So last night my hubby and I were watching "The 100 Greatest Songs of the 00's" (which is pronounced like oh oh's....who knew) and Mike looks at me and asks....
"If you could obtain one talent so that you could switch your career what would it be?"
He answered his own question right away by saying he'd love to be able to sing. This surprised me because he doesn't even sing in the car...yet this is something he wishes he could do as a career.
He said he wouldn't want to be a professional athlete because as you get older you lose that talent....but as a singer you can have a successful career for many years.
Makes complete sense!
Anyway....I thought long and hard about his answer and couldn't come up with anything of my own!
I was frustrated because in my mind I know I'd love to use my obsession with reality TV and turn it into a career.
After the show was over (Beyoncé's Crazy in Love was number 1 in case you were wondering....very NOT well deserved if you ask me) I was laying in bed and thinking about what my answer would be.....
Then I remembered this text convo I had with my sister....
We legit have ESP and both want to trade lives with Nev Schulman from Catfish.
I pretty much kick myself in the buns everyday because Michele and I didn't think to make a documentary about online liars before Nev and Max did.
Do we have any film experience whatsoever?
Can we stalk the shit out of people online and pretty much find out anything about anyone?
(Yes...I get to be the Nev because he's awesome and I love him)
So to answer my hubby's question...
I would want the talent of having Nev's compassion so I could have started the show Catfish myself.
I don't need Nev's online stalking skills...I already have those.
What I need is the ability to be nice and act calm like Nev does when things like this happen...
How could he act so calm and nice and not yell "I TOLD YOU SO" when this Chelsea chick walked out of the house instead of a hunky, tanned male model?
So there you have it....this is what I would do if I could get a new talent and trade jobs with someone.
I guess if I had to pick a back up option I wouldn't hate being this guy...
