My Three Wishes

Extracts from this document...


THREE WISHES If wishes were fishes we'd all have some fried. There is an old saying "Be careful what you wish for." Everyday three or more times we say that we wish we could have this or we wish we could have that. We do not realize that wishes also come with negative outcomes. If you had three wishes, then what would they be? In the book "The Monkey's Paw" they wish for things that aren't sensible and bad things happen. The first wish is for money and their son gets caught in the machinery at his work and they collect the amount of money they wished for. Their second wish is for their son to come back to life, and he comes back as a zombie. Both these wishes resulted in bad things happening because they weren't smart when they made their wishes. If I were to have the opportunity to make three wishes, my wishes would be: for me to be a professional skier, not having to worry about money, and having a condo in Park City Utah. ...read more.


Also, my wish to be a professional skier could have negative happenings. For instance, I could be skiing and get caught in an avalanche and die. I could also slide on a forty-degree ice face and die or I could also have a friend be hurt or die because I was being careless. Many things can happen depending on the conditions and the environment. Skiing is a very dangerous sport and there is a lot of risks in doing it, and in doing it you take risks. I hope nothing like this ever happens to me, but that is the risk I take. For my second wish I wished for me to never have to worry about money. Like most humans on the earth, we all would like to never have money problems. I would just like enough to live on and no more. Some people may say that I am nuts but that would be enough to make me happy. ...read more.


As with all wishes this one has many negative side effects. For instance an avalanche could wipe out the town or the holiday home could burn down. I would have to visit all the time and I wouldn't have time to do things that I want to do. Almost anything can happen when you wish for something that you necessarily don't need. In this paper I talked about the three things that I would wish for and they were: for me to be a professional skier, to have enough money to never have to worry again, and for me to have a holiday home in Paris or New York. I said that you need to be careful in what you wish for. This holds true because you never know what tomorrow brings. Anything possible can happen, and we build our own futures. Whenever you start to wish for something just stop and think a minute and make sure it is what your heart truly desires. Brian Fraser. 3BN. ...read more.
