My fill-in responses are underscored.
1. I always make a wish when I am getting ready to blow out candles on my birthday cake. I don't make a lot of wishes like this anymore. We usually skip the cake, and choose another type of dessert.
2. Before company comes, I straighten up the house a bit.
3. I would live without getting Alzheimer's if possible. This is a concern for me, because my Mom was diagnosed with late onset Alzheimer's just a few years ago.
4. I speak English, but wish I could speak Spanish fluently. I took Spanish in high school and a little in college, but did not ever become fluent in it, and after so many years of not using it, I just remember a few words and phrases.
