Upgrade Me !
For those that know me, this is not earth shaking info. For those that don't, this may be a shock. I am vertically challenged. I know, I sound bigger in print. At 5'3" inches tall, I have heard all the short jokes, everyday. Fortunately for me, I got over that in 3rd grade. I have embraced my size, and learned to deal with the fact that I have to ask my wife to reach things on the top shelf of the kitchen cupboards. But I also got to be on top when building a
human pyramid in school.
Now that I have set the stage, I pose a question that I have pondered on. If you could re-design the human body, what change would you make? Not just enhancing what you have, that would be too easy. Be sure to think long term, because something that sounds good at 20 years old, may not be so good at 70.
I would do
Yes, an eye on the end of my finger. Just think, when looking for your slippers, just reach down and extend your finger, and voila, there they are. Or, instead of digging through your purse or pocket, simply reach in and look around! Of course this eye would have to have night vision. If you wanted to spy on someone, just put your finger around the corner! You would also have the ability to check out those new jeans you just bought to see how they look from "behind"! No more asking the age old question, "do these pants make my butt look big? If you bump your head, you could check to see if it's bleeding! Check for spiders in you shoe, look for that quarter that fell between the sofa cushions, buckle the car seat in the car with ease! The list goes on...
So, I ask you, what would you alter?
