    If you could alter or change 1 physical characteristic about yourself without plastic surgery or anything - just "poof" and you've got it... What would you change & why?

    I would like to have a beautiful mouth with properly aligned white teeth, I guess I am looking for the Hollywood smile look...

      Don't we all want that "perfect smile" ~ I think we can all relate to this one.  Thanks for your answer

    I would get rid of my belly. Not completely, but there is a lot of excess fat there. So if it would all just disappear I don't think I would miss it too much!

      Really?  I know plenty of women who prefer bald or balding men.  It's distinguished looking smile
      When I was 18 I had the biggest crush on Captain John Luke Piccard (sp) of the USS Enterprise smile   I thought he was so sexy.

    The length of my legs-they are too long to get trousers to fit easily so I mostly wear skirts or dresses instead

      Thanks for your answer.  They make "petite" sizes for women, at least around here.  The petite pants (trousers or jeans) have shorter leg lengths but you can still get the waist size you need smile

    I am vertically challenged.  In other words, I am short. If I could change one thing, I would make myself a little taller- about 5 inches.  It's tough when you have to stand on a stool in your kitchen and in your closets. It's the little things!

    I think there is a lot of things I would of considered changing in the past but now after reaching the age of 40 and beyond Im happily married and content so now I don't think about physical characteristics so much, but I do like to maintain a certain level of fitness.

    Probably that I would not take life so seriously all the time.

      I'm not sure that is a physical trait you can change, but thanks for commenting.

    All great answers here! I think I would like to have the body I had in the 20's and the strength I had back then. Oh we must not forget the gray hair LOL. It would be nice to have my hair all dark and not salt and pepper , but no dye for me, I just have to be happy the way everything is right now and to stay healthy and happy.

      Salt & Pepper hair is the bomb!  lol
      My hubby is just starting to get the s&p going & I just love it.  I think it looks fantastic.
      fun answer - thanks for sharing!

    I think I will opt to unite with the late Nora Ephron and say, "My Neck!" I can see the signs of aging in this area in particular and it is unsettling. I guess it is a good thing that here in the northeast the weather is changing, so can anyone here say, "scarf?"

      Ah yes, the fashionable & functional scarf smile

    I'm on Douna Crane's band wagon...I would love a beautiful smile and beautiful white teeth.

      I'm on that wagon too smile  My teeth don't look like my profile pic anymore - I got really sick for 2 years & my smile suffered for it sad

    I'm quite curvy but not overweight and would love a smaller bottom! Clothes just seem to fit more elegantly on a smaller frame. It's so unfair!

      Mom Katposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      isn't that funny, because the other 1/2 are wishing they had a bigger one to look more voluptuous smile  (at least I do)
      I appreciate your answer, thank you

      Isn't it always the way! We are contrary and always want what we can't have

    As mentioned, healthy mouth with a nice smile would be fantastic. Never really understood why health insurance covers months in the hospital at $3000 per day but they don't cover dental which might cost $30,000 to have a perfect mouth. It is proven that heart and major health issues stem from poor oral hygiene, so insurance companies might actually spend less. Anyway, great question.

      Health care does a lot of crazy stuff that doesn't make sense to most of us smile  Thanks for your response.

    I can change a lot of things by exercising or not exercising.  Recently I have been working on by abs, chest, shoulders and triceps by dong push ups and planks.  However I can not do much about my height.  So if I could magically or scientifically change one thing I would like to be 4 inches taller.  I am short and it would nice to be closer to an average height.  Tall people are often treated better and have an easier time reaching things.

    A few times I have been singled out because I am short.  People have bothered me or tried to physically pick on me.  It takes a lot to bother me and I am strong but I still don't like it when people try.

      I can understand where you are coming from.  Here's a little food for thought: I had a boss that I worked with for over 6 years before I realized that she was shorter than me!  She had authority & a big personality ~ she stood taller than her hei

    I'd have my leg back the way it was before I smashed my knee up last year! It puts things in perspective - I can put up with all my aesthetic deficiencies; if I look like Ma Kettle - who cares? I just want to be able to run, skip and dance the way I did before - and took for granted.  I was never a sporty type of person, but I live on nervous energy, and it's not until you can't move very much you realize how much you did move:)  I guess that's not a funny answer but it's a true one. By the way, I don't actually look very much like Ma Kettle.

      I love your answer!  It's so true - we take a lot of what we have & can do for granted.  If I could snap my fingers & grant a wish - I would give you your old knee back smile
