A friend of mine started dating a girl on whom I had a crush. Normally, I'd wish for all the luck in the world for him. But if that were to happen, I would never get to date her myself. Of course, wishing doesn't help anyone. So what would you wish for in this case?
So, just so everyone is clear, this is not an actual real situation. I went to the game tonight. Pedro Martinez was pitching for the Red Sox. I really wanted to see Pedro pitch a good game, but I also wanted my Mariners to win. Of course, wishing doesn't help anyone.
