Because I’m dead tired from being at Bouchercon and on tour with Should Have Played Poker, I thought the only appropriate question for this month’s Clicking Our Heels is “If you could come back for a day as someone else, who would it be?” My answer is simple – anyone who gets to hibernate for a few weeks – Smokey the Bear? -- Debra H. Goldstein
Jennae M. Phillippe – Aretha Franklin. I would love to be able to sing like that, and have that kind of presence. She defined Diva.
Sparkle Abbey – It would be fun to come back as someone’s guardian angel. (I know I’m not supposed to comment on other people’s quotes….but I’d get in line for these two as my guardian angel…dhg)
Marilyn Meredith – Mary Higgins Clark. I think she is one of the most caring and friendly big name authors there is.
Bethany Maines – Only a day? Do I get to pick the day? I think I’d like to be Twitch of Magic Mike and So You Think You Can Dance. It would be amazing to move like that. https://youtu.be/ybm0bJIWUzs
Linda Rodriguez – I’ve actually never really wanted to be anyone but myself, but perhaps the alternate Linda who made all those different choice that I didn’t make throughout my life.
Juliana Aragon Fatula – Robin Williams remains my favorite actor/comedian. He had skills that I can only aspire to possess. He was loved by so many. I just want to ask him why he chose to take his own life and leave us.
Kay Kendall – Eleanor Roosevelt led an interest life and did remarkable things. I would like to see what it was like to be her for one day, preferably during the darkest days of World War Two. I would like to know what it was like at the White House under all that stress.
Paffi Flood – No one, really. Although I can think of accomplished people who I think I’d like to come back as, but I also know they dealt with sadness and challenges, in ways incomparable to mine.
