If I were a: MONTH, I would be JUNE. Not because I was born in June (which I was), but because the month is so unpredictable. The sweltering heat, the anticipation of the monsoons, cooling down, puddles, waterlogging. It is a fun month, if you can handle it.
If I were a: DAY, I would be THURSDAY, of course. I was born on a Thusday. Thursday is in the middle of the work week, but is close enough for you to start making plans for the weekend. The fun of being there, the excitement of looking forward to something new.
If I were a: TIME OF DAY, I would be EVENING. The time when I come alive. Time with my kids, time to read, time to write. Time to be myself.
If I were a: SEASON, I would be SUMMER. I crib about the heat and the humidity, but unless it is really hot, the rains wouldn't come and the crops wouldn't grow. That's me. I can be irritating at times, but serve a useful purpose. .....and, I like to belive I am hot in my own way.
If I were a: PLANET, I would be JUPITER. Jupiter is the largest one, which is not me. But it rules professional gratification, which is totally me.
If I were a: DIRECTION, I would be UP AND AHEAD. Don't tell me that is not really a direction, but I prefer to look forward and not look back, so there you are.
If I were a: TREE, I would be MARGOSA. A large tree, which shelters lots of birds, provides shade for people on tropical highways, and has more medicinal uses than most other trees put together. I also find he pretty, though not many people agree.
If I were an: ANIMAL, I would be CHEETHA. She's fast and loves running. I would love to go like her someday.
If I were a: MUSICAL INSTRUMENT, I would be DRUMS. Or something equally accessible. Something that doen't need much practice, but which you can really practice on too if you so wish.
If I were a: FRUIT, I would be MANGO. I am an Indian, 'nuff said.
If I were a: FOOD, I would be BOMBAY STREET FOOD. Something that is whipped up in a jiffy, is wonderfully tasty, and which is affordable for (almost) all.
If I were a: COLOR, I would be GREEN. I love plants. Can I choose any other colour?
If I were a: BOOK, I would be a WiP. Lots of work yet to do done on me, but getting there.
If I were a: SONG, I would be TWINKLE, TWINKE LITTLE STAR,perhaps. A simple song, but deceptive in its simplicity.
If I were a: MOVIE, I would be one of those complicated ones that nobody ever really understands.
If I were a: FLOWER, I would be LANTANA. Not the most showy of plants, but one that grows on you. And it keeps away mosquitos and other pests, and attracts butterflies.
If I were a: FACIAL EXPRESSION, I would be
If you figure out what that means, do let me know.
I'm not tagging anyone because I am not sure how many of you have already done it. But please feel free to pick it up if you want to do it.
