No ma'am.

See, I took mushroom clouds and ecological disasters to be off-limits as wish corruption, because they would be too easy. But then again, I didn't wish for world peace (or whirled peas) because I thought that was too obvious for this game.

I got a good chuckle about the dogs with hairballs, though.

Patricia didn't wish for world peace (or whirled peas); she wished for a white Christmas. The BOOM! moves in mysterious ways.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that the two were linked that way, just that I had discounted both as possibilities. An "end of the world" scenario could be used to corrupt pretty much any wish. And world peace is something I always wish for-- I'm notorious at our house for putting it at the top of Christmas lists, etc. (Keeping in mind that peace begins at home, and I have two teenagers, I admit that this wish has had certain overtones in recent years.)

I don't know about that. I could wish for a Pistachio and White Chocolate Massimo's icecream right about now (truly, I could ), and the wish wouldn't be corrupted by the "end of the world" scenario of a splodey mushroom. I think the point of the thread is that to be "corrupted" the wish has to be granted, but in a Monkey's Paw kind of way. Thus, a "white Christmas" is granted by a "nuclear winter", and world peace is granted by being forced to listen to people sitting around campfires holding hands singing Kum Ba Yah.

Cheers,
Marc

I'll definitely grant you the nuclear winter thing. I guess I was too sleepy to catch the reference.

I refuse to even consider the campfire singalong scenario. Some things are not meant to be contemplated. (At least not after the kind of week I had this week.)

That's very true. I know, I said "icecream" at some stage - let's all think wonderful thoughts about icecream (we're going for a walk with the dogs down to the beach now, so we will probably be having a Massimo's. I'll buy one for you too, neko, and describe it to you later so you can taste and savour it vicariously. Ahh, the things I do for my friends...I'm such a treasure POSTCARD: "Weather's fine. Icecream's luvverly. I wish you were here").

Cheers,
Marc (also contemplating chicken and mushroom laksa for dinner)

Granted -- but only because your whole lawn is now a lake. Your back porch and kitchen too.

Ummm. I wish ... I wish ... oh, I know, I'll wish to be independently wealthy so I can retire and read ebooks.

Granted. Now everyone is independently wealthy but there is nothing to buy including something to read your ebooks on.

And I still wish I had proposed to my wife sooner.

Granted, they're Zimbabwean dollars - don't spend them all at once .

I wish in all stories where the hero is given three wishes; he uses one of those wishes to wish for infinite wishes.

Granted. The stories are all excruciatingly boring and infinitely long.

I wish there is no such thing as wishing.
