If you could switch blogs with any blogger for a week, with whom would you switch and why?
I really admire one particular blogger and his blog and would dearly love to switch places with him for a day, or a week, as this prompt suggests. That would be The Hook, of You’ve Been Hooked fame. I love his blog about the perils and adventures of the life of a bellman in a Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada hotel.
The drawback to this switch would be that, in order to write his blog, I would have to act as a bellman in this hotel for a week. And quite frankly, I don’t think I’m up to the job. It’s not an easy job. There is the physicality of the job. And then there is putting up with the folks who come into the hotel. And they are a motley crew.
And, in addition, to these constraints, I would somehow have to be graced with the amazing sense of humor that The Hook has. And I don’t naturally possess that. So that sense of humor would have to be magically transmitted to me in the switch or the blog would be a total flop and The Hook would have a lot of clean-up to do when he got back.
The Hook, of course, would get the short end of the stick, as it were, by having to do my blog. I usually write to the Daily Prompts that Word Press puts out. He would address these with his wonderful sense of humor, no doubt, but I know they would stifle him a bit. And it might be difficult to work in the Kardashians and Lindsey Lohan into the Daily Prompts.
So I would feel honored to switch blogs with The Hook, but I know I wouldn’t do half the job that he does. And he would be pained to do my blog. Sorry, Hook. You got the rotten part of this bargain. I hope I didn’t screw up your blog too much in the time I spent there!
