Friday Five: 24 Hours

REVHROD at RevGalBlogPals Writes:
Yesterday I had the 24 hour flu. I had
been told by the people who had it first that it really was a
twenty-four hour bug. And so while I dealt with all theblech of the flu, I kept reminding myself that morning would come and I would feel a lot better.

This is certainly a strange way to start out a Friday Five but it made me
think about what I might like to do if I knew it would only last for 24
hours. There are no reality boundaries to these imaginings. So here are
the five things for you to consider...

1. If you could dramatically change your physical appearance for 24 hours,
what would you do?

This is so easy, it's not even fair! I would be TALL!! But I think I would be tall and male. As long as I knew it wouldn't last forever, I would be interested to see what that would be like.

2. If you could live in another place for 24 hours where would you go?

Only 24 hours...hmmm. Antarctica. At the south pole station, or whatever they call it.

3. You get to do somebody else's job for a day...

I wouldn't mind being a college professor for a day. I don't think that
is where I am headed in real life, but I am interested to see if it is
as easy as I think it is.

4. Spend the day with another person from anywhere in time and space...

I am not much for historical figures, although I love history. I am going to take space as referring to more then just physical space: I would want to spend a day with Aslan, the Aslan of "Prince Caspian" though, since I think he has more depth at that
point, and seems a little less self-righteous then in "The Lion, The
Witch and The Wardrobe", and we would spend the day together in the
true Narnia,from the Last Battle. OK, I admit it, I am a total nerd!

5. A magical power is yours. Which one would you pick?

If the first was the easiest, that makes this the hardest...the thing is,
what's the use of a magical power if it can't help other people? I
don't really want to be flying all over, rescuing people from burning
buildings, that's what firefighters are for, and in my opinion they do
a better job then I could. And you might think I should want to heal
people, but really, I think often people are healed to well and to
often. Why does everyone insist on prolonging the inevitable? I mean, I
think doctors already have it covered as far as the broken bones and
stuff.Hmmm, still thinking...

This is completely made up, but
I would want a super power that allowed me to give people the gifts of
reason and serenity. Then I would go around to all the leaders of the
world, police officers and ornery professors. I think the world would
be a much better place!

So, there is my Friday Five contribution! I hope you liked it, and check out the href="">RevGal site for other peoples!

I never got around to this yesterday, although I thought about it and had weird dreams because of that (or maybe because I made the coffee too strong....) Good play! You should put a comment on RGBP!

Wonderful play. And if your Aslan answers make you a nerd, well I just don't see it at all. ;-)

Talk about your nerds! I'm a total one because I didn't realize your tres distingue blog has been active for some time. Now I have ahead of me the wonderful chore of reading all the posts I have missed.

I finally watched the Leslie Gore clip of "You Don't Own Me." Wouldn't that be a great number for a little songstress I know to do on talent sharing night at Family Camp? I wonder where she could get some backup singers.
