    1. Lucky Smoke. Smoking is bad for you. Don’t do it. But if you do, flip the first smoke in your pack upside down and don’t smoke it until last. When you do, you have the whole cig to think up a wish. Maybe wish that you won’t get lung cancer.

    2. Star. Star wishing is largely a matter of opinion. Some say you can wish on any star, some say only the North Star, and others say only shooting stars. I say, as long as it’s not really a planet—make your wish on any old star you like.

    3. Wishing wells. Is there a difference between a Wishing Well and a regular well? I find wells a little unnerving anyway, so I’m not likely to wish on one. But if you see a well you like, by all means, throw a coin in and make a wish.

    4. The Moon. You can’t wish on the moon any time, but if it’s full (or if it’s your birthday), wish on it when it’s at its highest point.

    5. 11:11. If you catch a digital clock at 11:11 (a.m. is better, because military time) you may make one wish any time during that minute. Remember, you’re not supposed to watch greedily for it—it’s only if you catch it on accident.

    6. Ladybugs. If a ladybug lands on you—a real one, not those biting orange monstrosities—make your wish and say “Ladybug Ladybug, fly away home. Your house is on fire and your children are gone.” If she flies away, you get your wish. Be sure to express your condolences to the Ladybug on her loss.

    7. Stones. Plenty of people keep a Wishing Stone in their pocket. It can be one you found on a beach, or got for a gift, or something native to your state (Michiganders like me love Petoskey stones). Rub the flat side of the stone with your thumb and make a wish whenever you need to.

    8. Fountains. These don’t seem wish-appropriate since fountains are man-made. But something about all that rushing water inspires people to toss a coin in and wish. Some say the bigger the denomination of coin, the better the wish.
