Alicia's Favorite Things

Hecate and Bathory got me this lighter last summer at a headshop on Cape Cod. It's a hologram that changes from ET in the woods to a skull with a tongue, emerging from flames.
When I was in elementary school we were asked to write and draw three wishes.
Mine were as follows:

1. I wish that I had a secret land of my own.
2. I wish that my parents would never die.
3. I wish that I owned ET.

The lighter, in its own way, encapsulates all three.
One's wishes truly can come true by means of materialism!
