I made a wish.
Silly, I know. But I made it anyway, with the sort of fake cavalier attitude you use to convince yourself you don't mean it. When deep down, you know you do.
And so, I wished. My head pounding in pain with every thought, I bade whatever gods that might be listening to hear my plea. "Please," I begged. "Please. Hear my most ardent, fervent wish."
And do you know what? They listened. They heard. They granted my wish.
As I stood there with my coffee and croissant, in the middle of The Plateau, it occurred to me that I really should have asked for more.
