You know those conversations you had when you're a kid, where you asked the other kid lots of questions about their favourite things and what they wanted to be when they grow up? Those ones that you truly believed got you to the very heart of what someone was really like?
I only ever cared about the answer to two of them. One was 'What's your favourite chocolate?' because if the answer was Galaxy, I'd found myself a soulmate. The other was 'If you had three wishes, what would they be?'
As I've grown older, I've realised I only have one wish - to be happy. How I achieve that isn't very important, and I have no idea what's likely to make me happy and what isn't, until it happens. I used to wish for book deals and cars and holidays and pay rises and everything else you can think of - but I've learned that these things aren't important. What matters is whether or not they make you happy.
However, that answer to the 'Three Wishes' question is very boring! My fun answer is:
1. To be able to read, understand and speak any language I needed instantly.
2. To be a professional novelist and travel writer.
3. To always have exactly a million euros in the bank, no matter how much of it I take out :) Come on! I'm not made of stone. . .
What about you guys? What are your three wishes? And while we're at it, what's your favourite chocolate?
