Want to swap lives with me?

Now and again someone asks, would you do another life swap? At 2 a.m. on a sleepless night, I suddenly envisioned an ad in The Village Voice: "73-year-old writer wants to swap lives with 37-year-old. You'll get a taste of what lies ahead for you, and maybe I'll rediscover the energy I need to finish my new novel. Or you'll finish it for me??" It's 2015, not 1973; I'm talking about a mostly virtual swap. But if you drink green sludge for breakfast, I'm willing to give it a try, as long as you'll take on my herbed omelettes with sauteed veggies. Who knows what might happen next?



Can it be...? Are there no 37 year olds ready to leap at the chance to undergo a virtual swap?! Sigh. (Hmmm Why not? Because you love your life too much? Because you're afraid it would fall apart if you were briefly virtually absent? :))
