Three Simple Requests
by Adam English, Outsider Club:
Once upon a time, I had the audacity to stretch the limits of what was possible. I grasped for what was just out of reach.
I even realized over time that what I wanted wasn’t exactly what I’d get…
The woefully underpowered BB gun was a bittersweet victory, one that took years to come to fruition; and the remote-controlled helicopter never materialized.
My parents’ foresight of future medical bills trumped all, but it never stopped my wildly ambitious Christmas wish lists. Over the years, I have stopped wishing for anything that wasn’t practical or modest.
Looking back, I can’t help but feel something was lost.
