Once again, I'm late to the party with a tag. Actually, almost a year late, because I've had this post drafted since I first started blogging, and I've just never got around to posting it. Rereading it now, I can't think why I never published it, because it's a tag you really can personalise to death, and I'd love to read it if anyone else has done it already!
If I were a gemstone, I'd be an opal, changes depending on the light, often considered bad luck.
If I were a scent, I'd be the smell of petrol. You know it's bad for you, but sometimes you can't help it.
If I were a pair of shoes, I would be Converse XX-Hi, unusual, over-the-top and yet somehow admirable to a select few.
If I were the weather, I would be thunder in the night. Scares the living shit out of some people, but others just put their head between their legs and it all goes away.
If I were a facial expression, I'd be a raised eyebrow. A sign of disapproval, confusion, surprise, a suggestive gesture towards the bedroom - you never quite know what it really means.
If I were a car, I'd be a Ford Cortina, classic and everyone wanted one back when it was cool, now it's considered a hunk of junk that never really worked.
If I were a time of day, I'd be 4am, when the world is at its quietest, and the only people still awake are mad/insomniacs/on night shifts.
If I were a month, I'd be October. The strangest things happen in October.
If I were a place, I would be Cardiff Bay. Few appreciate it for what it is, others think it an eyesore.
If I were a liquid, I'd be Dr Pepper. What's the worst that could happen?
If I were a taste, I'd be spearmint chewing gum. Because I'm addicted to the stuff.
If I were a sea animal, I'd be a dolphin. Life would be infinitely better if I were a dolphin.
If I were a food, I would be pasta. Lovely on occasions but if you tried to live with it, you'd regret it.
If I were a colour, I would be purple. The quirky one that pops up when nobody's expecting it.
If I were a musical instrument, I would be an acoustic guitar. I'm a sucker for acoustic solos.
If I were a flower, I would be a fuchsia. The one flower that hangs its head regardless of the weather.
If I were a song, I'd be Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance. Awake and unafraid, asleep or dead?
If I were a planet, I would be Uranus. Because I've still not grown up.
If I were an object, I would be a casino chip. Worth a lot in the right places, but the minute you take it out of its environment, it's worthless.
If I were a fruit, I'd be a starfruit. You don't see them that often and the novelty soon wears off, but they're nice to have around.
If I were a sound, I would be the sound of playing cards being shuffled. I love card games and the shuffling card sound is calming.
If I were a day of the week, I'd be Thursday. Because everyone will have picked the weekend and I wanted to break the mould.
What would you be?
