I wish I didn’t have any homework . . .

Where’s my homework gone?

Yey! That means I don’t have to do any homework!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Feeding my dog takes such a long time. I wish there was a quicker way of doing it . . . Oh my gosh, how did that just happen?

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Time for tea, and I have — vegetables. I hate vegetables!

Hang on: Maybe I can make them disappear. I wish I had no vegetables.

Wow! My vegetables actually disappeared! It really works!

Mom, I finished my vegetables.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Oh, I have to unpack my bag. I can’t be bothered . . . Hang on. Maybe my super powers will work again: I wish that I can unpack my bag.

It really works. Maybe my superpowers will last forever. Now that would be cool.

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

I can’t be bothered to put toothpaste on my brush . . . Oh yes, I have superpowers.

“I wish I could put toothpaste on my brush.”

Wow, it works again. Yey!

.     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Time for bed . . . Wait a minute: I forgot to make my bed this morning. Oh, it’s fine — I’ve got my superpowers.

“I wish my bed could be made.”

Hang on. Why isn’t it working?

“I wish my bed was made.”


But what happened to my superpowers?

I guess I have to make it myself.
