Body-swapping

From theatrical_muse: If you could trade lives with one person for a day, who would it be, and what would you do?

Sorry, but I wouldn't. I know you're probably thinking I'd leap at the chance, a Delta like me, but look, it mightn't be much, but I'm all I've got and the other person mightn't look after me while they were being me. Besides, if I was someone else, wouldn't I actually be them instead of me? If so, what's the point?

If it was a mind-swap though and I was still me but just in another body, there's only one person I'd trade with: Kerril. Firstly, she'd look after my body while I was away because I'm hers anyway, and secondly, I think we'd both like finding out what it's like in each other's bodies. If you see what I mean.

What would I do? I mean, apart from the obvious? Um, see if food tastes the same (would I like olives now?), try on clothes with Soolin and Cally, savour that novel feeling of being respected. It'd be fun, but I think I'd be glad to get back home.
