80 Post Challenge – Post 79

You just acquired a magic wand. What will you use it for?

gasping/shocked/surprised face OpenClipArtThe penultimate 80 Post Challenge post! Goodness, I never thought I’d make it this far. ^_^ Next week I’ll talk more about what the challenge has meant to me, but I just wanted to acknowledge… wow! Almost there…!

Anyway… a magic wand? Really?!

Thank you. Yes, I think that would be rather a lot of fun! ^_^

Would you like my serious answer, or my not-so-serious answer, because I can do both. Yeah, of course I’m going to give you both.

With a magic wand I would try to fix some of my family up in ways they deserved to be fixed. And I’m not just talking about blood family here, I’m talking about friends who are close enough to me that they are called my family. They need houses, or help with bills. Or a good, long holiday. Or maybe a cleaner to take care of their houses. I would do these things for them with one sweep of my wand (in my mind called a lottery win – oooh, I’d better check my ticket!) to look after them. I want to look after them they way they have looked after me.
I would also ensure that my boys never want for anything.
Then, after rather selfishly taking care of all my wants, maybe I could look into a sure fire cure for cancer, the common cold and poverty.

First… banish all politicians to a single desert island. They can rule themselves there in whatever manner they choose and will have regular drops of food, clothing and media. They will no longer be allowed to have any sort of influence on how we run our lives.
Give myself a new mode of transportation, probably a purple unicorn.
Finally, I would give myself the ability to understand everybody. Every language in any form, including baby babble. I would couple that with the ability to talk right back, in any language I chose and then proceed to have buckets of fun!

And I would!

My 80 Post Challenge is brought to you with help from Tom Slatin’s 80 Journal Writing Prompts.
Also… note… that some of the questions in the original list are duplicated, so these later entries include questions from Tom’s second list.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Two thumbs up for the not so serious answer. The politician wish would be my serious answer.
    Bravo for reaching 79.

    I enjoy both the serious and the fun—how cool would a purple unicorn be? 🙂 And that universal understanding would be awesome. As would banishing the politicians, especially here in the US as we head toward the November elections…. 😛


    • Gosh, yes!
      I’ve been watching some of the coverage for these elections and I must say… I’m glad I’m not in the middle of it. These guys create a whirlwind that just sucks up everyone and everything!
      And why is it that they all want to be photographed kissing babies? o.O yikes!
