If I were...

If I were a month, I would be late September

If I were a day of the week, I would be Friday pressing into the weekend

If I were a time of day, I would be the dead of night

If I were a planet, I would be Pluto, the reconsidered

If I were an animal, I would be a wild beast of a cat, a leopard perhaps

If I were a direction, I would be West

If I were a piece of furniture, I would be destroyed and used for firewood, so I could escape to the ether

If I were a liquid, I would be breast milk

If I were a gemstone, I would be jasper

If I were a tree, I would never be pruned

If I were a tool, I would be a lathe

If I were a flower, I would be clematis

If I were a kind of weather, I would be a thunderstorm rolling over the Plains

If I were a musical instrument, I would be tucked in a corner so there could be silence

If I were a color, I would be deep orange

If I were an emotion, I would be hope

If I were a fruit, I would be a ripe mango

If I were a sound, I would be the wind in the trees

If I were an element, I would be earth

If I were a car, I wouldn't be, I would walk

If I were a food, I would be a slice of chocolate cream pie

If I were a place, I would be an empty stretch of red desert, far from the din of the city

If I were a material, I would be silk as it slips off skin

If I were a taste, I would be crème brulee

If I were a scent, I would be the fresh earth after rain

If I were an object, I would be the rain itself

If I were a body part, I would be the inside of the wrist

If I were a facial expression, I would be smile lines

If I were a pair of shoes, I would be well worn


A meme that been going around. No idea where it started. I saw it on the The Half Full Glass, blog of the gorgeous Kakka, who is the taste of hot chocolate, the smell of cinnamon and who embodies the emotion of love.

What about you? What would you be?

  3. If I were a spade, I'd be a shovel.

    Not sure I can let you get away with the car one - otherwise quality.
