I think a word was missing in the wish - so I'll enter it for you. Everyone has enough good poison to eat.

I wish that I could speak Spanish fluently.

You can speak Spanish fluently. Unfortunately, you are marooned in the middle of Mongolia; there very few people, and none of them speak Spanish.

I wish I didn't have to travel all the way to London to see the Tutankhamun exhibition.

You have to merely travel a quarter of that distance: unfortunately, it turns out that means the exhibition a warehouse down an off-road track somewhere in the fens, whereupon it takes even longer to get to.

I wish Patrick Weekes would write another Rogues of the Republic book.

He writes a new book, but in a fit of artistic pomp, uses a marker pen on sheaves of tree bark. He forbids duplicates, so there is only one copy. Since the book is made of quite delicate materials you have to join a years long waiting list to read it. Then when it is your turn you must at great expense travel to California and spend a few weeks to read it with a stern, white gloved custodian supervising you & turning the pages.

I wish I could lift 100 kg with one hand effortlessly.

You can lift precisely 100kg, as measured to fifteen decimal places, effortlessly. Any more or less and you need the usual amount of effort. You require a large team of scientists working to obtain anything of the perfect weight and conditions for this to be remotely useable.

I wish I didn't have a bloaty feeling in my stomach :(
