If I Could Be

I got tagged! For a Meme! David of Third World Country tagged me for this new nameless meme that is all about "If I could be"... For an example, look at David's HERE.

So here are the rules in italics, followed by my 5, followed then by my tag for the next three...

"Immediately following there is a list of 24 different occupations. You must select at least 5 of them (feel free to select more). You may add more if you like to your list before you pass it on (after you select 5 of the items as it was passed to you). Each one begins with "If I could be..." Of the 5 you selected, you are to finish each phrase with what you would do as a member of that profession.

For example, if the selected occupation was "pirate" you might take the phrase "If I could be a pirate..." and add to it "I would sail the 7 Seas, dating lasses from around the world."

See how easy that is? Here's the list:

If I could be a scientist...
If I could be a farmer...
If I could be a musician...
If I could be a doctor...
If I could be a painter...
If I could be a gardener...
If I could be a missionary...
If I could be a chef...
If I could be an architect...
If I could be a linguist...
If I could be a psychologist...
If I could be a librarian...
If I could be an athlete...
If I could be a lawyer...
If I could be an innkeeper...
If I could be a professor...
If I could be a writer...
If I could be a llama-rider...
If I could be a bonnie pirate...
If I could be an astronaut...
If I were a dog...
If I were an inventor...
If I were a programmer...
If I were a genius...

My answers (I didn't add any occcupations):

If I could be a painter, I would paint happy murals all over my house, murals of fun things I've done with my children, to constantly remind me of the fun we have... even when they make me frickin' nuts.

If I could be a gardener, I would have the most exquisite English garden that covered my entire yard, the whole damn acre, and it would be beautiful and I would live in my yard all day long, even in the summer. (Instead, I have a black thumb since in my home anything that does not ask to be fed, dies. Thankfully I did not give birth to any mutes. That would have been a bad thing.)

If I could be a linguist I would speak Gaelic, French, Chinese, Russian and Portuguese. I put Gaelic first because its in such high demand...

If I could be a llama rider, I would hire Ogre to pick out my Llama and I would get llamas for the entire Bad Example/Frizzenspark family and we would be a pack of Llama riders, riding our llamas from blogmeet to blogmeet. (And Ogre would ride with us as I forget he's not a BE member... he just feels like one.)

If I could be a missionary, I would spend as much time in that position as I could. Oh wait... Crap. That's not what they really meant is it...

Tag You're It goes to:

Jack of Random Fate because I always want to know whats in his head.

Eric of Straight White Guy because he's funny as hell and who knows what in the heck he'll come up with.

Blog daughter Sissy of And What Next because she is in a great quandry as to what to next with her life and I just want to hear what pops into her brain.

Answers will be posted on THEIR blogs and I'll link to them when they're up.
