A discontinued Ginsters sandwich.(Double cheese and crack I believe)
A new Harry Potter novel written by JK Rowling herself and not co written by awful fanfiction Wannabees.
The elixir of life.
A comfortable bike seat.
An chance to play chess with the Grim Reaper aka Paddington Bear. I fancy my chances.

A weekend off

IsABajan · 15/09/2022 16:21

Free liposuction and nip and tuck
A winning lottery ticket
To see my Nan and best friend again (they have both died so that would totally be worth it)

JesusInTheCabbageVan · 15/09/2022 16:22

A grovelling apology from my NDNs for being such twats.

TooMuchToDoTooLittleInclination · 15/09/2022 16:22

To see loved ones that have died.

does that answer both your questions?!

PuttingDownRoots · 15/09/2022 16:22

A free trolley dash around the lego shop

A night to myself with no kids.

Tbh, I'm thinking about going just for that.

SweetFannyAdamsDog · 15/09/2022 16:23

a drink at the fountain of youth
world peace
my dad to be alive again
to be miraculously thin with no further effort other than the 9 hour queue
for a magic spell to make everyone I love healthy and happy

A million quid.

Although I'm not sure i could hold a wee in for 9 hours TBH.

3rdOfHisNameBreakerOfPens · 15/09/2022 16:24

@IsABajan I feel you might need to specify the amount of winnings in your lottery ticket, tighten that loophole and I will add it to my list.

To see my kids, if there'd been a pandemic and it was my first chance for two years.

I'm not sure I could hold it either. Think I'd need to take a she wee.

@3rdOfHisNameBreakerOfPens yes very good idea actually. I'd say £15 million would see me right lol

Carrieonmywaywardsun · 15/09/2022 16:26

Type O Negative revival concert tickets

A magical potion like botox that lasts forever. Every 6 weeks is too often. Maybe throw in lifelong acrylic nails too so I can stop going every 2 weeks.

BitOutOfPractice · 15/09/2022 16:27

Snog Bryan Ferry. Or just stroke his face and tell him of my undying love.

or a chat with my dad.

Rabbitheadlights · 15/09/2022 16:28

Possibly a limb, life saving treatment, a winning lottery ticket £100,000+ , a chance to speak with my deceased mum. Vague but anything my children needed (emphasise NEEDED)

Aside from that absolutely nothing!!

You can leave the lying in state queue for the toilet, you get a wristband. They've brought in portaloos especially.

JesusMaryAndJosephAndTheWeeDon · 15/09/2022 16:29

I'm struggling to think of anything much that is actually possible.

The queue to get into the Vatican was bad enough. I wasn't there to see the pope, it was for the art and architecture but we did happen to see him.

OopsAnotherOne · 15/09/2022 16:29

To see my dog again, who passed a few weeks ago. Other than that I literally can't think of anything I'd queue 9 hours for.

LaraMargot · 15/09/2022 16:29

We queued overnight at Tuolome meadows, about 10 hours to get permits to do the John Muir trail in California. It was jolly cold but we saw lots of shooting stars.

JohnsShirt · 15/09/2022 16:31

Harry Styles tickets

gnilliwdog · 15/09/2022 16:36

I'm cheap. Anything to the value of a thousand pounds and upwards I would do it. Or to escape a disaster, obviously.

10HailMarys · 15/09/2022 16:42

Any amount of money greater than nine hours' salary, to be honest. If I've got a book, headphones, snacks and a folding chair, nine hours is no bother really.

pantsofshame · 15/09/2022 16:43

A week's holiday in the sun that neither includes my MIL nor months of guilt tripping comments/tears about how this might be the last year she's well enough to travel/she just wants to sit in the sun with DH one last time etc. (as background- she is not that old, has no major medical problems, goes on several holidays a year with friends and has been making these 'last chance' claims for nearly 20 years).

Snog my first love ❤️
