I didn't realize I would take this so seriously


Good morning! While all of you were resting your weary little eyes, I was... preparing. I stared at my tea, and meditated on what I was about to do in twenty minutes. Five minutes prior, I bundled up, took one magic dandelion (saving one for Jason), and headed outside.

I checked the watch. One minute left. I rehearsed the lines in my mind, making sure there were no disastrous loopholes.

On 11/11, at 11:11 and 11 seconds, I made a sincere wish about my own life. I also wished for peace and healing for a few of my loved (very, very loved) ones. And just as unexpected tears started to burn my eyes, I noticed all the little seeds I'd sent bobbing along the breeze and grinned. I remembered to wish that they all grew into resilient little offspring just like the stubborn yellow flower they came from.


If you make a wish today, I hope it comes true too

P.S. I'm going to start planning next year's wish (11/11/11 @ 11:11:11) now. That's going to be legendary.

Aaaw this was so sweet and sentimental.

I serendipitously checked my cellphone at 11:11 p.m. on 11/11, and made one of those "loop hole" wishes, but I hope that it turns out as intended anyway. I always think that God listens to the wishes and not some dick, Rob Williams-voiced blue creature, so that makes me feel better about blabbing something out on the fly. However, the whole world peace thing never comes to mind when I'm making my wishes, and that probably makes God grumpy. Sorry God!
