Daily Prompt: Three Coins In The Fountain

Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true?


I probably threw coins in the first fountain I came across when I was a little girl, but because none of my wishes came true, I knew then it was a trick, a ploy to get me to throw away my hard-earned money (granted, I was not working then) and be hopeful for something that likely wouldn’t happen. Either that, or I probably wished such ambitious and impossible wishes – like getting that Star Wars X-wing fighter featured on the catalogs my aunts would send from California – Sears, I remember it now – and getting none of what I wanted at all. No X-wing fighter or Luke Skywalker doll, not even the Princess Leia one, or even when I took it down a notch, no Barbie doll either.

And when I wished for a skateboard, I got a pair of skates instead. And I didn’t even have much time to mope over the substitution, for my cousin took those skates, removed the wheels so he could use it for the DIY skateboard he made for himself after mine didn’t come in.

Guess I wasn’t the only one whose wishes made at that Chinese restaurant fountain didn’t come true…well, at least for him, partly.
