From Allegra

Lovely Allegra Smith over at Beading Stars posted this, and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to answer the question (at the end) myself.
If I were a month I’d be June
If I were a day I’d be Sunday
If I were a time of day I’d be sunset
If I were a planet I’d be a star

If I were a sea animal I’d be a starfish
If I were a direction I’d be West
If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a chaise with down-filled cushions
If I were a liquid I’d be a latte granita

If I were a gem stone I’d be a Ceylon sapphire
If I were a tree I’d be a madrona
If I were a tool I’d be a hot glue gun
If I were a flower I’d be a Rose

If I were an element of weather I’d be a sunbeam
If I were a musical instrument I’d be a Martin guitar
If I were a color I’d be cobalt blue
If I were an emotion I’d be passion

If I were a fruit I’d be a raspberry
If I were a sound I’d be a cat's purr
If I were an element I’d be Water
If I were a car I’d be a Mercedes 280SL

If I were a food I’d be chocolate
If I were a place I’d be a beach
If I were a material I’d be satin
If I were a taste I’d be cinnamon

If I were a scent I’d be a vanilla
If I were a body part I’d be the eyes
If I were a facial expression I’d be a smile
If I were a song I’d be a ballad

If I were a bird I'd be a seagull
If I were a gift I'd be a book
If I were a street I'd be Boulevard de la Garoupe
If I were a door I'd be half-ajar

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be flip-flops

And what would you be?

I love this! I'd be a hot glue gun and flip flops any day. Oh how I miss my sandals this winter. sigh!

I know what you mean about being under par.. less than 100%. : p

Oh, you are totally a ballad! I love this post. I'm going to checkout Beading Starts. I think I have before, I'm such a surfer, but not sure...

So lovely and so you! I am glad you answer it, isn't it comforting to know how even in the most difficult times we seem to find simple ways to comfort each other and bring smiles in a way that allow us to get to know each other better? Sending you a hug from here, have a peaceful, tranquil day.

I loved this, too! I'm thinking about doing it as well -- I love a good meme!

This is so wonderful.
Glue gun? That made me laugh so hard!!!! And a chaise with down filled cushions? I bet that just came to you as well.
You are so cute. I love this!!!!

Have a great day, my Starfish friend. (they are the cutest too!)
