"Stupid Wish"

Today Avery came home from Grandma's house with half a wishbone. She was so excited because she won the pull with Grandma. I asked her if she made a wish and she said, "Yes I did but I'm going to tell you my wish because I don't want it to come true anymore.

Me: "Oh, you don't have to tell me your wish."
Avery: "Yes, I'm going to because it is stupid anyway."
Me: "What do you mean? It can't be that bad."
Avery: "Yes it is bad. It's really stupid!"
Me: "Do you want it to come true?"
Avery: "NO! I don't want it to come true anymore! I'm too scared!"
Me: "What could you have possibly wished for that you no longer want to come true?"
Avery: "I wished that I could go into outer space. There! I'm glad I told you because now my wish will not come true. I'm too scared to go into outer space."

Then she picked up the wishbone and threw it in the garbage.
