Today, I don't want to me. I want to be somebody else.
Just for today.
(OK, fine. Maybe there are some other days when this idea appeals too.)
But especially today.
If you could be somebody else - past or present - just for a day, who would you be? Why?
I would want to be my daughter--as crazy as it sounds that kid has something about her that totally inspires me. She is smart, funny, charismatic and talented in ways I can only dream of. I want to know what it feels like to be that kind of person even for just one day.
And like you--there are plenty of days when I want to be someone else.

I think today I would like to be Dr Seuss, making up names for pink trees with purple feathers on them. That sounds like a nice way to spend a day. Better than writing about heartburn medication, at any rate. . . .

I'm gonna go with Bruno Mars. Mostly so I can say I came up with the Lazy Song. :)

I'm going to say pink. Her life seems sweet, but I guess the grass is always greener through someone else's eyes anyways. xo

Can I be one of my dogs??? They got it made, Laying around waiting for me to come home and scratch their ears and butt. I wish someone would scratch my butt. No wait, that came out wrong...

I would like to be someone who lived back in the colonial days...anyone, just so for one day I could say I know what it felt like to not have modern things like we do today such as A/C and electricity and phones and internet. Just for one day I'd like to go back and live that, and dress like that.

I would like to be someone who has a really crappy life, so I could truly appreciate all of the good things in mine and figure out how to help all of the people with really crappy lives.

Sometimes I want to be my younger self. It was easier to be a kid. How I miss those times, when my biggest worry was my (undone)homework.

I agree. I would be a teen again. Back when Everything was soooooo important. When my passions were my goals no just dreams!

For just one day...I'd like to be a mom who actually has her shit together! Not be halfway somewhere an discover we have left everything we needed, at home! Dammit!

That is a great picture! Hmm, that's a tough one. It would be cool to be someone else but know that you're you. I think I'd like to be someone who lived long ago. 1800's maybe. I've always been interested in "olden times."

Megan, are those boobies???
I'm with Elftea. I want to be someone who has their shit together, and maybe has some cash. LOL My marbles are long gone.
