It is for God to mess with death, not the rest of us. As much as I'd love to have a few more words with my former high school crush, I know bringing her back would only make things worse. For starters, her family would have to refund the life insurance money. Second, the state would refuse to let her have custody of her daughter again. Third, unless I could also cure her of her heroin addiction, she'd just kill herself again right away anyway. Fourth, it wouldn't take long before I got blamed for all the mess she'd inevitably cause. Fifth, her family would hate me all over again, as if they needed a reason.
I'd instead wish an epiphany on my other former high school crush, that she may come to her sense and stop wasting her life drinking and treating men like disposable goods. And to stop blaming God and marriage for her parents being so selfish. I probably would not ever be able to marry her; but I could at the very least make her less bitter - and break down the walls of pride that prevent her from so much as talking to me. She knows I care, but also knows that I will not approve of her every life decision. And for that, she treats me like I'm nothing to her. The modern fallacy about love is part of her accursed lot. I'd erase that - and similar delusions - in thousands of others.
That would be a far better use of that stupid monkey paw than trying to screw with death.0
