I sat pondering what to write my next entry about with nothing coming to my mind. So I closed my eyes and forced myself to think of something. During this time my mind starts wandering down some strange path. I start thinking about what I would do if I had a couple million dollars, which led my brain down another path; I started thinking of how I would build my house considering I had a large budget.
Somehow I snapped back from my mental wanderings and I thought of my blog entry: What I think about when I want to go to sleep or just plain day dream.
I think it started when I was 14 or 15. We were living in Grandpa Ivies house in Orem. During the summer nights I would walk over to Geneva Elementary and just sit in the swings and stare up at the stars while I day dreamed about space or other fun non-sense.
I started thinking how I would LOVE to explore space, but I wouldn’t want to leave my family to super extended lengths of time. I also started thinking about how I would survive out there. And once out there, in space, how would I find my way back home? So after a few nights of thinking things through I finally figured out what I would need. Which led me to thinking about how I would get something like what I am about to describe. It would have to be in a well worded wish. You know because wishes are real and genies are out there! 😉
So if I were to get 3 wishes, one of my wishes would entail the following:
I would wish for a force field that would cover my entire body, leaving about 1/4 inch of space around my skin. It would have the following qualities:
- Completely impenetrable, it would only allow safe levels of light and sound through.
- It produced breathable air and maintain a nice 73 degree temperature inside.
- Automatic; it would turn on automatically when it sensed I was in mortal peril.
- I could control the field and wrap it around anything/anyone.
- It would be able to travel at any speed and even fold space.
- There would be a HUD(heads up display) that would show a map of my travels and how to get back to Earth.
- It had the ability to go invisible. Which I would use while exploring alien worlds, just in case they were hostile.
Since that summer I have thought back to that wish MANY times. Most of the time I use it when I can’t fall asleep at night. I will think of the different ways I could use that and how I could help mankind. Or even what different worlds would be like. I still love to daydream about things like that.
Apart from that wish I think the second most wish I think about is the ability to heal. No matter what the problem I would be able to heal it. How cool would that be?!
Another wish I thought about would be the ability to speak every language known to man fluently, including every dialect and slang variant.
One wish that Kirk, my best friend, thought of was a pair of pants or a wallet that always had the exact amount of money you needed at the time. So you could buy anything you wanted with cash!
This post is rather a personal one, seeing as I am telling you, and basically the world, my inner thoughts. So don’t think me anymore psycho than I am already!
What are some of your wishes?
