Oh, if I were a rich man, doobeedobeedobeedobeedobeedobeedobeedo

Fire Opal: my "earth name" at the wilderness therapy program I used to work for.

My awesome CP, Kristal, is waxing poetic on her blog with the "If I were" blog party. Since I happened to read her blog, I consider myself invited to that party. And since you're reading this, consider yourself invited, too! Aren't blog parties so warm and inclusive? *happy sigh* I like them, too.

So here's the deal. Answer the question with the first thing that pops into your head, not the most brilliant thing that results from hours of careful contemplation. First thing. Promise? Okay, here are mine:

- If I were a season, I’d be Summer.

- If I were a month, I’d be July.

- If I were a day of the week, I’d be Sunday.

- If I were a time of day, I’d be 5:30am.

- If I were a planet, I’d be Venus.

- If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a hand-carved dresser.

- If I were a liquid, I’d be lava.

- If I were a stone, I’d be a fire opal.

- If I were a tool, I’d be a hammer.

- If I were a kind of weather, I’d be a hurricane (hee hee, oh, it's still not funny?).

- If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a flute.

- If I were a colour, I’d be yellow.

- If I were a facial expression, I’d be a wink.

- If I were an emotion, I’d be fear.

- If I were a sound, I’d be a dripping faucet.

- If I were a flavor, I’d be lemon.

- If I were a scent, I’d be jasmine and lavender.

- If I were an object, I’d be a train.

- If I were a body part, I’d be a nose.

- If I were a song, I’d be "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" 

- If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be stilettos.

- If I were transportation, I’d be a giant goose.

- If I were a fairy tale, I’d be The Night Before Christmas.

- If I were a holiday, I’d be the Fourth of July.
