So I was just noticing that I always close my eyes when I make a wish. I'm a big wish-maker I suppose, whether it's throwing change in fountains, blowing out candles, reading chain emails*, going through tunnels, or just whenever. I always close my eyes. Is that like a rule of wish-making? Does it make it more likely to happen? If I squeeze my eyes more tightly shut does that make it even more likely?
*Maybe this is two confessions but I totally make a wish when an email forward tells me to, even though I don't believe them or forward them. Always.
