Here’s a “for example” if you need one: let’s say you’re on fire, and you don’t want to be. Keep your wish simple and direct, along the lines of, “I wish I were not on fire!” Don’t get “funny”/sarcastic with your wish, because it could be misinterpreted. Let’s say you’re on fire and you don’t want to be and you have one wish. DON’T phrase your wish, “I don’t know what I hate more, being on fire or having hardly any accessories. I wish ONE of these problems would be taken care of immediately!” The picture above is a representation of what COULD happen! In closing, stay in school, kids. Stay in school forever. They can’t kick you out if you don’t leave! Okay, on to the next town. I AM ONE BUSY, LITERAL GENIE!
EDIT: Dear everyone: I did not realize this dumb poster tagline actually reads, “Be careful what you WITCH for.” In addition to being embarrassed that my comedic premise has been rendered invalid, I am angry that I spent all that time typing that stuff out with my thumbs when the tagline DOESN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE. Don’t these fools realize I am trying to create ART here?
