Christmas Wish List

It’s that time of year again. I was reminded on Monday that it is exactly 2 months until Christmas. You would think with all the bells and carols that go along with Christmas it wouldn’t be able to sneak up on me like it does every year. Sigh….

Every year around this time the family members are asked to make a Christmas wish list to assist the person buying for them. I have a hard time with making a wish list but one given on my list is Tom Hanks movies. My family knows that’s a good standby if they are ever in need of ideas. So, as I pondered what to add to my list this year this is what I came up with….

This year for Christmas I would like:

  • a shiny red sports car that goes zoom-zoom really fast
  • peace on earth
  • a pair of really cute boots that fit my weird feet and legs
  • to climb to the highest point of the Eifel Tower at night and look out over the city of Paris all lit up like a lady dressed for a fancy dinner
  • an amazing piece of artwork to serve as the theme for my bedroom décor
  • to know why we have an appendix since it seems to serve no purpose
  • a publishing contract for one of the books that is still in my head (I know, I know, I have to write it first, but this is a WISH list!)
  • to end the suffering of the people of Haiti who are now dealing with cholera as they try to rebuild their shattered lives
  • a new sofa and a great chair for my living room
  • to jump out of a plane and feel the exhilaration of free falling and then once the chute opens glide gently to back to earth
  • a secret super power so that my shiny red sports car would be invisible to the popo’s radar – speeding tickets are not on the wish list!

So, fess up, what’s on your wish list!?!


  1. Great list! I wanted new carpet, and I'm getting it, but not for Christmas. In time for Thanksgiving...I'd really like it if my kids became best friends, and there was peace and contentment aplenty. I think that is too tall of an order, though.

  2. Well, Lisa, you never know. I've become best friends with my siblings so anything is possible :-)
