Be Careful What You Wish For…..?

Over the years wishes come and go.
They change and morph and sometimes even come true.
But sometimes you need to look a little closer to see that they have come true.

When I was about thirteen, I saw an old Susan Hayward movie.
She was a struggling fashion designer who ‘made it big’.
But the part that struck me was how she signed her designs.
All lower case letters ….r a e.

I thought, someday that’s what I’m going to do!
Not the fashion designer part mind you, just the signature, all lower case initials.
I had no idea what I would be signing, but that didn’t seem to matter!

Lo, these many years later I was signing a sketch and that movie popped onto my head.
Shabam! Wish fulfilled!
And I didn’t even realize it until just that moment.
It’s not exactly the fame and fortune I thought it would be, but it still came true.

The moral of this story, be careful what you wish for…..?
Nope, the moral of the story is BE MORE EFFING SPECIFIC WHEN YOU WISH!

Because I forgot to include the fame and fortune part! LOL


  1. LOL! Love this post! You have now included the fame and fortune part…so get ready for the big time!

  2. :-D Yeah, the specific thing can be a witchy-kitty.

  3. you're not famous? no fortune, either? oh.

  4. The punch line was just great! Yes, we often don't see the fine print when we make our wishes! Anyone who has entered and gotten into a juried show though, is famous and successful in my books!

  5. I thought you were famous, rcw.


I appreciate your comments!
