Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker JupiterPluvius: If the Wish Fairy gave you one wish, that would be simultaneously granted both to you and to the person at whom you are currently angriest, what would that wish be?

I'm not angry at anyone at the moment, unless you count the sort of nebulous, borderless, morphing anger that gets directed at people like political strategists and advertising executives, people whose names I may never know, but who shape the world, and hence my life in it, in ways I constantly resist.

And if those people count, then I wish for both myself and for them the desire and ability to make others a little happier, and to make ourselves a little happier, because to make others less happy is a crime, and to make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts.
