Alternate Reality Career

Let’s say that you could take a peek at yourself in an alternate reality. What would your career be? Something that’s about your polar opposite, say.

I’m pretty sure I’d be a construction worker, though I could see myself being a cobbler, too.

Radio DJ. Did that for awhile as a volunteer for my local NPR station. Got to admit, it's fun.

Ciao,

A virtuoso xylophonist. Either that or the owner/manager of a tasteful nude farm--of course, I'd be the only guy allowed in. Sorry Paul, Ryan, John, Steve A. and Greg.

All kidding aside, I'd like to have anything to do with Formula One racing. Whether I'd be driver like Fernando Alonzo, (but not Michael Schumaker) a mechanic, a team owner, sponsor--anything. Crap, I'd even sell beer, peanuts and popcorn in the stands just to go to the races for free.

I'd run something like the resort in "The Prisoner". Evil persons would be snatched and shipped in and then through something like the Dale Carnegie Method they would completely change just as George Wallace did when Mohamed Ali visited him down at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Maryland after being shot. Funnymentalist preachers would fed a diet of marijuana tainted food and encouraged to deal with their homosexuality by going to gay orgies in remodeled churches.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
