Thank Goodness all wishes don’t come true. The wish I made #99wordstories


At five I wished on a candle stuck in a little soldiers head, impaled in the icing of a Victoria sponge cake. My wish was sent out to the universe to be granted and promptly forgotten, … as spur of the moment wishes often are.

If I had to guess, I expect it was to be allowed to strip off the icing, to eat it first. If so, it would not have come true. Today, at 64 I send out daily gratitude affermations. I thank the universe for the wonderful life I have now; and of course for saving my teeth.

This is for Charli’s Monday 99 word story prompt, you can read all the collection of stories > here <

P.S. I publish this on my first born’s birthday.

I would love to read your favourite best wish in the comments x

  1. Happy belated birthday to your first born, how do they grow up so fast? I also give thanks for having my teeth, in my line of work it is definitely a blessing 👄

  2. What a lovely piece… of cake and flash! You know, I never had a birthday cake as a child. My family was different… let’s say. Anyway, my first birthday cake was made by my step-daughter who make the icing… with sugar, not powdered sugar. We laughed for years over that. What a great memory. ❤

  3. That is an interesting thought about making a wish on blowing out your birthday candle – I did but also can’t remember a single wish. I wonder if your son will also make a wish. Happy birthday to him. I’m with you on the teeth. You don’t realise when you are younger just what lies ahead.

    1. My three, all made a blow at the candle every birthday, but ‘shhh! It’s a secret’ was always the response. Maybe they blew with such haste just to get to the icing 😁 we may never know.
