Be Careful What You Wish For

Oh, for fuck’s sake.
Why does the plankton status invite quite so many cliches, while we’re on the subject of cliches (cf. yesterday’s Better to Be Alone)? And Be Careful What You Wish For is right up there with all the other inanities we have to contend with, that people so freely and patronisingly bestow upon us.
Just for the record, I so do NOT intend to be careful what I wish for. Wishing’s a riot. The whole point of wishing, I would have thought, was not having anything to do with fricking caution; wishing is the ENEMY of the fucking stuff. Wishing has got to be more than the way forward; it’s fucking SURVIVAL.
In real life there is so much caution we have to go in for that when it comes to wishing, I ain’t going to be doing anything other than throwing caution to the goddamn wind, to storms, hurricanes, cyclones, twisters, and every other variation of air blowing exceeding hard that you can think of.
As far as wishing goes, anyone – and planktons especially – are entitled to conjure up any amount of outlandish wishes they choose, and to HELL with caution.
Tell a plankton to be careful what she wishes for and she should tell you to fuck right off, you smug twat: were YOU careful with what you wished for? If you weren’t then what the hell right do you have telling her to embrace namby-pamby caution, and if you were, then more fool you!
Wishing is the plankton’s consolation and solace and hope and nigh-on whole existence for fuck’s sake. And wishing’s FUN.
Rise up all ye planktons and wish till you are blue in the face! Don’t take no more shit from people who tell you to BCWYWF. That’s not the way to go through life! Avoid anyone who shirks wishing. They are tedious, priggish killjoys.
Wish away all of you! I certainly am – and at this point in my blog, I guess you have a fair idea of what for (namely Long Shot and/or Smidgen).
Jesus, it’s the one thing we can all do in the privacy of our own heads without harming anyone and, though we may have to pay for it with a tuppence of disappointment occasionally, ’tis otherwise completely FREE.
