All my spoons are in all the right places, if you know what I'm talkin' about...
And I’m like, hey y’all. What the crap? Like I saw this one girl get her whole room remodeled on some HG show and, and some girl got some ridiculous Disney experience from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The *Make a Wish Foundation*??? Really?
I guess this is weird to me for two reasons:
One reason is that I have Lupus, so associating it with the MaWF seems odd to me because my perception of the illness is distorted by being so affected by it. In other words my brain is thinking, “psh, well I’m just over here dealing with it and working my butt off to do so, why is everyone freaking out over this random girl’s Discoid Lupus with no organ involvement??” That would be my jaded opinion.
The second reason is that I’m secretly insanely jealous and am like, “UH EXCUSE ME HGTV COULD YOU PLEASE COME GIVE ME THINGS, OTHER PEOPLE HAVE LUPUS YOU KNOW.”
But this got me thinking, and I realized the reason that people in adulthood don’t qualify for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.
It’s because of shit like this: If I were approached by the Make-A-Wish people right now and they were like, “oh we’re so sorry about your Lupus and shit, what’s your wish? We will make it come true!”
I’d have to answer with something so adult-ish and depressing like, “Oh if you could just take whatever money you were going to spend on something cool and just put it towards my student loans please?” Or, “Well, no thanks on the Disney trip but I would really love a weekend at the spa.”
Like, kids ask for cool stuff that makes for inspiring stories and heartwarming photo-ops. Adults, we have such depressing needs.
