I’m inside of a metal tube flying through the air at 500 MPH and I am reading one of those terrible in-flight magazines. But it has a “what if” section in the back and I just love cheesy crap like that. It’s a Q&A with Harry Connick Jr. who has to be one of the coolest guys on the planet and I am sitting here thinking to myself:
“What if I was super talented, good looking, rich and famous? What would I say to these questions? “
One can pretend…
If you could give your 10 year old self one piece of advice, what would it be?
CR: Set goals for yourself that are slightly out of reach, continually fail to achieve them, learn from your failures and never stop working your tail off to do better next time.
If you could be any fictional character who would you be?
CR: Vladimir Putin. Just kidding. Superman. He could fly. In space. Silly question.
If you had a time machine, where would you go and why?
CR: I would go 500 years into the future. Not far enough to see that we’ve destroyed ourselves, but far enough to be mind blown by what we’ve achieved in so little time.
If you could have any other talent, what would it be?
CR: That first requires A talent so let’s start there. I would be an amazing dancer.
If you were born 100 years ago, what would you be doing?
CR: I’d be a rancher – as far away from the founding of the Federal Reserve as humanly possible.
If you were to wake up in bed next to any celebrity, who would it be?
CR: Kim Jong Un. So I could strangle him before he wakes up. Just kidding. Sort of.
If you had coined a single phrase of wisdom, what would it be?
CR: “Money isn’t everything”.
Go ahead, use the comments and pretend you’re awesome also.
