Obviously, I can have fun with this one. At first I thought, definitely someone very rich and famous in Hollywood, so that I can drink Dom Perignon and live the good life for a day; late morning Swedish massage, lunch at The Ivy with Paris and Nicole, the paparazzi hot on our heels, followed by a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive. In the evening, I’ll roll out in my Bentley, dressed in something fabulous that my personal stylist has picked out for me, for dinner at Koi with my good friends Madonna and Beyonce.
But, that sounds just a tad too shallow. I mean, I can be anyone! I can change things. That’s why I decided that I’d want to trade lives with South Africa’s controversial president, Jacob Zuma, for a day. But please, only for a day, because I won’t be able to keep up with all of his wives and children.
With only one day, I will have my work cut out for me. I’ll start with the corruption. Fire all corrupt officials (which will probably take most of the day), and hire competent people that have good educations and are experts in their fields, no matter their race and gender.
I’ll make Grade 1 to 12 education compulsory for all. I’ll make some adjustments in the budget; less money for ridiculous government spending like traveling, parties and expensive German cars, and more money towards health care, education and housing.
I would also have to deal with that clown, Julius Malema, and put him in his place. Ugh! On second thought, maybe I should just trade lives with Justin Bieber.
