It's funny because when I try to think of things, there's not too much I can come up with other than a spin off on my current profession (writing). I guess that's a good thing. :D I do think it would be fun to be a professional athlete for a day, like an Olympic runner or soccer player or something. But I would hope that I would magically receive the "talent" for that day too. ;)
