A Week in the Life #SecretSubjectSway August 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 16 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is:
You get to swap lives with a family member or close friend for a week- who do you choose and why? What do you think they'll love about your life? What do you think that they'll be glad they only have to be stuck in your shoes for a week about?

Thank you for this interesting subject prompt!!! <3

I won't lie, my first answer that popped in my head... totally cool.... and totally inappropriate. So, I had to really think this through. I considered several options. I have some excellent options. In all cases, I definitely get the better end of the bargain. I would feel bad for anyone having to live a week in my shoes. Hopefully, they would get lucky, and I would not really be sick that week. 

I almost picked my friend Hasan or my friend Eileen or my Dad or Gigi..... In the end my choice is Chad.

I think it could really help us understand each other. It would be cool to see each other through the other person's eyes. We could really get closer, which nearly seems impossible. 

I think he would love my life, since in many ways, my life is his life. Plus, he would get A LOT more Gigi time! I would finally get a better understanding of what his work is like. 

Unfortunately, I am very rarely not sick for seven days straight, so he would likely spend some of the time sick. For him that would stink, but it would be awesome for me. Having him be able to understand what I go through, would be a huge blessing. 

If nothing else, we would be able to say we truly know what it is like to walk a mile in each other shoes. That would be awesome in and of itself! 

What about you... Who would you like to switch places with for a week?!

***Note: I take it as switch places, as in swap into each other's bodies. If it were simply switch lives period... I think I would still choose Chad, though he may be fired by the week's end. No way I could do his job in my body! LOL***

Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and ENJOY! 


  1. I don't think I could switch with my friends eitehr, then I'd have to deal with their spouses and that WOULD NEVER WORK...

    I would switch with my hubby so we could understand each other as well.

  2. I love what you did with this! I think swapping with your spouse is a great idea because as much as we can explain what we're going matter how loving and empathetic they one quite knows the situation til they experience it themselves. Way to rock it lady!

  3. I love not only who you chose but why you chose him. A better understanding of each other's perspective is an awesome reason to choose your significant other.

  4. What a great question -- and you did such a good job with your choice and your reasons. I would love to switch places with my daughter.

  5. That was an awesome prompt!
    It can never hurt to truly walk in another person's shoes for a while.
    I think I would pick Colin for the following reasons:
    I think his life is pretty cool and careless
    I would have soooo much energy all day long!
    It would give me a chance to get to know his buddies on a different level
    I would find out how my parenting is being perceived by a kid

  6. I think swapping lives with someone would be awesome, especially a significant other. You'd see each other with new eyes at the end of the week for certain.

  7. Having been very sick and living a miserable life in recent years, I think it would have helped my ex greatly to see what I actually went through. I know I could not have done his job either. These days I wish ANY of my family had to deal with my life. No one understands and I'd truly LOVE for anyone to have my life for a day, they'd never last.

  8. Interesting prompt...I'm not sure who I would swap with. Probably my kids to see things through their perspective, and vice versa. Maybe then they wouldn't argue with each other as much. ;)

  9. Love your choice and the reason behind it!!!

  10. Can I swap with Calista Flockhart?? Please!!??

    Or your idea - swap with your SO. That too.

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy of (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
