This is a very simple and fun game. The first person makes a wish, and each following person finds some way to corrupt the wish and then makes a new wish. For example:

Person 1. I wish I had a dog

Person 2. You have a dog, but it dies the day after you get it

I wish I had a muffin

Person 3: You get a muffin, but you drop it and have to throw it away.

And so on.

Your firt wish to corrupt is this:

I wish I had a new car.

You realize, as you are trying to pull your grilled cheese sandwich apart, that this just isn't working. Especially while playing chess. So you go to the kitchen drawer to get a knife. Only butter knives, but what the heck, it shouldn't take that much leverage to pull a grilled cheese apart. Pfing! The knife gets flung across the kitchen and embeds itself into the wall. We'll just hang an apron on there, Mom won't notice that she now has a new hook to use.

You go back to the kitchen drawer and get out the trusty old pair of kitchen scissors. Only problem with them, they're really old and the edge wore off each blade about 10 years ago. They do a dang nice job of chewing up your sandwich (which you could have managed just fine with on your own if your dentures weren't in the shop). But for making one sandwich into two halves, they just don't cut it. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.) Back to the drawer.

Next you find the pizza cutter. Whing! Yep, it too slides through the sandwich and embeds itself in the wall. Nuts. Can't leave that there; you don't have another 10 of those like you do with the butter knife. Oh well. You pull it out but what to do with the nice clean incision in the kitchen wall. Oh boy! You have it. Those tall tales your older brother told you of college are going to come in handy at last. You trot down the hall, grab the toothpaste, a little spackling, and perfect, no cut mark! It does look a little funny to have neon mint green toothpaste (with freshmint mouthwash sparkles in it no less) on a lavender painted wall, but no matter. After all, if Mom finds out, you can just point to the new hook that you installed on your own!

Ok, back to the drawer. What to use, what to use. Somehow it seems that nothing short of a samurai sword is going to work. Since your whole family is currently out of those, it seems like nothing in your kitchen is going to pry that grilled cheese sandwich apart. Then it hits you. A prybar!

No the prybar didn't hit you, the idea did. Now to find one. Say, what IS a prybar. After spending several minutes online to look that question up (during which your sandwich is getting colder and colder and harder and harder), you learn that an acceptable substitute is the crowbar in your dad's stuff out in the garage. When you get there though, and stand there looking at that row of tools, you realize that the crowbar isn't going to pull your sandwich apart but it will put a nifty hole in the wall, given your history with cutting this thing. So that's out.

What to do, what to do... Then another idea hits you. No not another prybar, we tried that remember (or maybe you don't because it hit you on the noggin). But a jack hammer! That would work! And conveniently enough, there's a bunch of guys in hard hats down the street refinishing the pavement. You trot down there and ask to borrow the thing that's making all the noise. They look at you weird, but say ok. You place the blade against the original cut line of your sandwich and pull the handle. ZZZZZZZOOOONNNNKKKK. (Sorry it's hard to get the sound effects right when you're bouncing all over the place on the end of one of those things.) Sure enough, it worked. You now have TWO halves of a sandwich. It did, however, also leave behind a nice film of dust and a whole lot of little pieces of concrete which are just going to be murder to get out from between your teeth. UGH!!!

So you give up the fight, trash your sandwich and call out for pizza. Only problem is, you've timed out on your chess game and the other guy won after you only made one move. Sigh.

I wish for a nice ski trip since the Hawaii one didn't work out. And DON'T send me back to Arkansas!

You've won a fabulous trip to 'La Grave' ski resort in France; unfortunately, it turns out to be 'Your Grave.'

Gulp. The concoction you just swallowed has changed the chemistry of your brain. You are now endowed with the ability to correctly answer all questions. You just forgot how to ask them. Cheers!!

I wish for a big chocolate cake for my father's birthday party on Thursday!!! (Especially since the chocolate cakes I make turn into brownies.)

You get a big chocolate cake for your Father's birthday but as soon as anyone try to eat it, the cake turns into a brownie.

I wish we had a shower on our floor so I didn't have to go downstairs in the cold every morning.

Hey, you now have a shower on your floor! Too bad it only puts out cold water.

I wish my room doesn't feel so cold.

(((Lol I deliberately made that a chess sandwich, just to see if anyone would notice... ;-) )))

You have a Blender. Capital B, small l, small e, small d, small e, small n, small r. One Bledener... wait... that's not right...

Nevermind! You don't just have a Blender, you have THE Blender. The one and only! A hitman right off the streets of New York. Known as the Blender, due to his aggressive and torturous style of murder.

Uh oh... ummm... Mak? I'm not sure he likes you too much... uh... oh boy...

((LOL))

I wish I had a Cup. lol

You suddenly have your very own cup. You are so happy that you can finally have that morning cup of coffee. However, it is not that kind of cup, it is, in fact, the type of cup that fits inside your athletic supporter!
