I have ants in my pants because I hope The 3 Wise Men bring me a divorced George Clooney wrapped in a red ribbon. However, I wish I had been a better person in 2017 because it´s highly likely that they aren´t going to give me anything.
- I hope + present tense= a DESIRE
- I wish I had been (wish + past perfect) = a REGRET
In recent years, I have received some very bizarre presents!
