If I Were

Please take a big historic breath.

I have broken every single chain letter I've ever received, even the ones that threatened dire consequences or promised big return.

Now, I'm participating in a meme--thanks, Laura. That 'thanks' was fully loaded.

Meme? I first saw this word in October, right after I started blogging. Does one write a meme? Participate in a meme? Create? Here's a helpful little blog about memes. Blog. Meme. Tag.

Who created this vocabulary? Where's the sustenance to these words, some syllabic punch?

Here we go:

If I were an ice cream I'd be sherbet because I can't follow rules.

If I were a fried food I'd be tempura. Does that count?

If I were an extreme sport I'd be . . . what are my options here? Anybody know anything about this?

If I were a retail store I'd be Bergdorf Goodman. Of course.

If I were a vegetable, I'd be daikon radish, tart and tangy that will do your body good.

If I were a fruit, I'd be a cashew. . . that's right. The cashew or caju is native to Brazil and the thing we call a nut? The seed of a fruit.

If I were a building I'd be the Statue of Liberty and starting letting the tired and weary back in.

If I were a car, I'd be a sturdy blue Volvo wagon, circa 1990.

I hadn't seen that meme before. It's a tough one!

Hey, MM --

This is posted (by me) in the comments on my blog, but I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it:

" ... many thanks for participating in my first 'passing of the meme'. Don't know if you read Ronnie's comment, but she says she passed it to me incorrectly, so we will all need to do this over. The right way. Heh, heh."

Oh no! The matron she is wringing her hands in despair, uncertain if she can follow Instruction, twice.
