Tag

I was tagged by Shoehound. So here are my replies and the three bloggers I'm tagging in turn at the end.

Pick 5 of the following and then complete the sentences. Then pass this little meme on to 3 more of your blog friends!

But no tag backs!

And be careful…you could be next!

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 inn-keeper…
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 could be a world famous blogger…
If I could be a justice on any one court in the world…
If I could be married to any current famous political figure…


If I could be a missionary… Been there, done that.

If I could be a professor… I'd work at a small Jesuit college and teach students to see Reality with a capital R and to rid themselves of superstition. I'd also go in for those tweedy jackets and sabbaticals in London.

If I could be a linguist… I would be done studying dead languages and wouldn't have to take New Testament Greek in the fall and face the humiliation of dead adult brain cells laughing each time I try to hold onto case endings during exams.

If I could be a writer…that sold millions, I could change the effed-up world and give up my business and be on lots of talk radio shows and maybe get my own radio show and then show everyone that they are wrong about everything they think they know but really don't because I, the writer know more! C-Span would reintroduce "book shelf" or corner or whatever the heck it was just for ME! Move over J.K.

If I could be an athlete… I would run long distances, like two blocks EVERY SINGLE DAY and look really chic and svelte in those Nike tight-fitting sweatsuits that prove I'm not like the rest of my forty-something peer group that doesn't have the self-respect to move their buns.

If I could be a musician…I'd be Bono.

(I cheated and did six... after all that first one doesn't really count. [g])

Tagging Jeannette, Beth, and Kim. You're next!

I knew you would have great answers. But, if I were music...I'd be WITH Bono! LOL ;)

Oh you are too smart! I should have thought of that. I guess I'm what I'm really after is his soul, not just his body. :)
