She looked up at the lit up boards. Not too long until the adventure really begins. Until the dream starts to feel like reality. Her ears perk up at the sound of the announcement bell and she plays close attention. No gate changes or delays today thankfully. *** Safely on the ground, she disembarks and is instantly hit with a… Continue reading A radical change
“Remember those lovely genies who grant wishes? Well, you’re one and you’ve just been emancipated from your restrictive lamp. You can give your three wishes to whomever you want. Who do you give your three wishes to, and why?” The first people I would grant three wishes to would be my parents. The two people who have given me… Continue reading Three wishes for everyone!
A time machine, an invisibility helmet or a door to anywhere? A no-brainer, really. A door to anywhere. I see crystal clear beaches and magnificent sunsets, I see European escapades and Arabian nights (cue Aladdin soundtrack :)…), Dinner in Paris and breakfast in Times Square!
