If I were...

"I used to just crastinate. Then I decided to go pro."

As I've mentioned before, I have loads and loads of half-written, unpublished posts. Time has been taken with homework and other obligations for the past couple of years while I've been in my Executive MBA program, which I'll write about at some point. But until then, I think I ought to just start publishing some of those posts. Get myself back in the swing of writing. So here's a fun one to start.

If I were a month, I'd be April.
If I were a day of the week, I'd be Friday.
If I were a time of day, I'd be dusk.
If I were a sea animal, I'd be a beluga.
If I were a direction, I'd be west.
If I were a gemstone, I'd be a sapphire nestled between two diamonds.
If I were a tree, I'd be a redwood or a jacaranda or a Japanese maple or a Sequoia. Because who can decide when it comes to these exceptional organisms?
If I were a tool, I'd be a power drill.
If I were a flower, I'd be a gardenia on a summer afternoon in southern California.
If I were a kind of weather, I'd be a cumulus cloud on a crisp autumn day.
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a cello.
If I were a color, I'd be sky blue.
If I were a fruit, I'd be a strawberry.
If I were a classic element, I'd be earth.
If I were a periodic table element, I'd be oxygen.
If I were an amino acid, I'd be methionine.
If I were a food, I'd be cheese, oh glorious cheese.
If I were a place, I'd be home.
If I were a material, I'd be lace or maybe wool.
If I were a scent, I'd be lily of the valley.
If I were an herb, I'd be rosemary.
If I were an item of clothing, I'd be a scarf.
If I were a song, I'd be Ashokan Farewell.
