A few days ago, I was on the phone being questioned for an up-coming research project. I frequently get these calls and enjoy participating in the focus groups if I qualify.
The last question I was asked was, "If you could spend an entire day with any public figure, who would it be and why?" I had never been asked this question before,and so for once, I was at a loss for words. I thought for a few moments, my mind just spinning with possibilities and after about 10 seconds responded with "I guess Dr. James Dobson. The lady responded with "Who??" I explained who he was and the reason why was "because I would just question him from dawn till dark about parenting, children, marriage and such because my husband and kids are pretty much my favorite things and I want to be the best mom/wife I can be". She said, "Well....that's original. Usually we get the president, (I of course had thought of him, but what would we talk about for an entire day???) or various other political figures. " I got the research project. I doubt it was all based on that question, however.
Want to know my runner-up?? Laura Bush. I also thought Oprah would be a very entertaining person to be with as well.
As soon as I hung up, I knew I had a great question for the blog... :) I'm so curious as to what other people would say...especially other Moms. So there you have it...now I will sit back and enjoy your answers! Have a great weekend.
