What Would You Be?

If I were a month I’d be October
If I were a day I’d be Friday
If I were a time of day I’d be mid-morning
If I were a planet I’d be Mars

If I were a sea animal I’d be a jellyfish
If I were a direction I’d be north
If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a big soft chair
If I were a liquid I’d be mocha coffee

If I were a gem stone I’d be labradorite
If I were a tree I’d be a weeping willow

If I were a tool I’d be a hammer
If I were a flower I’d be a hydrangea

If I were an element of weather I’d be a balmy breeze
If I were a musical instrument I’d be a violin
If I were a color I'd be purple

If I were an emotion I’d be peaceful

If I were a fruit I’d be a strawberry
If I were a sound I’d be laughter
If I were an element I'd be fire

If I were a car I’d be a Beetle

If I were a food I’d be chocolate
If I were a place I’d be an Italy
If I were a material I'd be fine cotton

If I were a taste I’d be savory

If I were a scent I’d be citrus

If I were a body part I’d be eyes
If I were a facial expression I'd be a smile
If I were a song I’d be something belted out from the heart.

If I were a bird I'd be an owl

If I were a gift I'd be a book
If I were a street I'd be a street in Venice

If I were a city I'd be in Korea
If I were a door I'd always be open

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be comfortable

And what would you be?

(I got this wonderful bit from close friend Allegra -
and as it is with close friends, a number of our answers were the same).


  1. Mind if I snag it as well? Loved Allegra's - love yours too!

  2. Yes they are, and that may give people an idea of how close we are but not necessarily why we are so close *smiling*

  3. What a beautiful you mind if I snag it as well?!

  4. Oh that was great, really lovely.

  8. Great post Lori! I'll have to sit down and apply this to myself..... I'm thinking that once you answer these questions, and then come back later on and read....the answers can be very insightful in terms of getting better in touch with who you are and what makes you tick as a person..... Thanks for this....kind of a thought provoking exercise.... :)

  9. Simply wonderful! I really enjoyed your list!..,If I were a season, one things I'd definatley be is spring!
