If I were a...

I've been tagged by Mojavi to participate in a serious experiment. No, not really, it's just a fun game. Here's how it works...

I pick 5 of the following occupations and complete the sentiment, adding an occupation of my choice to the end.

THE OCCUPATIONS:
If I could be a scientist...
If I could be a farmer...
If I could be a musician...
If I could be a doctor...
If I could be a painter...
If I could be a gardener...
If I could be a missionary...
If I could be a chef...
If I could be an archaeologist...
If I could be an architect...
If I could be a linguist...
If I could be a psychologist...
If I could be a librarian...
If I could be an athlete...
If I could be a lawyer...
If I could be an innkeeper...
If I could be a professor...
If I could be a writer...
If I could be a llama-rider...
If I could be a bonnie pirate...
If I could be a servicemember...
If I could be a business owner...
If I could be an actor...
If I could be an agent...
If I could be video game designer...
If I could be photographer...
If I could be a circus performer...
If I could be a spy...
If I could be a fashion designer...
If I could be a high school student again... (Gerah)
If I could be a clothing designer for very small dogs... (Diana)
If I could be a personal assistant... (mojavi)
If I could be a blogger... (Goofy Girl)

And now, my contribution to the madness:
(to be read limerick-style)

If I could be a video game designer...
I wouldn't make a dime,
cause all the video game "testing"
would take up all my time.

If I could be an archaeologist...
I'd dig up lots of bones,
I'd find a brand new dinosaur
and keep her for my own.

If I could be a chef...
I'd bake and bake some more,
you'd have to get a crowbar
to fit me through the door.

If I could be a clothing designer for very small dogs...
I'd outfit lots of pups,
I'd make them tiny belts and shoes
and hats like buttercups.

If I could be a musician...
I'd play the drums like Peart*,
but if I ever tried to sing,
I'll bet your ears would hurt.

*That would be Neil Peart, the drummer for Rush, for those of not quite as old as me. ;-)

Goofy - those aren't limericks, but ARE very clever poems (limericks are 5 lines and rhyme in an "aabba" pattern - hey, we need to know this for Trivial Pursuit, right???). Anyway - those are hilarious!

I am still coming up with my meme thingie - thanks for raising the bar. Yeah, thanks, alot. :-)
