If I were...

A little while ago, my dear friend Barry at Life in Quotations filled out this survey. I adored it so much, I had to fill it out myself...

Here it goes...

If I were a month, I’d be June.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Friday.
If I were a time of day, I’d be 5 p.m.
If I were a planet, I’d be Saturn.
If I were a sea animal, I’d be a pink dolphin.

If I were a direction, I’d be right.
If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a chaise.
If I were a liquid, I’d be champagne.
If I were a gemstone, I’d be a sapphire.
If I were a tree, I’d be a cherry tree.

If I were a tool, I’d be a blade.
If I were a flower, I’d be a cherry blossom.
If I were a kind of weather, I’d be stormy.
If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a mandolin.
If I were a color, I’d be fuchsia.

If I were an emotion, I’d be longing.
If I were a fruit, I’d be a cherry.
If I were a sound, I’d be a crashing wave.
If I were an element, I’d be fire.
If I were a car, I’d be a vintage Mercedes Benz.

If I were a food, I’d be a pink cupcake.
If I were a place, I’d be the beach.
If I were a material, I’d be tulle.
If I were a taste, I’d be delicious.
If I were a scent, I’d be jasmine.

If I were an object, I’d be a roller coaster.
If I were a body part, I’d be your lips.
If I were a facial expression, I’d be your smile.
If I were a song, I’d be The Fear by Lily Allen.
If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be jeweled sandals.

What would you be?

PS. Today is Barry's birthday. Happy birthday, sweetie!
PPS. Check out my guest post over at Tales of a Wondering Star!


Leah said...

Interesting... I didn't know that there is a pink dolphin.

I was just puzzled by the tool answer... why a blade?

Happy Thursday Jen! xoxo

chesca said...

beautiful! not like the normal, insanely boring question/answers that i can barely look at never mind read.

original and beautiful :)

Patricia Snook said...

Really interesting answers there! But yes, I'm with Leah, why a blade?! That's quite scarey! Champagne yes, understandable.

Fab! *love*


Betty and Veronica said...

I love it! Great survey!


Patricia Snook said...

Phew! So beautifully described, "turning it into something beautiful..."


perfectionishuman said...

Who knew pink dolphins even existed...mind blown!

MyStrawberryCocktail said...

love this article! and so nice photos! really interesting:)

Nikosmommy said...

Great list! Ahhh 'the Fear' by Lilly Allen..such a great song. Sums up things soooo well!

Rachel said...

Fantastic post! It is definitely an interesting tag. :)

Barry said...

Jen you're definitely a pink cupcake. Deliciously, impossibly sweet!

Thank you so much for my birthday wish. I can honestly say this day would have felt empty if I hadn't heard from you, no shit. You're one of the kindest, most amazing friends I've ever had and I love every bit of who you are.


Charmalade said...

Ahh this made me smile, especially for "The Fear!" I love me some Lily Allen.

Jaime said...

I want to do this post too! :)

Cafe Fashionista said...

There's really such a thing as a pink dolphin?! Ooh, I want to be that too!! And your comment yesterday made me beam ear to ear - chocolate covered strawberries...what a fabulous thought!

By the way, if I were a song I'd be..."I'm Not Your Toy" by La Roux. Love it!! :)

Inspiration in Italy said...

This is so beautiful, I loved reading this. You truly have the most beautiful answers. I love the sound of crashing is so peaceful. When I was first dating my husband, we would often sit on the beach in San Diego, even in the cold....bundle up and bring a coffee. We would just sit and watch the waves, listening to the sound. Then when we were married and living in San Diego, we did the same....we brought our puppy and we sat on the sand or the rocks listening to the waves. I think I have such sentimental ties to the ocean...

Your blog always makes me think and ponder, I love it. :)


nookie said...

ohh the pink dolphin is so cute:)

OceanDreams said...

I love this and might do this too! I liked that you were a crashed wave and roller coaster, that is a good description of the human emotion, I find myself like this sometimes too!

Sherin said...

Brilliant post!

If I were an animal, I'd be a dolphin as well.

aurora. said...

thanks for the lovely comment on my blog :)

JUST ME said...

first of all: I need those shoes.

Second of all: Wait. THERE ARE PINK DOLPHINS?

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, this is beautiful - but I'm not going to bore everyone too much. So here goes:
If I were a month, I’d be May.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be Saturday.
If I were a time of day, I’d be 10 p.m.
If I were a planet, I’d be Mercury.
If I were a sea animal, I’d be any dolphin.
Tomorrow is your day!

Amelia is... said...

This is such a great post, I might have to do it myself too. Don't worry about me! I am fine and I really doubt there is anything wrong the doctors probably just want to rule out anything serious. Thank you for the support though!

Josie said...

This was lovely... And super original! Not that I should be surprised, of course :)
xxoo Josie

MJ said...

If I were a tool, I'd be a geological hammer! holler.

Sara said...

It's also my mother's birthday! She's exactly as old as Barry!

Romany said...

If I were a song, I'd be Blade Runner Blue by Vangelis.

Love this post (and that picture of cherry blossoms, very pretty)!

Manon said...

Interesting and cute! I love this post!

Melanie's Randomness said...

I <3 you. Seriously. I've called a few of my friends about the concert & they all kinda gave me this, "I dunno answer". You treated me more like a friend who actually cared than any of them. Thank you!!! Your such a great friend & I really wish we weren't so far away. That guy makes me so angry but i'll fix him.

I loved this If I were...I love your rollercoaster answer. Aren't we all a rollercoaser sometimes? I could totally picture you as a dolphin. They are such happy creatures & watch out for people. You'd totally be a mandolin too. That's one of my favorite instruments because when its smaller & when its played right the sound is beautiful. =)

Thanks Jen. thank you for being there. *hugs* =)
