Be Careful What You Wish For...

Last year about this time, we played a fun game that seemed to go over well. So, I thought we'd do it again (who says I'm not original?).


In this game of "Be Careful What You Wish For, " you'll get to make a wish. The next poster will grant your wish, but in such a way as to make you regret you wished for it.

For example, let's say I wish for a million dollars. The next person to comment will grant my wish, but give me my million in pennies. She will then make a wish. Let's say she wishes for a new house. The next commentor will grant her wish, however, the house will be full of mold that makes her break out in hives. She makes a wish, etc, etc. Get it?

We can all let out a little holiday frustration AND you could win some cute Christmas prize packs for your cruelty to others.

I'll get us started:

In honor of my latest rejection letter (written on my birthday, no less!), I'll wish for the obvious:

I wish I had a book contract.

Go ahead; somebody corrupt my wish. (It might even make me feel better.)

You have you contract, but it has to be written in the style of LOLcats!

I wish for a new laptop

Nini said...

LOL...and for Christmas you get:


A bean bag tray to place atop your lap..hence a laptop.


I wish for:

a new Jeep


Nini :)

Jen said...

Nini, you get a brand spanking new Jeep...one of the Barbie ones from Toys'R that runs on the plug-in battery. You're the envy of every four-year old girl for a fifty mile radius. ;-)

I wish for a day of pampering at the spa -- mani/pedi/ facial, hot stone massage.

Smarty Pants said...

Jen, you get your day at the spa, but the products break you out in a horrible rash and you find the next day the place has been closed down for a substandard health rating and you have to go get hepatitis shots.

I want diamond earrings.

Instigator said...

SP, you get your diamond earrings only to be held up outside the mall the next night returning the ugly sweater you received.

I wish I had a romantic cruise vacation with my husband.

Instigator

Playground Monitor said...

You have your romantic cruise, but a hurricane has just blown through the area and the seas are CHOPPY. And oops! You forgot your seasickness pills and the ship's doctor forgot to place his order.

I wish for weekly housecleaning service.

Kathy said...

You get your weekly housecleaning service, PM, but are arrested for hiring an illegal alien.

I wish I could lose 20 pounds.

Smarty Pants said...

You lose your 20 lbs, Kathy, but its the result of a really nasty stomach bug that knocks you out for over a week.

I want to go to Italy.

Darling Geek said...

$1million in pennies? Been done...

SP, you get to go to Italy, but it is unseasonably cold and the owner of the apartment basement you are staying refuses to turn on the heat, so your newborn baby cries all night.

Wait... that sounds familiar...

I wish for a second Guitar Hero controller.

Lynn Raye Harris said...

You get the Guitar Hero controller, but you forgot to plug your Wii into a surge protector and a freak storm fries it. It's a lovely paperweight that PC uses on the dining room table to hold down the pages of her next fabulous WIP.

I want new furniture....

Playground Monitor said...

You have new furniture... upholstered in green camo material. And the tables are made from those big telephone cable reels.

I want my muse to come back.

robynl said...

PM, you get your muse back but the muse talks to you in a foreign language that you don't understand; also, your muse keeps bringing up another story line all together and you want it to be about the story you are currently working on because you have a deadline shortly.

I wish for new carpet and lino for the house.

Maureen said...

Robynl,

You get your new carpet and lino but you are extremely allergic to the chemicals in the new carpet and therefore must take strong allergy medication that makes you so tired you never notice your carpet.

I wish for a new couch.

Instigator said...

Maureen, you get your new couch only to have your dog chew the arms off and leave a message of foam, wire and tiny bits of material for you to clean up.

I wish for a huge flat panel LCD TV for my bedroom.

Instigator

Instigator said...

That should be mess. Although I suppose the mess could also be a message from the dog. Apparently he thought the couch was ugly?

Lynn Raye Harris said...

You get the flat panel tv, but it will only show ONE channel. ESPN Brasil. :)

I want a new Porsche....

Sassy said...

Instigator...

You get your huge flat panel LCD TV for your bedroom but while on your Romantic cruise with your husband a sink whole opens in the yard near your bedroom and that side of the house is inhabitable do to your cracked foundation.

I want a Christmas Bonus

Sassy said...

oops sorry to slow I guess

Playground Monitor said...

Lynn, you get your Porsche, but it's one owned previously by Willie Nelson and converted to run on used vegetable oil. The exhaust smells like a busy night at McDonalds.

Sassy, you get your Christmas bonus but it's paid in Enron stock.

I want someone to cook Christmas dinner for me.

PM

Ayla said...

You get your dinner cooked for you, but the turkey is burnt and raw at the same time and you all get food poisening.

i want to finish my assignment well, and get a good grade on it

catslady said...

You finished your assignment "well" but it was dry but it was made from Grade A materials :)

I want that new kitchen I was promised 3 years ago.

cas2ajs said...

Catslady, you get that new kitchen. Unfortunately, the builders make an error on the address and install everything at your previous residence.

I want a new bathroom

Instigator said...

Cas, you get your new bathroom but the builders paint it a hideous shade of neon orange.

I want two solid weeks to concentrate on nothing but my writing

Instigator

Kimberly L said...

Instigator, you get your two week for writing but your neighbors choose those two weeeks to do construction on their house.

Kimberly L said...

Forgot to add my wish. I wish for a new house.

catslady said...

You get your new house but it was built on land with no road access.

I want my daughter to move and live only a few minutes away from me.

Maibeeme said...

Catslady, your daughter has moved just five minutes away from you, but she has a new job that takes her out of town every couple of days so you have to water her plants and feed her animals for her and only see her once a month or so.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!

you will get a book contract writing manuals for a computer that will be outdated by the time you finish the book!
