Careful What You Wish For


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements 😉

What if every lie you told last week came true this week?

  1. That's a big "What if." Now I have to go back and see what lies I told last week. I hope they weren't too terrible! :-)

  2. That would not be good...my hubby would know he has money in his account and would spend it. he would also know where I hid the chocolates

    1. Well, if you said there were no chocolates and then hid them, then you would have no chocolates. And that's a tragedy.

  3. I can't remember what lies I told last week. I wonder if that's good or bad.

    1. Either you're a pathological liar, or you didn't lie much at all...

  5. Well, I'd like to think that I didn't lie last week. But that would probably be a lie. I imagine the character this happened to would get into an almighty mess.

  7. I don't remember telling any lies last week. Although I'd be so upset that I missed the opportunity to tell lies that I want to be true.

  8. I don't really lie so nothing should happen from this past week :)

  9. I think the only lie I might have said last week (that I can remember at least LOL) was that I told my hubby that I was looking at help wanted job sites last week when actually I was binge watching on NetFlix. So if the lie came true this week, then I would be job hunting, which wouldn't be a bad thing :)

  10. YIKES!!! HAHA....I know some people would be in some serious do do! haha....I don't normally tell lies. I live with enough of that going around me and some do enough for us all. I can't even think of a stretched truth I might have told last week other than when asked at a register how I was and I said AWESOME! So if that came true, I would welcome it.

  11. I'm more along the lines of 'too much information' truth. ~grin~ But I like where this question takes my imagination. Well done!

  12. I'm not in the habit of lying but I guess I wish I was if they had the potential to come true!

    1. I guess you'd be surprised if there was a lie then, eh?

  13. I can't even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday. lol I don't think I told any whoppers last week. Maybe to myself that I was gonna finish cleaning the deck. It would be good if that one came true, though. lol
