A. would *love* to be able to sing. Have you ever read the book Bastard out of Carolina, by Dorothy Allison? If you haven't, you should, but it's for grown-ups and it deals with some really painful, intense stuff, but it is one of my favorite books in the whole world. Anyway, the main character, a girl named Bone, describes her wish to be able to sing in the most beautiful, heart-breaking way, where you can just feel inside of you how badly she wants it. It's a most perfect, crushing description of want.
