Pretty Little Lies

The other night, I was doing the dishes and found myself singing this song from Pinocchio -- do you remember it?  So pretty and so sweet... and so full of ridiculousness. Here are the oh-so-pretty lyrics, for your grown-up cynical enjoyment.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you...

If your heart is in your dreams
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
 As dreamers do...

Fate is kind;
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of 
Their secret longing...

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.

Oh, Jiminy Cricket.  You told us such pretty little lies.  :)

And because I can't help myself, here is the great Louis Armstrong singing "When You Wish Upon a Star."  Because although the idea of wishing something into existence might be ludicrous, the beauty and magic of childhood dreams are not.  I hope 2012 is a year when many, many of your dreams come true :)
