King’s Wishes

Dear Happy Subject,

I’ve been accumulating little “wants” for some time now, and it’s grown to such a level that I need a place to dump them all in. This is the result of that “dumping.” This has nothing to do with the fact that my birthday’s coming (August, just in case you want to know), and nothing to do with the fact that you feel a certain sense of foreboding when you visited this page. The desperation oozing from the words written here is just a figment of your own, very active imagination.

Anyway, here’s the list.

  1. Coin purse.
  2. Office hygiene pouch. Otherwise known as a kikay pouch. For those important bathroom rituals we cannot live without.
  3. Yoga mat.
  4. Gym gloves, the ones you need to put on so that your palms won’t smell like rust after lifting those rusty dumbbells.
  5. Dumbbells.
  6. Gym shorts. [Pledged.]
  7. Adidas gym shirts.
  8. Fine, any gym shirt.
  9. Arm strap for my iPod Touch for my gym sessions.
  10. Screen protector for my iPod Touch. [Pledged.]
  11. Size 9 rubber shoes. (There goes my foot size.)
  12. Leather shoes. [I just need one more.]
  13. Leather shoes. (Because I need two.)
  14. Chucks.
  15. A new mouse. Preferably without any wires.
  16. Blank DVDs. Carts of them. [Pledged.]
  17. Lots of socks.
  18. Lots of Bench underwear. The farther the colors are from white, the better. I’m a 30. (And there goes my waistline.)
  19. Shorts. I don’t know what they’re called, but I’m referring to shorts of the wear-outside-and-be-decent variety, rather than the stay-inside-and-scratch-inappropriately variety.
  20. Springfield anything. Springfield is the best clothing store in the world.
  21. Long sleeves for work. (Slim-fit works best.)
  22. Long sleeves for gimmicks.
  23. Clinique Happy for Men. Or Issey Miyake. Or any scent that smells fresh. Not fishy fresh, but flowers fresh.
  24. Any of the following books: The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, The Bro Code by Barney Stinson, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, or any book documenting the rise/fall of a corporation (think “From Good to Great” by Jim Collins).
  25. Any board game from Hobbes and Landes, except the following: chess, checkers, Chinese checkers, backgammon, Snakes & Ladders, Games of the Generals, or any game that you and I might have encountered endlessly during the 25 years I’ve spent in this Earth.

25 wishes for 25 years. Feel free to pledge so that I can scratch the item accordingly. It’s like a bridal registry, only there’s one of me, and there’s no reception anywhere. Or nice wedding photographs.

Thanking people for their generosity,
The Sunbaked King
