It’s a great way to get to know someone. Ask them what vegetable they would be, or what song if they could be any song? Every week I ask a different pal what would they be if they were a [blank].

If I WERE A…
FRUIT or VEGETABLE, I would be: lemon (I love to give a good pucker).
MEAL, I would be: oatmeal (just the thing to get people going… teehee).
BEVERAGE, I would be: homemade lemonade, with a straw please.
DESSERT, I would be: peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream — with buttery crust, not biscuits; and a tad juicy, not dry; and not too sweet, because the peaches are in season and perfectly ripe and sweet; and the ice cream is creamy and dense without lots of air whipped into it. (Perhaps I just should have said shortbread.)
APPLIANCE, I would be: a massage chair.
ROOM IN MY HOME, I would be: the TV/game room, because that’s where we laugh the most.
PLANT, I would be: a sunflower.
COLOR, I would be: celedon green.
SONG, I would be: Celebration!
FICTIONAL CHARACTER, I would be: Peter Pan (since Julia Roberts played him, it’s okay.)
