|Rocks can grant wishes|
IF they're from space.
What’s this business of making a wish when you see a shooting star? I don’t understand what that’s all about. Why do people do this? Whenever I see some kids wishing on a shooting star I want to ask them “What the hell are you little idiots thinking?” Obviously I don’t because that’s mean and I’ve gotten in trouble for it in the past. -- Wendy from Santa Clara, California
Kids like to wish on shooting stars because Jiminy Cricket made it popular back in 1940 film “Pinocchio.” He sang “When You Wish Upon A Star” which informed people that if they wish on stars they can make wooden dolls into human beings. The reason adults wish on shooting stars is because when you see a shooting star there’s no telling what’s on the surface of that star. For all you know there might be a telepathic alien from another galaxy that has magic powers. If you make a wish while looking dead at him, he may read your thoughts and make your dream come true. Sure it isn’t likely, but there’s always a chance and that’s the chance people take when they wish upon a star.
