If I Were...

I shamelessly ripped off this idea from Apartment 513, (after  running it by her of course). It's kinda scary how many of our answers matched.  If you want an instant feel-good, I definitely recommend you check out Lacey's blog.  Passionate, spicy attitude, eats up life. Yeah I'm a sucker for this stuff.

If I were a month, I’d be July.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Saturday.
If I were a time of day, I’d be 2am.
If I were a planet, I’d be Jupiter.
If I were a sea animal, I’d be a sea otter.

If I were a direction, I’d be South.
If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be an overstuffed sleigh bed.
If I were a liquid, I’d be nectar.
If I were a gemstone, I’d be a diamond.
If I were a tree, I’d be a majestic Redwood.

If I were a tool, I’d be a chisel.
If I were a flower, I’d be an orchid.
If I were a kind of weather, I’d be sunshine.
If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a Steinway grand piano.

If I were a color, I’d be red.
If I were an emotion, I’d be passion.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a mango.  
If I were a sound, I’d be laughter.
If I were an element, I’d be water.

If I were a car, I’d be a Ferrari.
If I were a food, I’d be liquid honey.
If I were a place, I’d be Paris.
If I were a material, I’d be leather.
If I were a taste, I’d be spicy.
If I were a scent, I’d be musk.  
If I were an object, I’d be a mountain.

If I were a body part, I’d be your smile.
If I were a facial expression, I’d be a wink.
If I were a song, I’d be "I'll Be" (Edwin McCain)
If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be Doc Martens.
What would you be?

  2. I love your answers. You chose great photos to go along with them. :) I might have to steal this from you too! Lol.

  3. Bassi, Jen: I hope you decide to do this! :)

  4. The sea otters just trumped anything else I could have commented on. I love otters! If I could be any animal, I would totally be an otter. Love. Them.

    I may just have to steal this idea for tonight's post over at my place. ^_^

  5. Barry, love this little post. Remind me and I will do this post Monday or Tuesday. :) It was fun reading your answers and cannot wait for you to read mine! :)

  6. Barry - I love it! I need to do it on my own blog! I think you can check mine today:)

    I like your answers but I think mine will be quite different!

  7. Excuse but what happened with your bday post??? I see it on my google reader but not on your blog. Well happy bday buddy!!!!

  8. I'm so going to have to copy this!!

    What did happen to your birthday post?! I was gonna comment but it disappeared! Happy Birthday!! I hope it was/is wonderful!!!!

    P.S. - seeing that you commented on my blog made me smile the same grin I have in my picture. :D

  9. Ohh cool!! I love these. I always wonder what makes people choose the answers they choose! Aww sea otters are just too cute!

    So I wanted to tell you like Ari wrote that there is a birthday post for you but it says page not found?!?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Barry!! I hope it was full of happiness! =)

  10. Thanks for your kind words everyone, but my big day isn't actually until Thursday 25th. I prepared something and I thought I had saved it but it posted by mistake. Doh!
    So you didn't miss it and have another chance to wish me a real Happy Birthday on Thursday!

  11. NO WAY

    "I'll Be" is my boyfriend's and my song.
    He sang it to me once, and he NEVER sings. If we ever get married, I want it to be our first dance.

  12. I hope you don't mind, I'm doing this too, but citing you of course :)

  13. Mind you, I usually do not swear, but I fucking loved your answers! Such thought put into this. I will be filling this out on my blog.
