William Teach, the famous blogging

William Teach, the famous blogging pirate has tagged me for this fun meme. Here is how it works:
Immediately following there is a list of 18 19 20 different occupations. You must select at least 5 of them (feel free to select more). You may add more if you like to your list before you pass it on (after you select 5 of the items as it was passed to you). Each one begins with "If I could be..." Of the 5 you selected, you are to finish each phrase with what you would do as a member of that profession.

For example, if the selected occupation was "pirate" you might take the phrase "If I could be a pirate..." and add to it "I would sail the 7 Seas, dating lasses from around the worlde." See how easy that is? Here's the list:

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 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 an astronaut...

So here is my reply, and yes this is a cop out...

If I could be a librarian, I would read a book on how to become a llama-rider. Then I would travel the world as a llama-rider because if I could be a llama-rider I am sure I would be unique. And with such a unique adventure, I am sure I could find enough material to write a book. Then if I could be a writer, I would be invited to teach at an university although my only qualification is that I put a few sentences together about llamas no less. If I then could be a professor, I would torture my students with excessive pop quizzes and required essays on a meaningful life changing event in their lives. And I would not grade on a curve. At all. Then I would quit mid-semester and take all my grading notes and rolls and leave the students and the faculty to have to recreate the course work from scratch in order for them to receive credit (and no, haven't thought about this much). After that fiasco, it it is only obviously that I would have to be a bonnie-pirate and sail the 7 seas and tag 3 other people to do this awful meme...

Let's see....





(Thanks William for the thought, now just wait for my turn to "tag" you with something...)

Update: Kris has hers up and she even did it like it was susposed to be done. Go check it out.
