If I was…

Cait over at A Delicate Poof posted a list of “If I was” statements that I thought was pretty neat. As I was reading through hers, I started thinking of what I would put for them so I decided to just post them here. :)

If I was a month, I’d be December, the month I was born in. Once you get past the cold, it’s beautiful and clean and gives you a reason to quietly curl up with a good book.

If I was a day of the week, I’d be Sunday. The lazy day to do whatever you feel like.

If I was a time of day, I’d be 9pm…when you’re either revving up for a party, enjoying a quiet evening, or peacefully asleep.

If I was a planet, I’d be Earth. I have too many facets and hidden treasures to be anything else.

If I was a sea animal, I’d be a nautilus. Because it looks neat and has a cool name.

If I was a direction, I’d be North. I’ve just always felt drawn in that direction.

If I was a piece of furniture, I’d be a large overstuffed couch that’s so comfy you can sleep on it.

If I was a liquid, I’d be mercury. Because liquid metal is awesome.

If I was a gemstone, I’d be a quartz, because diamonds are overrated.

If I was a tree, I’d be a true Redwood. Towering over everything. One of the last living dinosaurs.

If I was a  tool, I’d be a swiss army knife. Because I like being useful for many different things.

If I was a flower, I’d be a wood lily. That brilliant red flower hidden in the forest and prairies, smelling wonderfully of Froot Loops.

If I was a kind of weather, I’d be a thunderstorm at night, hands down. With lots and lots of lightning.

If I was a musical instrument, I’d be the uilleann pipes.

If I was a color, I’d be black like my dear Blacky. Showing the world that black doesn’t have to mean death and sadness, but life and joy.

If I was an emotion, I’d be wistfulness. I am ever the dreamer.

If I was a fruit, I’d be a strawberry.

If I was a sound, I’d be the rain falling softly to the ground as thunder rumbled in the background.

If I was an element, I’d be earth. Stoic and stubborn.

If I was a car, I’d be a Mercedes CKL-GTR. Because I loved that car in Need for Speed.

If I was a food, I’d be a platter of fruit. Sometimes sweet and sometimes sour.

If I was a place, I’d be a giant monolith like Uluru.

If I was a material, I’d be smooth, tightly woven cotton.

If I was a taste, I’d be like Sour Patch Kids.

If I was a scent, I’d be vanilla and oranges. Calming and comforting mixed with tangy and crisp.
