Who we’d pick to take our place, in 6 words


Costco namtag Star Wars
My actual shelf with getting-ready stuff. The badge has since been retired. The Star Wars figures never will be.

It’s not easy to be me.

GAD GRAPHICIt’s hella fun, as the kids used to say. (Some kids. Somewhere.) So, when I shot out the prompt for this month’s 6 Words post (which actually went out in 2017, but it’s taken me a while to post), it wasn’t easy to come up with an answer.

Every month, I ask friends, bloggers, strangers and strange blogger friends a question that they will answer in exactly six words.

Ernest Hemingway inspired it when he asserted that any story could be told in six words. The prompt for this month: If you had to pick someone to be you for a day, who would you want it to be, and why?

Who would you pick?

This prompt came from Q4KIDZ, a wonderful website that provides daily prompts to get the conversation going with you and your kids. [check it out here and get your prompts directly by email or text.]

  1. This is fantastic! So many unique responses, I may have to say I like the person who’d be Donald Trump and resign. That would be kind of amazing. Ok, off my soapbox now. This was a hard, but fun prompt Eli!

  2. All great quotes~ I especially like the one at the end regarding empathy. Some people are just not equipped with it! I avoid those folks for the most part because they will never understand where I am coming from. Although there are some I can’t steer clear of because they are family *groan* I have just learned not to tell them anything they won’t understand….
