Photo Challenge: Day 6

"A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day."

This is my husband, and I believe he's on the deck of the USS Drum in this photo. We've toured so many ships that I've completely lost track.

There are some obvious reasons I'd like to trade places with my husband. I would love to leave the house and go to a job that I enjoy each weekday (even on the days it sucks). I'd love to be tall enough to reach high shelves. I'd love a day where my hair would look fine after just washing it.

But there are other reasons. My husband has a zest for life that few possess. He tends to be carefree and spontaneous, while still living within the realm of the well-reasoned and practical. He has seemingly endless energy and can remember facts and names and dates like no one I've ever met.

Then again, if we traded places for a day, I'd have to put up with myself for 24 straight hours. Maybe I'm not willing to trade...

Actually it is the USS Alabama currently located in Mobile Bay. That picture was taken in December of 2007 while we were on a Christmas vacation.

Oh, well. I tried. They're both in Mobile. I believe we saw both. We did see both. You're right. The Drum is the submarine.
