Be Careful What You Wish For

If you turn on your television set and attempt to watch a program you’ll be bombarded with commercials. There are an enormous amount of them. Many have catchy jingles and are trying to invoke some sort of change, or hope that if you see it enough times it will fill a void deep inside you, making you feel you have to buy their product. They’re the grown up equivalent of your mother telling you to clean your room. Hear it enough times and you will do it.

One true classic, and my personal favorite, is by Disney. The chorus sings “When You Wish Upon A Star” as Cinderella waves her magic wand and stars encircle her. Starting from childhood, people begin wishing for the strangest things, and as we get older they just get a little stranger.

However, how many times have you seen on T.V. those Lotto winners in far more trouble now than when they were just your average Joe’s and Jane’s?
