Be Careful What You Wish For.
"I Wish I Could" by Dean Walley was one of my favorite books when I was a little boy. The story is about the different wishes the narrator, a young boy, would like to come true: to be able to fly, or to be a friendly giant, to be able to turn invisible, etc. Fortunately, my parents kept this book so I could read it to my own kids someday. Which I do.
So, the other night when I finished reading it to my 4-year-old, Juju, I asked him what his wish would be.
He replied, "I wish I had a blowhole on my back that sprayed water. I would spray water all over everybody. Then, the water would make a giant splash park, and everybody could play!"
Gross, but still kind of sweet. I guess it's the thought that counts, right? Right?
