DP ~ Freaky Friday!


When I saw this Daily Prompt I had to abandon the post I was going to publish as this one was just too good to pass up!  For you see, I love to learn about other people’s experiences and what better way than to commit to a Freaky Friday and be someone else!  As in the TV show Wife Swap (which I would never do because it requires the 2 weeks away from my own family), the idea of exchanging places with another person for a day sounds delightful!

No, I”m not off my rocker, nor do I want to leave my blessed life.  But to see myself through someone else’s eyes and to witness the changes that would invariably occur, well to me, it’s a win-win situation!

But with whom would I want to exchange places?  Would it be with my hubby so that I understand being a man better and he can understand me?  Or would it be with one of my sons so I can experience what it’s like having me for a Mom ~ and he could take a look into what it’s like to parent?  Perhaps being a rockstar for a day would be fun ~ singing on stage is something I’ve always dreamed of doing, but I don’t have the talented voice to attempt such a grand feat!   Or maybe being a historical figure (because this is using our imagination) and being Joan of Ark or Mary, the Mother of Jesus?  How about being one of my parents?  Being my Mom or being my Dad and understanding all of the ups and downs in their lives, but from their perspectives?

Golly, this is a whopper of a decision ~ I think I’ll just play that age-old game above

Tables turned ~ what do you want me to learn about you? 

What would you expect to learn about me?

Shine On!
