I’ve found that sometimes, when I make a wish on an eyelash, it won’t fly away (no matter how hard I blow).
I used to wonder about this. I believe I know the reason why.
An eyelash is a magical thing, being able to carry the burden of making a wish come true. However, an eyelash is such a small thing…it can only carry so much. Those that don’t blow away have been overburdened by your wish, and can’t carry it because it’s so heavy.
So, next time you have a big wish, wait till you have a collection of eyelashes, and wish on all of them at once. :) Don’t overburden the little ones.
