“I hate that one,” a friend said. “Life is so difficult already, and they’re saying you’re not even supposed to wish?”
That little aphorism is so old and musty and familiar, I never gave it much thought until my friend said that. But now that she mentions it…what the hell?
What kind of crippling curse is that to put on someone? How can you wish for anything when you are told that there’s a damn good chance that wish will blow up in your face?
