The dikes hold up just great. The river, however, rises to unpredicted and unprecedented heights.
I'm very happy for you and your fellow Fargoinians. Floods just scare the hell out of me.
I wish that everyone, everywhere, had enough to eat on a daily basis.
Dikes. Sounds like dykes, so politically incorrect. Although I know some who could hold back the floods or anything else you would like them to address for you.
Floods scare me, too. I will take tornadoes and fires over a flood any day. Here and gone, as opposed to sitting and rotting -- like post-Katrina/Rita/Ike. *shudder*
OK, back to your wish. A very nice wish, and hard to corrupt... but OK. Everyone has more than enough to eat, and we all end up like the citizens on the mother ship in "WALL-e" -- so obese and lazy we have to have our own personal hover-lounges to get around, with our supersized snacks and drinks. Sounds good, except that no work gets done,ever, and the sheer weight of all the people on Earth shifts the axis of the planet, and we all freeze or fry to death.
I wish my boss would grow a brain, or some balls, or a spine. Take your pick. Any or all would help.
