As a child, I learned five ways to make a wish. 1) close my eyes real tight and make a wish while blowing with all my might at the dandelion in my hand. 2) wish at the stars up in the night sky. 3) when going through a tunnel, close my eyes, put my hand on the roof of the car, hold my breath, and make a wish until the end of the tunnel. 4) if a stray eyelash was on my cheek, I'd blow it off but not before making a wish. And then of course, the last one is what I found myself doing last week, blowing out birthday candles, eyes shut, making a wish… 

Only this year I had "sweet 16" on my cake… and I didn't wish to meet Cinderella at Disney World.
