Question of the Week #258

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.

  1. My answer is nonconformist in relation to the posing of the question but it’s something I’ve given a lot of thought to over the years.
    I would like to be a man, for a month or so. I don’t care about beauty or age or any of that.
    If I was a man I would have the height and strength to take a shot at life as the long distance truck driver I’ve always dreamed of being. It would be a piece of cake to chain up on snowy, icy mountain passes and manhandle sticky doors and unstable loads along the way to that far off destination. I could walk into a truck stop with nary a second glance.
    I think I might need more than a month. Seriously.

  2. Sorry you’ve had a bad week! Hope it gets better!

    I have to agree with you. At first I thought maybe someone very beautiful, but then I thought that I can barely handle the attention I get being my level of beautiful right now LOL

  3. I would like to spend a day as a white person so that I can walk into a pub and not be the only brown person there causing heads to turn. Or not be interrogated and asked by everyone I meet “where do you come from?” even though in a multicultural society of Australia, everyone comes from somewhere! unless you’re an Indigenous Australian but the whites don’t get asked. I would like to be invisible and blend in. Don’t look at me and just leave me alone please 🙂
