Don’t Cross Your Eyes!

imagesCAIMTKCHDaily Prompt: Trading Places

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a member of the opposite sex for a day? What do you think life would be like?

There is value in a man thinking what it would be like to be in a woman’s place and vice versa, but only as far as empathetic thinking. A person who does that or suggest that for a whole day is weird; likely having identity issues themselves. If you want to do that kind of thing for a day, go ahead and do it, just don’t tell me about it.

I’m wondering if such an exercise is like when you’re a kid and you cross your eyes. Some adult or teacher will warn, “If you do that too much your eyes will stay that way.”

Now that I think about it, there was this guy I worked with; a nice guy, a little weird, but nice. His name was Robert. He dressed as Marie Antoinette for some costume party one day. He walked around all night carrying a head with a bouffant hairdo under his arm. He went around telling people, “She eats cake if you feed it to her.“ (I don’t know what that has to do with anything, but I just had to mention it.) He changed his name to Roberta and never dressed as a man again.

I take that back, the next year he dressed as Louis XVI, but just for one night. Wait now, it may have been the other way around. Nevertheless, it had to do with the French.

Oh crap! I did it. Now my eyes are stuck.

  1. I’ve often ask people what they would do if they woke up one morning and they were the opposite sex. A very good looking opposite sex! Every person I ask, would run to the doctor immediately and some of then would go to a Voo Doo priest to get the mojo removed!

Blather away, if you like.
