And if you want to make your wish really long and specific to try and make it impossible to break, go ahead.
Okay, that's pretty much the premise. Shall we begin?

I wish it wouldn't snow.

So be it, but without snow the soil isn't irrigated and fertile in spring, so farmers can't grow anything.

I wish I had x-ray vision.

So be it, but your only going to see things that you wish you didn't want to see at some time or another.

I wish I had magic powers.

I wish that I could fastforward through weekends.

So be it, but then you'd never have a break from anything and would be an uproar as to why your wish came true.

I wish for a big stage.

So be it, but it's so big that you can't ever walk off.

I wish I could snap my fingers and make everything super toasty.

So be it, but then you'd never know the definition of breezy air on a really hot day.

I wish to stop being negative and positive at once, and be both at the same time.

Well, let you be, albeit the problem is that you sound as if you can perfectly define what is negative and what is positive part of your being but that's vague for, like Hamlet said, there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. So as your wish ensues from your mind, which is per se tricky, elaborate, bias, very often has an ax to grind, so to speak, is not reliable in terms of high truth, therefore your wish is not reliable either and is going to lead your astray from the road of truth and God and you are going to wander through the darkness.

I wish some guy scooped unto the heaven or vanished into thin air, at least.

So be it, but that would send him into the upper atmosphere, where pressure variations and other issues would kill him if the height didn't already.

I wish that I could draw anything I wanted perfectly.

So be it, but when you see on your picture the thing you wanted perfectly you'll cry ' no, no,no,Jesus, that's not what I longed for so desperately! Sorry, I made a muck of things!'

I wish she were here.
