I know in retrospect, this is a "played" topic, but IF you could be anyone, who would you be? I personally would be myself. I love who and what I have grown to be over the years, and I would not change anything about myself. This is not at all to say that I am conceited in any way, trust me, I am not. Anyway who would you be?

Myself.
I feel very complete and proud of myself and things I have accomplished.
I wish more people felt this way about themselves. There are many unhappy people in this world which make it a point to make our lives miserable.
I don't ever let that bother me.

I know what you mean... I used to suffer from severe depression, and hated myself. It caused a lot of problems and I got sent to Military School. (3 years ago today! )After that I caught myself in the mirror, and thought "you have everything that any girl my age could possibly dream of" I began to love myself and realized there was no one I'd rather be. Nice to see there are other people who feel the same way

I would bet my left testicle and right ventricle that KROC secretly wishes he could be me. He displays all of the classic symptoms of envy and projection:

He claims to be bothered by me. He slams everything I say.

Yet for some reason, wherever I am....she shows up shortly thereafter.

He goes out of his way to right a "coming out" song parody for yours truly (I'm flattered that anyone would go through that much trouble)

he can't get enough of me....he sooooooo wants to be me.

And when he finds this post (which he will), he will start ranting and raving about how "eeeewwwwwww....you......Matt D????? Don't flatter yourself...."


Or something along those lines....his secret lust and envy for me will become all the more evident.

And the more demeaning, condescending, and more "in denial" his post is.....the more envious he is. 'Tis true.

If he avoids this thread altogether.....then that too will speak volumes.

LOL Matt D!  Laugh out loud  Laugh out loud

I assume if you and KROC were a couple, you would be the male and Kroc would be the female.
No offense Kroc but Matt D does come off as a more masculine and you seem to get caught up in too many hissy fits with other members.
You guys are both cool and shouldn't fight so much.  Smile



I am happy with myself.
Good thread Pilothica737.  Smile

Oh, and I would be myself, but a bit more in shape and with better eyes so I could have better shots of finishing ROTC as an Air Force Pilot.

NO, I HAVE NO BOOBS!!!

Who would I be? Well, I'm going to go with the crowd and say: Myself (unless Tiger Woods isn't taken - just kidding). Which is not to say that there aren't areas that need some improving. For example: my golf score, my dating skills, etc. But I'd say that I'm about 80% happy with myself, and I'm working on the stuff that needs work.

Matt D. That was actually hilarious, and you will get a pass other than the fact you need a left testicle, if you plan to give on up.

Bruno, me and Matt D do not fight. It's more along the lines of accelerated ball busting. Errrrr, I forgot, better not use a work like "ball" in relation to Matt D. Oh, and Matt D more masculine than me? Hey your opinion, but I have yet to post my teen angst type problems on here how I am "seeing" this one chick, but I like her friend better, and I think the friend likes me too, and yada yada yada. Besides, unlike most men...I am secure in who I am.

Oh, and Matty, don't front, you know you laughed at the song parody. Humor is priceless.....

Not to be the party pooper, but what is the point of having a question with potential for some really interesting responses if everyone just gives the same answer? It's not like the mere suggestion that you fantasize about someone else's life implies that you don't like your own! In fact, if everyone truly answered the question as it was put forth(i.e. anyone ELSE implies someone other than yourself), I think most answers would probably lead to someone you respect or admire.

Honestly, I'm not trying to be the @$$ of this thread, it just seems to have turned into a Dear Abby personal reassurance therapy session.

Well, I guess if I am knocking others for not truly answering the question, I should probably take a stab...

...I would have to say Chuck Yeager. He might not be the smartest, richest or best looking dude to ever tame a jet, but that guy has lived a million lives and has twice as many stories to tell. I've heard he can be an arrogant sob, so I'd have to lighten that up some. Honestly, what guy wouldn't want to say he's done half of the things Yeager has accomplished.

P.S. -- If I had a few more wild hairs, my next choice would have to be Jack Nicholson.

Superfly, Your words..."There are many unhappy people in this world which make it a point to make our lives miserable." I don't ever let that bother me."--
have to be the most profound words I have heard in a long time.

I don't share most of you views on the world, politics, collies, etc., but it just goes to show you that if you look hard, you may find some redeeming qualities in a person. Thank you for sharing that thought of yours.

I like myself as well. As one matures the fantasizing about being someone else generally subsides.
However, I have been entertaining the Idea while reading this thread and I have decided that I had the chance I would be 1.)Pamela Anderson; I have always wondered what sex would be like from a female perspective, (no I am not homosexual, just curious as to the rumors about the female orgazm being so great)
I had several other fleeting thoughts like Abe Lincoln; Saddam Hussein; Conan O'Brian...but the more I think about it the less I want to be anyone but me.

"As one matures the fantasizing about being someone else generally subsides. "

How untrue I hope that statement proves to be. Especially when it's coming from someone younger than myself. Not so much about being other people, but about fantasy in general. A little daydreamin' never hurt anyone. Case in point...I really like Jimmy Buffet and almost all of his songs have roots in his vivid imagination. How dull would his music be if he didn't have such fantasy's to describe to us? Speaking of Buffet...he's right up there on my list of people to be.

As for the fantasies, I plan to be 95 in a rocker on my front porch daydreamin' about something. Most likely it will be the 84 year-old hot momma with the stroller from across the hall in the nursing home.

I'd be me. For some reason God chose that and who am I to argue? I just wish He'd let me know to what end.

Gotta go. The dog and I are missing Susan after only 14 hours and must go look at stars. OK, the moon and a few stars. Alright already, she has to go attack phantom coyotes.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Goodnight people.

Hamsfist,

I don't think this is a dear Abby thread at all! It is a simple question, not limited to a certain response. I personally said me because I love who I am, and I feel I have everything a girl could possibly have. It's not about giving an answer to entertain people, it's just a simple question that I was interesting. I find it to be rather refreshing to hear so many people say that they want to be themselves. Please don't cause a flamewar.
Jacqueline

Figured I should post something different.


Personally..I do like myself. In fanstasy though I wouldn't have minded being one of those barn stormer pilots. Crashing planes for fun and walking away? Sounds kinda fun to me.  Smile
