*This is part of the A to Z challenge for April.
Looking at the sky and catching a glimpse of a falling star
Throwing a penny in a fountain or a well
Blowing out the candles on a birthday cake
Holding a dandelion puff and blowing the seeds into the wind
Closing eyes and nodding as Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie did
Taking a fallen eyelash from just below the eye and blowing it away
Buying a lottery ticket
Do any of these things really make our wishes come true?
