Wish Tip: You might die fast

Your wish should probably be succinct, without a lot of clauses and exceptions. I know that’s hard to do, but it isn’t likely that you will die leisurely, like in cartoon quicksand.

I said, “And Rick? Is he as conflicted as you?”

“Oh no,” Brenda said. “He’s had his wish forever. Something about honeybees. Very responsible. Very targeted. Very linguistically simple, so he can say it even under the most challenging circumstances, like in a car crash.”

I liked the idea of Rick in a car crash. I also imagined a number of other challenging, drawn out scenarios featuring Rick gasping, groaning, coughing out his bee wish.
