The Annual Holiday Wish Game...


With Christmas right around the corner, it's time to get your Grinch on and let some of that holiday frustration out.

Time to play Be Careful What You Wish For!

I love this game! And y'all are so good at it that I look forward to it each year.

Here are the rules for those who might be new: I will make a wish. You will grant my wish -- in such a way to make me regret wishing it. You will then get to make a wish, and the next commenter will make you regret it. So, let's say I wish for a million dollars. The first commenter will grant my wish, but make me regret it by giving it to me in pennies. That person makes her wish -- say for a full-body massage. The next commenter grants it -- but the massage is provided by a hobbit who does it with his hairy hobbit feet.

Get it? Come on, you know you need to get Grinchy and let it out. This is a safe place, my friends. You know you'll feel so much better afterward.

And the more evil your attempt to thwart a wish is, the better.

I will be providing prizes for those of you who excel at this exercise. My criteria for prizes will, of course, be completely arbitrary and probably unfair as they will be made up on the spot. ~evil grin~

So here we go!

I wish someone would come finish stripping the varnish off the kitchen floor.

Go! Thwart!

But the stuff they use to strip the varnish stinks and will stay in the house until after Christmas, making eating christmas food unbearable!!!

I wish someone would rewrite my sex scene in Chp 6 for my fourth set of revisions!

Laurie said...

OMG! My 22 yo son thinks he can handle this. What has he been up to at college?

I wish for a new car. My van is getting fixed again!

Smarty Pants said...

Laurie, you get your new car, but its a chromed out Escalade and now you've got a $1500 a month car payment, plus insurance.

I wish I could lose 20 pounds!

Playground Monitor said...

You've just won a brand new Tata Nano! Congrats. But you have to pay the shipping charges to get it from the dealership in New Delhi.

I wish I had a 3 bedroom apartment.

Angel said...

Hmmm... I'll take SPs.

You get your wish to lose 20 pounds... by contracting some rare tapeworm that takes 2 years to get rid of and turns your skin a sickly yellow color in the process.

I wish for 5 extra hours in my day, now through the new year.

Angel

Smarty Pants said...

PM, you get your 3 bedroom apartment. Except that's all its got. No kitchen, no bathrooms.

I wish it wasn't so cold out.

Smarty Pants said...

Trying to get us caught up here...


Angel, you get 5 extra hours again, however, you have to spend them doing push ups.

See prior wish re: cold!

Playground Monitor said...

You wish it wasn't so cold? Have you forgotten the summer?

It's 110 in the shade with 100% humidity and neither your car nor house has air conditioning.

Smarty Pants said...

Make a new wish, PM!

Playground Monitor said...

New wish... new wish...

I wish I had a list of undeniably interesting blog topics for 2011.

Problem Child said...

PM, you will write fabulous blogs that attract every troll and spammer in the blogosphere, causing you to blow a fuse.

I wish the delivery guy would hurry and show up.

Darling Geek said...

The delivery guy shows up. Congratulations! You have a new daughter - 12.9lbs.

I wish for world peace.

alinaduffer said...

You get world peace but its because we are all mindless zombies being controlled by an evil puppet master.


I wish I could finally get published!

catslady said...

You finally get published but you didn't read the fine print and you have to pay them for each book printed.


I wish I never had to pay taxes again.

Playground Monitor said...

You never have to pay taxes again because you have no income to tax. :-(

I wish I could be on the "massage of the week" plan.

Cheryl said...

You are on the massage of the week plan but you have to go to the State Penitentiary to receive it.

I wish I could have a personal assistant who handles all my problems and cleans.

Smarty Pants said...

Cheryl, I grant you your personal assistant, but she's illiterate, smells bad and steals things from your house.

I wish my neck would stop hurting.

catslady said...

I grant your wish, no more neck pain, but now every other bone in your body hurts!

I wish all my bills were paid.

Gretchen Stull said...

Granted, your bills are all paid off. Unfortunately, they're paid off in sexual favors by a group of nefarious young women, and now the cops are after you for being a pimp.

I wish I had a new job.

Linda Henderson said...

You get your wish and get a new job, but then you find out it's shoveling poop at the local chicken farm.

I wish I could speak French.

Laurie G said...

Sacre Bleu! Mon Dieu! your new French teacher turns out to be a retired chef with a cleaver! and he knows how to use it ! PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE toute de suit!
au revoire!

Laurie G said...

OOPS Pardon, suite should have an e.

toute de suite

It's been a long time since I had HS French!

catslady said...

Laurie didn't make a wish or are we done lol.

Problem Child said...

I guess we're done :-(

Winners posted soon!
