    My wishes:
    1) That everyone has a complaint/issue/prejudiced against a group gets to walk a mile in that persons shoe for a month. For example, the wealthy who think that a poor person is just lazy and needs to get a job, someone who is racist or homophobic gets to change color or orientation, etc.

    2) Perform a social experiment. Does absolute power corrupt absolutely? The entire world will now be controlled by women. Let’s see if we can do a better job.

    3) As a child, my only escape from abuse was when I escaped into the fantasy of reading. I grew up very poor and can remember always wanting a book of my own. I learned that being able to read and getting an education was my only way out of the situation. So, my final wish would be to give the entire world the gift of being able to read.

  3. Hmm, let me see, three wishes. My first wish is that I could get rid of the ugly stretch marks on my legs that I got from all the swelling before they got my severe RA somewhat under control. They are very unsightly. Wish number two would be for my oldest daughter to get the breast reduction she wants so badly, she really needs it. And finally, wish number three. I wish my son-in-law would develop a brain so he would realize that penis enlargement supplements bought from an infomercial DO NOT WORK.

    P.S. He really did try it

  4. Reader Challenge:

    Since you want unique wishes this of course means they can be frivolous as well. Normally I’d say that I would wish for an end to disease and world hunger and poverty because those are nice and safe and sweet and no one would judge you for them but since you want unique I figure what the hell.

    1. Every woman that has ever been involved with a man has wished this one at least once. “I wish you knew what it was like to have a period regularly.” I’ve wished this one myself on my own husband. I’d grant it. Every man in the world would be required to spend one year dealing with what women all over the world have dealt with since they hit puberty.

    2. Men always say they wish women knew what it felt like to get kicked in the nuts and really it’s only fair that you have to spend a year with a dick but hey then you get to find out why they think blowjobs are so great.

    3. I would probably cater to fangirls everywhere and finally get that on screen kiss for their otp. (one true pair) Mostly because I know plenty of women in the same fandoms as myself and well that means I get to enjoy them too.

  5. If i were santa the three wishes i would grant would be.
    1)to live in a fantasy book. i would grant this because i’d always love to live in some of the books i read.
    2)Have a fairytale ending. i mean who doesn’t want a fairytale ending.
    3)Cure a sickness. id grant that because though we will all die eventually why not give that person a little more time with their loved one.
