Granted, but now you have to stand by and constantly stir while it ages.

I wish I had some good balsamic syrup.

That's what I'm doing now.

Granted, but you have to store it in an evil container, and it runs off with your wife.

Coincidentally....I am aging some balsamic as well. In original bottle.....to get real...I really should have secured a wooden cask, or maybe put some wood chips in there? Need to go to a vinegar tasting class to see if I'm improving anything or just making swill.

That evil container..............is..............my wife. Doesn't make much sense though. Granted: but you can only use it slathered on wifey, and wait for it to drip off.

Whats you wish, as I do wish to twist it?

Granted. It's an untwistable wish.

I wish I had the upcoming days figured out.

Granted. They're the End Days and you've figured that out.

I wish my eyes were good enough to paint.

Granted. Your eyes are now painted green.

I wish I could move into the house I bought.

Granted. But the previous owners and all their cattle still live in it.

I wish I could see Gord's pretty green eyes.

Granted, but you can see nothing else.

I wish twisting a wish into an even more wonderous wish was at least half as much fun.

Granted. It is at least half as much fun, but it still sucks.

I wish the colour orange was the colour green

Granted. But now when coveting the newest and greatest, you are orange with envy.

I wish people stopped wasting emotions that aren't helpful or productive.

Granted, people now make full use of emotions that aren't helpful or productive.

I wish I had a better workspace so that I could do better work.

Granted, but someone has hidden your white glue and pipe cleaners.

I wish people would vote their own long term interests rather than be misled by values issues, most of which should not even be subject to legislation.

Granted: People now counter their own votes by voting both for and against everything because it turns out all long term interests are based on values issues.

I wish I could find my white glue and pipe cleaners.

Value voters too nuanced? Some values benefit the voters directly, others don't and just cause the voters to get used.

Granted but the glue bottle top was loose and all your pipe cleaners are glued to the desk.

I wish...............hmmm.......actually I don't. I'm kinda a take it as it comes and deal with it kind of guy.

I wish people could stay on topic and not be so easily sidetracked into dead ends........like value voters.

Granted; you put all the people on ignore and then stop being a person so there's only one topic and even if you go off it you don't count.

I wish my silver paint wasn't all dried up and useless.

Granted but now all your other paint is dried up and useless.

I wish I could paint or more so sketch as a master.

Granted, you can paint as well as dead Rembrandt (who hasn't produced much lately).

I wish I could go to sleep right now.

Seems to me a "dead" master can't paint, failing fulfillment of the wish. But taking unfair meanings is often what the devil do.

Granted, but you will never wake up.

I wish I could test that "active dreaming" equipment before spending the $150 as it would be so cool if it actually worked....I might not want to wake up.

Granted, but it costs $3 million to test it.

I wish "the corrupted wish game" had been a more blatant title for "taking unfair meanings to fail fulfilment of wishes".

Granted....and that wouldn't even correct the fact that the test for Active Sleeping goggles would cost $150 which was the basis of the wish.

I wish people could communicate exactly what they actually meant to communicate. And then work on what they should have meant.
