Man: Look! It's meteor!
Woman: Come on! Make a wish quickly!
Woman: I wish the housing price would drop a little, and we could own a house as soon as possible!
Meteor: I am sorry! This wish is too hard to realise.

Man: Look! A shooting star!
Woman: Hurry up! Let's make a wish together.
Man and woman: We wish the housing price to fall, and God bless us that we can afford to buy our own house asap.
Star: Sorry, but this wish is far away from realizing!

a shooting star is not the same thing as a comet

thats obviously passing through space, not burning up in our atmosphere

you make wishes on shooting stars, not on comets

comets have time to reply, shooting stars burn up in a few seconds in our atmosphere

comets dont disappear, they travel around space, and you dont wish on the same comet everytime u see it, nor do u wish on it everytime you look up and see it

Man and Woman: Please, make the housing prices lower and lower and may we have our own house as soon as possible!
Shooting star: Excuse me, but it's too hard for me to realize your wish!

P.S: Sorry, Seneca. Again, I posted my entry a little bit too late.

Hi seneca,

Thanks again for grouping the entries together.

Your numbers do not all agree with the actual posts, though.  Posts #6 and #9 are not entries.  Or maybe we can just use your numbers for judging purpose?
