Flip-Flop Friday on Saturday

weather: light rain
outside: 11.6°C
mood: avoidant
Friday Fun: June 14, 2007

1. If, for one day, you could flip-flop lives with any celebrity, who would it be and why?

I'd pick someone super wealthy. They don't have to be that famous, as long as they have scads and scads of money they don't deserve. I'd give as much of it away as I could to as many worthy causes as possible in the time that I have in their place.

I was thinking of a certain bleached blonde pencil-neck loser-and-a-half with Vicodin withdrawal dragged wailing and crying for her Mommy all the way back to the cushy section of jail. But that brought me to...

3. Is there anyone you would not want to flip-flop lives with for a day? Why?

... the exact same bleached blonde pencil-neck loser-and-a-half with Vicodin withdrawal dragged wailing and crying for her Mommy all the way back to the cushy section of jail.

I'm imagining it would feel empty, wretched and worthless as her. To be that unattractive and that talentless; to have nothing going for you except the wealth and social ties of your family; to have no other way of becoming a household name than to deliberately create media scandals about yourself, is absolutely no life worth living.

4. What is one aspect of your life you would like to flip-flop?

I really like the skin I have on the inside of my upper arm. It's smooth, soft, light and hairless. I wish I could exchange that skin with the rest of my body.

Do deities count as celebrities?

I don't know... do you consider the definition of "celebrities" to include humans only who either are alive now or at one time were alive?

I was thinking about that too--does the day have to be the same 24-hour period?

It would be interesting to flip-flop with a celebrity in the past or future. For example, Isaac Newton when the apple hit his head, or Archimedes when he realized his principle (both potentially apocryphal, of course).

And now I realize that sounds like Quantum Leap. XD

But to answer your question, I think the question was written to mean humans alive now.

Wow, don't hold back -- say what you really feel. :)

Not that I don't mostly agree with you, I guess but "empty, wretched, and worthless" and the rest feels kind of harsh.

I did say "I'm imagining it would". =)
