Wish (verb) feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen.
Wishing means wanting a thing or experience you cannot possibly have no matter what you do. In short, wishing means wanting the impossible and today I want impossible things.
I wish it was still September with gloriously bright 70 degree days instead of blustery October full of drizzle and grey.
I wish I wanted to eat my vegetables as much as I want to eat candy corn and chocolate.
I wish students would grammar and spell check before turning in their papers. I wish I could spend my time giving them meaningful feedback instead of simply serving as a proofreader.
On that note, I wish all the kids struggling with sentence structure were in one class instead of scattered throughout the day, and the kids who need pointers on language use had class together (yeah, buddy, "I seen you got that wrong there"), and the kids who need help understanding verbs (the myriad of tenses and choices and their general necessity to every sentence's meaning) had class together. That would make teaching writing a quadzillion times easier.
I wish my knee would stop hurting and the medicine to make my knee stop hurting would stop hurting my stomach.
I wish I could reason with wingnuts.
I wish Jax would quit pooping underneath the clotheslines.
I wish Rose would leave the houseplants alone. (I covered the dirt with aluminum foil, we'll see if that keeps her out.)
I wish I never had to repeat myself when giving instructions.
Spill it, reader. What do you wish?
