    my great-grandmother.

    i think it would be the best way for me to get to know her.

    This might sound lame, but it would be my only sister. She lives back in MN with her husband, four kids and she does daycare for a living. I would love to have her patience and pleasant demeanor.

    Since I am the one asking the question, I guess i'd better answer...

    I am really happy in my shoes, so I don't think I would want to walk in someone elses. However, I would like for one day, for the people I once called my family and friends to walk in my shoes or just to walk next to me, so they can see that my life is what I want, that I am happy, that my kids are happy, that I am living for me. Which is something they can't do for themselves.

    I am trying to live life with minimal regrets, and loving someone should not be a regret nor an embarassment, no matter their color, religon, sexuality, height, weight, etc.

    Always,
    Jen

    (sorry I can't post my the link to my blog, as we have an ex that is internet stalking us, best I can do is give you my email)

    Someone who is healthy and active and has no neck pain or headaches. I'd like to know what that's like, just for a day.

    Either that, or an oceanographer that gets to dive in the deep ocean. I find that fascinating but would freak out as soon as I was down a few feet!

    I have different people for different reasons
    Oprah-I would like to know how it would feel to be watched and idolized by millions, to be so sure of yourself and how to overcome very bad childhoods. Also she has lots of money and cool houses--that would be cool too.

    Jacques Cousteau-I would like to do research for a day and maybe find a new species

    Condaleeza Rice--she has access to the president and maybe could knock some sence into him.--haha but really I would like to experience a high political position for a day.

    Really though, I am pretty happy just boing me.

    oprah...because the coolest feeling in the world has to be handing over cash/cars/schools/houses/college educations to people who really need them but can't afford them...i would love to be able to help people on the level that she does...she helps more people than our own damn government...(well, maybe not, but you get the idea)...

    peace...

    Steve West, the dude who won the $340 million Powerball lottery. I'd like to make a few small purchases...

    I like my shoes (which usually means barefoot) but maybe my friend JJ so I can understand his mind better and give more educated advice or my friend Tybo and in his case I think I would pray.

    Georg W. Bush. Because I want to know what this man is really thinking. Plus I'd like to know how he sleeps at night.

    Though the experience would probably scar me for life.

    My daughter's shoes.
    That might improve our communication a great deal.

    My great grand fathers and mothers. To know who they really were and to see which one of them is responsible for my parent's shortcomings!
