“Do you want to be anyone else?” / Memorable Fancies #1358

[“Do you want to be anyone else?” – Jean Baudrillard]

Some answers are:

.. No, I want to be everyone else.

.. No, I’d like to be me, … please? Just this once?

.. Yes. I’d like to be Ralph Kargen of Otta, Nebraska. He’s a fictional character who gets sucked into a hole in the ground one day by an evil being and that sounds like the most exciting thing that ever happened in Nebraska.

.. Yes. I’d like to be one of those movie characters who keeps coming back in sequel after sequel and never gets any older. – But I guess that means I want to be a robot.

.. Who’s asking that question? I want to be that person. Then I could ask other people if they want to be anyone else and listen to all the ways they don’t want to be themselves.
