Narrator Please!

Have you ever seen Stranger Than Fiction? It's a movie about a man who lives a very precise life, one day he hears a voice narrating his actions, reactions, movements, and thoughts. His life. Trying to find help from those who didn't think he was off his rocker was hard. The plot of the movie is quite clever!

When I'm at work waiting for the saw to finish slicing through the metal plates I think to myself "how would my life be narrated?" Would the voice be male or female? British or Irish? English or not? What would my narrator say, how would they describe what I'm feeling or doing? In a way if you think about it, it would be kind of fun to hear a voice telling your story, a voice making your life seem more fantastic then it really is. Wouldn't it be fun while you make lunch to hear a voice say "And she peeled the cheese off the wrapper and gingerly placed it on the lightly buttered bread, the griddle hot as if with anger, she waited until each side was golden brown then served her creation onto a glass plate it clanked as she placed it on the table and bit into her meal. Perfectly golden, the cheese was warm and gooey." Doesn't that sound so much better than "I made a grilled cheese for lunch today."

I could go more in depth, with more questions, but that would just make your head hurt from trying to follow my brain waves. All in all I think it would be pretty cool
to have someone narrate your life, wouldn't  you? (:
