Wish Big Giveaway Hop

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.

Wish Big Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Wish Big Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!

There’s an old saying about wishes – honestly there are probably LOTS of old sayings about wishes – that goes, “If wishes were horses then beggars would ride.” At least that’s the version I remember.

We make wishes in all kinds of situations, blowing out birthday candles, seeing the first star at night, seeing a falling star, throwing a coin in a well. It’s a bit of superstition, but it’s generally a harmless one.

The results of a wish all depend on what you do after you make it, doesn’t it? Some wishes are close to impossible to fulfill. Others can be helped along, if we’re willing to do the work to turn the impossible into the possible. There’s another saying about this very thing, this one attributed to Mary Kay Ash, “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.”
