"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Sunday Scribblings #8: Three Wishes

In the I wish game, I never know how to answer. Of course, I want the traditional things – money, health, happiness. I could wish for a number of things to be different in my life, including things that have happened in the last week. But, I have decided to stray from these wishes and offer the ones below...for fun. Enjoy.

1. I wish that the entire George Bush family, Dick Cheney, Toni Blair, Saddam Hussein, and Bin Lauden had to be exiled to an island to play the Survivor Game. Could you just imagine as the world tuned in every week to watch them fight over rewards and the immunity idol. I think this would do wonders for promoting world peace.

2. I wish that the "It’s a Small World" ride at Disney World never existed. Yeah, I still have nightmares where the song plays over and over again in my head, while those little dolls come alive and take over the world.

3. I wish that we had recess more as adults.

Thanks Sunday Scribblings for the weekly endeavors!

So funny and clever - I'd love to see the first one! As for the Small World dolls, I'd never thought of that ride in quite that context. And recess - hooray! Well done, you!

Oh, this is so flippin' brilliant! As a die-hard Survivor fan, I think you are absolutely on to something big with this--imagine the ratings! Oh, I'll be working th possibilities all day, trying to speculate who would "win!"

Your list just made me laugh! Let's hear it for adult recess--thanks for spreading the joy!

Fun and unusual wishes!! I don't think the Bush family would fare well at Survivor. They'd cheat like crazy and still starve to death. Poor them. But about Small World, really? I've heard it criticized, but not to the extent that someone would use up a wish on it! Must have been really traumatic for you!
