But I'm not very sneaky, and lack manual coordination skills.  There's a box in the hall at work today, and I've tripped over it twice already.  ;)

Actually, I'd like to think I would have been a Princess, at least.  Or the heroine of a Regency novel.  

I seem to remember having long red hair and riding a camel to a remote palace--or was that a Barbara Cartland novel?  

Much more glamorous than sitting at work typing, followed by walking on the treadmill at home, fixing supper, and cleaning house.

Think how much more exciting our lives could be if they were just accompanied by a soundtrack, like in the movies.  One-second glances in real life  become 2 minute meaningful moments with various camera angles.  Hmmmmm....just noticed I used the same letters in 2 different words in the previous sentence.  Glances, angles.  Can you tell I'm going into a stream-of-consciousness mode?  Need to eat something today other than sugar.  Had Whoppers for breakfast and several mini candy bars for lunch.
