This week's RevGalBlogPals Friday Five:
If you could dramatically change your physical appearance for 24 hours, what would you do?
Lose about 50 pounds and improve my posture from its usual bent-over bookworm form.
If you could live in another place for 24 hours where would you go?
Even though 24 hours isn't nearly enough...Empire, Michigan, in lovely Leelanau County.
You get to do somebody else's job for a day...
I'd like to be one of those professional gardeners who plant flower beds, flower boxes and such for commercial clients. Or -- I'd like to be a naturalist taking groups of enthused but clueless people on hikes in a natural area and opening their eyes to all the wonderful plants and animals there.
Spend the day with another person from anywhere in time and space...
This is a hard question to answer. I'd maybe pick my maternal grandmother and her sisters back in the 'teens, when they were living together and working as domestics in the Detroit area. They'd been more or less thrown out of their home and left to fend for themselves at very young ages by a stereotypical Evil Stepmother, but managed to live as independent young women for a few years. From old photos I've seen of them, they were a fun bunch.
BONUS ANSWER UPDATE! Since checking in this morning, I got to thinking about it, and -- how could I have forgotten this, after watching several marathon days of The Deadliest Catch? -- I'd like to hang out with Cap'n Sig of the Northwestern for a day. He's one cool customer. But I'd tell him he really needs to quit smoking.
A magical power is yours. Which one would you pick?
A great cocktail-party question. I have to pick invisibility. At the risk of sounding a little megalomaniacal, it might be fun, as a superhero, to be an invisible investigator/ righter of wrongs. And as a bonus, think of all the free event admissions and free flights!
