Watch What You Wish For
I remember a moment in time when my pre-teen daughter said, "If I could only get braces, I'll never want another thing in my life."
I said, "I wish I had a recorder."
Man by our very nature never seems never to have enough, as our current economy testifies. For today's prompt, the theme will center on a wish come true...but let's add a twist. The reality wished for is not what the wisher intended.

*I wish Sci-fi was real
*I wish I could get pregnant
I'd love to hear what you do with this one! Have fun!
