I found this little book on the resource shelf at work today and thought it looked like a lot of fun.
It’s called “If… Questions for the Game of Life” by Evelyn McFarlane & James Saywell.
Let’s just say it tickled my fancy.
So for my post today, I am going to close my eyes and randomly choose 10 questions from the book to answer. Then I am going to challenge you to answer a question from the book and link back to my post.
So here goes…….
Q1: If you could teach your children only one lesson in life, what would it be?
Don’t lick the beaters until the mixer is turned off. Don’t stick your tongue on icy objects. Don’t play with fire unless you wish to get burned. Don’t drunk text or call. Don’t do anything you wouldn’t want to have to explain to your own kids in 20 years time. Don’t forget to thank people for the little things. Don’t expect things to be handed to you on a platter. Don’t be ungrateful. Don’t forget to brush your teeth… you hair and your clothes. Don’t be a hater.
But I guess the one thing I want all my children to learn is “Always be true to yourself. Thankful for what you have. And look for the good in every situation (no matter how bad it looks right now).”
Q2: If you were to die in a public place, exactly what spot would you choose?
What sort of question is that?
Nobody wants to think about their death, even if it is a natural part of life (there’s an oxymoron for you). I guess if I could choose to die in a public place it would be somewhere with my family. There would be a camera in my hand and I’d be surrounded by beauty.
Q3: If you could master one type of cuisine, which one would you choose?
I don’t think it would matter because the Teen probably wouldn’t eat it anyway. lol Cooking really isn’t my thing. I can cook to survive but I don’t do it for enjoyment. lol
Q4: If you could change one thing about your city or town or neighbourhood, what would you alter?
I’d have to say that I’d knock the heads of those who own the shops together to get them to realise that our town is not rich and you can’t charge big city rents or bonds to lease the stores. Then more shops would stay open and people would be encouraged to shop locally rather than driving an hour to get things cheaper.
Q5: If you could have been the hero from any war, which war would it be, and for what heroic deed?
I’d like to be the hero of the Battle of Quark on the planet Obish in the year 2098. I would sweep in on my flying roller skates, snatch up the blinkin-transmitter and blast off back to the safe haven of Bondon where we would use the said transmitter to play old Elvis records.
Q6: If you were to be married to someone who is famous now, who would you pick to be your new spouse?
I’m sure I had this exact same conversation with a client the other day. lol
George Clooney rates a mention but he pales in comparison to William Peterson (mmmm Grissom).
Q7: If you were on trial and someone you know (who is not a lawyer) had to act as your legal representative, who would you want to defend you?
I’d have to pick one or two of our disability clients. After a few minutes of speaking with them, the judge would be smiling so broadly from ear to ear that he would instantly be in a great mood and dismiss the case.
Q8: If you could retract one lie you have told in your life, which would it be?
I really am 21 you know.
Q9: If you were elected to be leader of a foreign country tomorrow, what country would you want it to be and what would be your first official act?
I would like to lead Hawaii. The first thing that I would do would be to declare a national day just for laying on the beach.
Q10: If you had to be homeless for one year, where would you want to be?
I would want to be in a climate that was temperate and there are lots of parks and bridges in town. The people would be friendly and believed in doing good to others.
Those questions were hard. Seriously.
Okay, now for some fun… here are your questions:
1. If you could arrange a rock concert with any three musicians or groups to play on the same bill, who would you invite?
2. If you had to cancel one hour of the day, every day, which hour would you eliminate?
3. If you could change one thing to make life easier for you own gender, what would you change?
