I think every human wishes (dreams); at times it is envy, but not always.
(Even if in a traffic jam, most of us have wished we had chosen another route!)
In my youth as I read comic books, I wished many times I could fly like Superman and Captain Marvel.
As a kid, our family traveled a lot. Dad picked up hitchhikers back then. Many times it made for interesting trips; learning others’ lives. I enjoyed it when dad would pick up a man in uniform. Most of the time he was headed home on ‘liberty’, or back to the base. I started wishing I wore a uniform and could hitchhike.
Reading Pauline’s “Wanna Be Cowgirl” I was reminded of the Saturday morning cowboy movies I slipped off to see. Shows (Movies) were a sin at our church, so I did a lot of sneaking, knowing God would forgive me (OUCH). BUT I can remember wishing there were no cars and we were back in real COWBOY times. I wished I was a cowboy!
I am smiling now thinking about my best friend in the USMC, Dallas Fletcher. Cpl. Fletcher would hitch-hike to Pennsylvania from NC many weekends and was never late making it back for muster on Monday morning. He said he just had to go see that cute Marion. He married Marion; I married Sherry, all 4 of us are still around enjoying 65 years of marriage. Marion kept having babies until Dallas found out what was causing them. ;-). I found out after 2. He is a slow learner. ;-0
I wished for years we could just travel. And we eventually did. WE took only 3 cruises. Then Covid hit, now that is out. BUT today as you read this we should be ON THE ROAD, a few hours from NC.
Sherry will be studying for her medical tests next Monday. Sunday she will really study, Smart a-- Buddy SAID, ‘I hope everything comes out all right as she ‘studies.’ Seems everyone makes jokes about a colonoscopy. Buddy even suggested she have the DR. do the Endoscopy before the colonoscopy. Methinks that is probably a good idea! Huh?
Any way we are hoping and praying all the reports will be good and she will pass with ‘flying colors.’
Speaking of wishing, Sherry WISHES this was all OVER & DONE!
