The other morning, I watched the episode, Je Souhaite, in season 7 of X Files. which involves a jinni who grants three wishes (usually, with disastrous consequences) to each possessor of her magic carpet. And my coincidence, later that same day, I was asked: if I had three wishes, what would they be?
That's a much more difficult question than one might think.
The temptation is, first of all, to be altruistic -- to wish for good health and success of the people I love. When allowed to be self-centered, though, it is much harder to determine what I might want.
I did, ultimately, come up with three wishes. They seemed rather mundane. Before I tell you, though, I ask you:
What are your three wishes for yourself?
