If I Had 3 Wishes
Cliche Question I Love To Ask People: If You Had Three Wishes, What Would They Be?
I don't know. I would not wish for knowledge of any kind, even that which I greatly strive for, because part of having knowledge is the process of earning it. I would not wish for the perfect body, because I should earn that on my own. I have little need for material devices of any kind, and I havea loving, caring family. I would not wish for the truth about the mysteries of the universe because I have no reason to know such things. I am pursuing my own dreams, so I have no reason to wish for them to come true, which also eliminates part of the point of having a dream. Be a cybernetically enhanced human.
One cold winter night many years ago in a little village in Spain an old man named Pedro and his wife, Joanna, sat in front of a cozy fire in their home.

The Three Wishes Video Lesson
Tonight I sat at the dinner table with my dad and my year-old brother. We made small talk, like always, about our how our day was and whether or not we were ready for the school year to start back up again. Spoiler alert: nobody's ready! Just as I was about to finish my plate, my brother spoke up, completely out of nowhere, and asked, "What would you do if you had three wishes?

Of course, he began to share his three wishes, such as wishing for infinite wishes, which my dad and I quickly told him was against the rules.
Everyone would love to have wishes that come true instantly. My wish list is endless. But if I were to select three they would be - first, to remember what my teachers teach me in school. Second - to have any toy I wish for in my hand. Then I won't trouble my father any more. Finally to keep my brother away from my work stations.

And no, you can't wish for more wishes I've thought about this question long and hard.
