We are all used to the fact that our words are rarely taken literally. But perhaps if we always got exactly what we’re asking for, we’d choose our words carefully.
Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it ! And we have 20 proofs of that.
«When you order an icecream with cone»
«I asked for extra cheese on my burger»
«Asked the hubby to get me some ginger. This is some ginger»
«Asked grocery delivery for red pepper flakes to replace my expired ones»
«I got another mac and cheese burger. I might not survive»
This time I asked for «as much mac and cheese as you can without getting fired».
