Welcome to the Wish Big Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!
There are so many variations of the old saying about being careful what you wish for. Pretty much all of them have a sting in the tail, in the same way that “May you live in interesting times” is a curse and not a blessing.
Most of the versions of the quote go something along the lines of “Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.” But I found a couple of interesting ones that I hadn’t seent before, and now that I’ve read them I can’t un-see them.
Terry Pratchett had one. Of course he did. Sir Terry had so many great lines spread out over all the Discworld books. Pratchett’s variation goes, “Be careful what you wish for. You never know who will be listening,” which was certainly true in the Discworld.
And also leads to my other favorite variation, the one that goes, “All great sci-fi is: Be careful what you wish for.” Combined with another more famous quote about science fiction, that “The Golden Age of Science Fiction is twelve,” it makes for a really frightening thought!
There are no frightening wishes here, so if you wish to fill out the rafflecopter below, you might get a wish – or at least a wish for a $10 Amazon Gift Card or $10 in Books – granted.
