Looking back, I remember some of the greatest things happened in childhood while I was sleeping.
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy all visited me while I was fast asleep. It was disappointing when I discovered all three were my parents, but I never caught them in act.
The other day, I was remembering just how great it was to wake up and find something magical had happened during the nighttime hours. Although, I may not wish for a quarter under my pillow (let me reconsider being unemployed), I'd still love to wake up and have that same childhood feeling.
After quick consideration, I wish the following fairies would visit me during the night:
Fridge Fairy: I don't have a standard size fridge because I live in a small 1949 Cape. One trip to the grocery store for 2 is all my fridge can handle. If I don't clear it out each week, which I never do, I am continually cramming items in. My fridge becomes a clown car and the forgotten items in the back of the fridge become my own personal science project.
Laundry Fairy: There actually is a Laundry Fairy, but she/he doesn't do what I want. Instead he/she increases the amount of laundry I need to do in the morning. Basically, the Laundry Fairy Sucks.
Sock Fairy: For some reason, the Sock Fairy has an arch nemisis that steals one sock from almost every pair I own. I know I may not notice everything, but seriously where the hell do they all go? The Sock Fairy would save me the time and energy hunting down the strays.
Other fairies I wish would visit me while sleeping that need no explanation:
The I Never Ache Fairy from working out.
The Calorie Eraser Fairy
The No Hangover Fairy for the champagne I have the night before. Champagne always gives me a slight headache (assume it's the sugar) and I don't plan on giving it up.
There are so many others, but these are the ones I'd love to have visit me.
