If I were a natural phenomenon, I would be...
thunder, impressive, loud, easily forgotten, and harder to portray than his vivid, attention cousin lightning.
If I were a metal, I would be...
mercury, fluid, beautiful, and toxic.
If I were an animal, I would be...
the raccoon, a stealthy, clever survivor at home in the constructed world of man, yet capable of raising an unearthly din and fighting fiercely when needed.
If I were a color, I would be...
grey, which spans everything from the luster of silver to the dinginess of a filthy cloth. It is easy to assume it is unimportant or unimpressive when not looking at it, but one is reminded of its importance when confronted with it.
If I were a mythological being, I would be...
at home in my element, existing only in the realm of stories, where the lack of hard evidence I leave behind would not be a hindrance.
If I were a famous human being, I would be...
recieving my just rewards for my skill and dedication to my craft.
If I were a human activity, I would be...
discussion, by which ideas breed, multiply, and seek out new minds to colonize. It is in the interactions of humans with each other that the most interesting stories arise.
If I were a work of art, I would be...
unhappy, for I wish to be the artist and not his product. The artist contains within himself an infinitude of works, each waiting to be summoned forth at the appropriate moment.
If I were a weapon, I would be...
a dagger, slipped into the back when not expected. Simple, direct, and efficient, yet possessed of a deadly mystique and flirting with the boundaries of propriety.
If I were an object , I would be...
capable of modifying myself, as I would be written in an interpreted language with an eval() function.
