Have an extra body part, what it be? I want another pair of hands, especially when it say'press 2 sides together and remove , can't b****y reach ๐Ÿ˜ก

Eglantine19 Sun 13-Aug-17 09:53:15

Extra or additional? I'd love a pair of gills. But if it's got to be more of the same I'll have an extra bladder!

gillybob Sun 13-Aug-17 09:55:31

I would have a second brain please. The one I have doesn't engage quick enough.

Anniebach Sun 13-Aug-17 09:57:48

Hands please, be free of this damn strapping and will be able to use a pen again

TerriBull Sun 13-Aug-17 10:47:32

Nothing extra, I'd settle some vitality and energy like I used to have before I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid and prescribed Thyroxine which doesn't do a lot hmm

M0nica Sun 13-Aug-17 15:47:29

I would give almost anything to get my stamina back. I used to be able to go out and garden for half a day then shoot out to do something else and repeat every day.

I can still do it- for a day, but I then need two days to recover.

New hands and bladder. The other joints are not too bad but the arthritis in my hands causes lots of difficulties and my bladder is not as efficient as it was.

Jane10 Sun 13-Aug-17 15:58:25

New knees!

grannysue05 Sun 13-Aug-17 16:15:13

New hair (is that counted as a body part?) Lush and colourful instead of thin and wispy!

Cherrytree59 Sun 13-Aug-17 16:30:21

Eyes in the back of my head

Although DGC think Gran already does grin

LadyGracie Sun 13-Aug-17 17:39:38

Eyes that can see properly please

Kittye Sun 13-Aug-17 18:19:35

Grow some nice new shiny white teeth ๐Ÿ˜

JackyB Sun 13-Aug-17 19:31:28

Digestive system. It's always bubbling and burping in the wrong place at the wrong time.

BBbevan Sun 13-Aug-17 19:35:17

Eyes, I have always been very short sighted

Greyduster Sun 13-Aug-17 19:59:03

Hands for me too! When fly fishing you frequently have to do half a dozen things at once when you hook into a fish and an extra pair of hands would be most useful. Also good eyes, because I can't see to tie the flies on or find them again when they are on the water!!

grannyticktock Sun 13-Aug-17 20:38:24

Teeth for me, please, a whole new set of nice white gnashers. I promise I'd look after them properly this time, and anyway they wouldn't have to last as long as the originals.

DanniRae Mon 14-Aug-17 08:43:31

Same as Eglantine - an extra bladder. No worries about finding a loo when out then!

sue01 Mon 14-Aug-17 09:57:31

New heart please. Despite treatment and ops, the one I have is prone to kicking off at 238 beats a minute. It's done it since I was 13 though... so I suppose I should be used to it by now !

Disgruntled Mon 14-Aug-17 10:16:40

How many are we allowed? I'd like hair, eyes and teeth. And if possible, I think a long tail would be quite handy, for balance and holding on.

carpedeum Mon 14-Aug-17 10:28:39

Terribull, so right about the thyroxine. I have never regained the old energy since diagnosis of hypothyroidism. Maybe it's because the normal spectrum is huge. It needs revising and is really a hidden condition. Well said.

maddyone Mon 14-Aug-17 10:29:16

Hands, bladder, all the usual suggestions would be nice, but most of all I would like a new brain, one that doesn't succumb to depression like mine frequently does.

barbaralynne Mon 14-Aug-17 10:34:57

I totally go along with needing new stamina and I could really do with a new brain that hasn't been affected by cancer medication and treatment please then I'll be able to remember the past better!

Lupin Mon 14-Aug-17 10:40:47

Right now I'd love another shoulder. I've hurt it in someway, somehow and doing my bra up - front or back - makes me yelp.
Other than that I'd love another set of teeth and another voice box that will allow me to sing like I used to. Singing voice very reedy now.

Diddy1 Mon 14-Aug-17 10:42:08

Like others, another bladder would be good, no worrrying about where the loo is when out.

Kim19 Mon 14-Aug-17 11:08:02

I'd love another 5 inches in height evenly spread. Chic I have sometimes managed but never elegant. Actually.....just thought.....some sort of GENTLE stretching could achieve the same result by reducing the width! If only.......
