King of Saudi Arabia, for a day.
I don't know who the king of Saudi Arabia is or even if they have one but I rather like the idea of being him for a day, maybe 2. I think it would be great not being me for a day and being someone else (like the king (or not) of Saudi Arabia, a Dutch Prince, Prince, Andy Roddick, Barry Manilow, Charlie from the chocolate factory etc). I quite like the idea of being anonymous, keeping your identity an enigma, not divulging the secrets of your deepest thoughts or exploiting traits of your character, however letting what you know or do best do the talking, kind of like the 1967 experiment by Charles Goetzinger involving no more than university students, a bag and a theory.
