Happy Friday, dear friends, and welcome to the Open Mic! If you’re new here or have forgotten how this works, when we don’t have a guest post, I pose a question and we all discuss in the comments. Ready? Here we go!
Today’s question: What are the jobs you might have had, in an alternate universe? Who are your alternate selves?
It’s an odd question and you are free to interpret it how you like, but in my mind it refers to the things I wish I could do but just can’t in this life. For instance, gymnastics: by the time I learned it existed, I was too old to start. But I love to imagine an alternate world in which backflips and upper-body strength are mine for the enjoying. Also: I don’t have the voice to be an opera singer, though that’s another alternate self I like to think about. Or DJing: it’s something I don’t have time for now, but intend to take up should I ever (god forbid) lose my sight. How about you?
The mic stays open all weekend. See you in the comments!
