If granted five wishes, what would you ask for?


John Gray recently posted a list of ten-things he would want, nothing extravagant.  Now there have been times in the recent past when what I would have asked for on the spur of the moment, was a certain co-worker's head on a platter, but I am really not that kind of a person (unless I am provoked.) Because it is Sunday, it is five, so here are my five questions about what would you ask for if granted five simple wishes.

1: Would you ask for more vacation time time or more money?  You can only have one of the two.
2: Where would you go, if you had to leave today and come back in a week?
3: What space in your home would you like someone to clean for you and why?
4: What item, under $50 (or pounds or euros) would you buy for yourself?
5: Who would you wish to win the lottery and why?

My answers:
1: Would you ask for more vacation time time or more money?  You can only have one of the two.
I am running short of paid vacation and leave time.  I would like to spend more time with my parents and with J in the other house. So for me vacation time.

2: Where would you go, if you had to leave today and come back in a week?
London, with a side trip to Wales to meet John in person. It has been too long, I really miss my ancestral homeland.

3: What space in your home would you like someone to clean for you and why?
My closet needs cleaning and organizing.  Being a little bit stingy it is the hardest space for me to clear out, and I know there are things in there I will never wear again.

4: What frivolously item, under $50 (or pounds or euros) would you buy for yourself?
I'd like another drone, the last one ended up stuck in a tree.

5: Who would you wish to win the lottery and why?
My father, it would mean so much to him, and at nearly 89 and in bad health, he wouldn't spend it all.

      Too funny. I misread #4 as Y A M not Y A R N.

  4. 1) I'm self employed so More Money! Then I can take even more time off.
    2) right now? A week? Vancouver BC cause it's an easy flight and is beautiful there this time of year.
    3) Due to the excellent housekeeper the house is tip top so I'd have to say the garage is what I'd want cleaned.
    4) I know my answer if this said "Frivolous item at Tiffany for $12,000" would be but that isn't the question. Let's see under $50? A fabulous new vintage tuxedo jacket from my favorite second hand shop to go with the new marked down Top Hat I picked up last week.
    5) I wish my husband would win the lottery so we could set it up in trust for our families and The San Diego Humane society right after we picked up that watch for $12,000 at Tiffany I have my eye on.

    3. all of it really. But I would vote for a thorough backyard tidy-up
