Would you want to spend a week as someone of the opposite sex? Someone very old? Very beautiful? Very ugly? Or severely handicapped? If so, which one would most intrigue you?
Can I just say no? To all of these… no. It just seems exhausting to spend time as someone who isn’t me. Besides, by asking this, one implies that I’m not already very beautiful or very ugly. Pretty judgmental if you ask me.
Sorry… I’ve had a kind of crap week. The kind where I’m really tired of dealing with people in general. I’m having a hard enough time being me right now. I certainly don’t want to entertain the notion of being someone completely different.
But I’d still love to hear how you would answer this question. Let me know down in the comments.
