Wishbone by NaBHaN Wishbone by NaBHaN
A wish upon a wish

----

Okay, turns out a lot of you don't know what a 'wishbone' is (I assumed everyone knew), here's some clarification:

"A forked bone (the furcula) between the neck and breast of a bird. According to a popular custom, this bone from a cooked bird is broken by two people, with the holder of the longer portion being entitled to make a wish"

Hope that helped explain this piece.

here in greece we also have this tradition, but more specifically, we break the wishbone in order to predict if a pregnant woman we know will have a boy or a girl!
i never expected that other cultures would practice it too!

Genie: Oh look! A wishbone. *picks it up and turns to random guy* Here, let's see who wins.

Growing up with three siblings you had to learn how to pick the winning side quickly and have it be your turn to pull the wishbone if you ever wanted to win the wish. Same with Christmas crackers.

I remember one time my sister and I tried to pull apart the wishbone. It split right down the middle when this happened. I was so shocked!

Maybe each time, she wishes for more wishes and they manifest as more wishbones.
