What if?

What if I could meet someone in the art world to chat with?
I’d want to meet Leonardo Da Vinci because he did everything brilliantly: paint, sculpt, invent, write, engineer.

This would be hard though considering he died 550 years before I was born.

What if I could have one wish granted for the benefit of all mankind?
Easy. World Peace.

What if I could travel anywhere in the world?
I’d travel to all the islands of the world…on a yacht.

What if I could live in a period other than the present, for 24 hours?
I’m not sure I’d want to…but clothing from the 1940’s is cool, so I suppose I could live in that period for 24 hours, wearing big shoulder pads in my coat.

What if I could makeover three areas of my body?
1. My mind: specifically the part that remembers
2. My belly: a hard, flat version would be good
3. My eyesight: back to 20/20

What if I could become an animal for 24 hours?
Easy. A Humpback whale.

A mammal that lives in the water, has its own language and sings, how cool is that? (Rightfully immortalized in Star Trek IV, by the way; best save the whales film ever made.)

What if I could bring someone back to life for 24 hours?
I’m too pragmatic. What good would this do?

Thanks for sharing a little bit more about yourself. I'm thinking the yacht response proves that you have chosen the correct user name. There is something almost comical about severe shoulder pads, but they do make a waist look slimmer. And whales are awesome- that would never have occurred to me... you are a true water sign!

I enjoyed all your responses..I'm with you, what good would it do to bring back someone for 24 hours..

Hey Harriet said...

I enjoyed reading your "what if?" answers.

Your blog layout appears to be a little bit different every time I check in. New little things added. It's looking really good!

Fun post! It's always neat to see how people answer these things...

And, I'd love to know how you got 3 columns on your blog, was it hard?
Looking great, my friend!

YEA I loved your answers & I only tagged you because you are such a good sport I knew you would play along. Not to mention I had a feeling there might be some visual aide as well :~)

I loved whales as a kid, did a huge project on humpbacks in 5th grade actually. They are amazing creatures!

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to sit around a table with a group of genius such as Leonardo, and have a good chat about stuff. Who would your group be around the table?
