Jennospot 121 Lucky Shootin' Stars
It's real lucky when yew see a shootin' star, 'cos that means yew c'n make a wish. Yew c'n do it jus' loike in the song "When You Wish Upon a Star". It's important ter remember that, jus' loike wiv fairy godmovvers, yew're only allowed three wishes per noight, 'cos yew mustn't be greedy. Yew gotta leave a few wishes fer ovver people.
Moi bruvver, Braces, reckons as 'ow all that ain't no more'n mushy fairytale stuff. 'Ee reckons as 'ow the only real shooting stars are them cowboys in the films, loike Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, wot they show once a month in the Parish Hall. Yeah, well Oi loike them an' all, 'specially when they vault on ter their super 'orses, ter go an' shoot up them bad guys in the black 'ats. Trouble is, moi bruvver's a bit loike Peter, wot ain't got no romance in 'is soul. An' that's why 'ee don't believe much in wishes.
Still an' all, Oi sometimes catch Peter outside on a clear noight a-starin' up at the sky, an' when Oi ask 'im wot 'ee's a-starin' at, 'ee jus' says as 'ow 'ee's only lookin'. Oi reckon wot 'ee's really doin' is makin' a wish, all secret loike, jus' fer 'imself…
Any'ow, yew gotta keep yer wishes secret, at least until they 'appen, 'cos if'n yew don't, then they won't come true. An' even if'n they do, it's jus' by 'appenstance. Yew don't 'ave ter believe me if'n yew don't want; but if'n yew want yer wishes ter work, yew mustn't tell nobody; not even yer best friend.
An' that ain't all. There's somefink else wot's real important. It ain't no good jus' wishin', even if'n yew see a thousand o' them shootin' stars, 'cos if'n yew jus’ make a wish, an' then wait fer the stars ter do ev'ryfink else ter make it come true, it ain't likely ter work. No, yew gotta do yer best ter 'elp makin' yer wish work out. Take it from me…
Last noight Oi saw some shootin' stars, an' Oi made three wishes. Oi ain't tellin' yew wot the first one is, not yet, any'ow; okay? When it comes true, Oi'll let yew know
The second wish is fer moi free e-books, "Jenno's Widdlin'ton", "Jenno's Widdlin'ton II", “Just Jenno” an’ “Jenno’s Facebook”: (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/128813 , http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/166979 http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/243552 an’ http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/264791)
Moi third wish is fer Peter St John's website: (http://www.peterstjohn.net/). Cripes, wouldn't 'ee laugh if'n 'ee knew wot it were…
They come wiv a good wish fer yew, an’ wiv luv from Jenno.
