The silly part is that I had such a hard time writing this post. There is no one I would really want to be other than me (even just for a short time). I would not want to be a woman. Sorry, but the idea of something potentially entering me is just unappealing - men are gross. I would not want to be a celebrity. Putting up with the lack of privacy combined with the constant judgement just would not work for me. I thought about being Stephen Hawking - yes, I am that much of a geek - it would be nice to be that smart just for a bit but I would be afraid of seeing too much truth. I couldn't handle the truth. I could want to be a college student again but striking out often was hard enough the first time.
I guess if I had to be another, I would want to be a meditating Buddhist monk. The ability to just be alone with my thoughts for a week would be nice. I would not need anything fancy just a place to lay my head and a nice vista to enjoy. The peace, the tranquility. I think we have found a winner.
