What If?

Just thought we would have some more fun with "What If" questions. I'm choosing ones I found online that I find most interesting and would love to see how all my blogging buddies answer too! Feel free to join in!

If you had a chance to choose a poor (man/woman) as a (husband/wife) from your culture or a rich (man/woman) from another culture, which would you choose?
Do I really care if my spouse is from a different culture?  Nope, not even if he were poor, so of course I'll take a rich foreigner.  I've seen some pretty hot guys from Japan. And besides, any time you can expand on your knowledge and learn more of another culture, that's a good thing.  I'm guessing that Scots aren't really considered a different culture, right?  Dang, 'cause those accents really turn me on.
If you got into traffic accident, what would you do at first?
Besides panic?  Well, if I found myself to be in one piece, I'd probably want to check on the other people involved, but I guess I should call 911 first, eh?
If you could be God, what would you do for humanity?
I would never want to be God, but if I had a bit of God's powers, I think the one thing I would do is take away all sickness, from the simplest cold to the most horrible disease.
If you could receive praise from a person, what person would it be?
Anyone can hand you praise, but I think it's the person who you least expect to give it to you that would mean the most.  In my case, Jimmy.
What kind of praise would you like to receive?
Two things that come to mind, and again, involving Jimmy.  One, that he would praise me for being a good mother, and two, that he would admit that I'm funny.  I'm not holding my breath for either!
If you were a color, what color would you be and why?
I would definitely be red, because it's bold, which is probably a good description of my personality.
If you had time machine and you could be transported to any time, the past or the future. What time would you choose?
Oh wow, this one is intriguing, and one I think will tickle Nikki.  I know it didn't work out very well for Marty McFly or Peggy Sue, but I would so love to experience the mid 1950s.  It was such a simpler time when being around your family was valued more than the TV and the latest video game.
If you could have dinner with anyone (dead OR alive), who would you choose, and why?
Right now I'd love to sit down and have dinner with Buffie, but I'm assuming this was meant to be someone famous.  In that case, I'd have to say Nora Roberts, if only to thank her for the hundreds of hours of enjoyment her books have brought me over the years.
If you could live forever on earth as it is now, would you? Why or why not?
If I had my health it's something I might consider. But... would everyone else I love get to keep living too?  Because if it was just me, going through lifetimes and losing the people I loved it probably wouldn't be worth it.
If you could have a free chip put in your brain so that you would automatically be able to speak and understand another language besides English, which language would it be and why?
Vietnamese, so I'd know what the nail techs were saying about me while giving me a pedicure. Just kidding! Probably Italian, since it's my heritage and I'm ashamed that not one person in my family can speak or understand it besides my sister-in-law.
If you were the Queen or King of Britain for a day, what would you do?
Ban the preparation and eating of steak and kidney pudding!
If you were down on your luck, would you seek the advice of a palm reader?
I AM down on my luck and I haven't stuck my hand out for anyone to read yet.  If I could meet John Edward I would be happy for him to channel my dead relatives though!

    this is a fun way to get into your head! I may answer these one day...but my tooth is hurting and it is making me cranky! so answering may not be the true answers lol

  • Bridget

    Hey Tiney Bo Beanie! I just got home. I read part of your post but I'm kind of tired right now so I will finish reading and comment more in the morning. I just wanted to let you know that I did check everyone's blogs before crashing!
    Is the storm over yet?

  • Naz

    I need more coffee because these questions are just going to make me think. In fact, I'll just drink the coffee and pass on the questions. Sometimes it's just better not to think.

  • Justine

    OH Naz, how I wish you had a blog so I could creep up on you and bug you a bit! At least you're not a "blurker" though! {{{{{{{{{{Naz}}}}}}}}}}

    Justine :o )

  • Anonymous

    Justine these questions are heavy girl! I can't wait to answer them! (lol) I'm a sucker for a good question!


    ps. I loved your answers! I read them last night but was too tired to comment.... Alright! here's the truth! I had two glasses of wine and could not keep my eyes open or my thoughts pure! lol.


  • Shelia

    Morning, Justiney!! You're my favorite hoot, girl, and make me laugh daily! We are alot alike because I agreed with you on lots of your answers. I'm going to have to come over and punch your hubby in the stomach!! I can tell you're a great mom and I KNOW you're F-U-N-N-Y!!
    Love ya and be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  • French

    Hmmmm ok well here goes nothing! I have already taken my sleeping pills so this should be fun....First who cares if they are foreign they gots the money I will find the time! I would like to dine with Bob Hope and Dean MArtin, and lucille ball....IF I got in an accident I 'd cry! check the others than call 911 ASAP! My question to GOD would be do something about the prejudice in tis world its still out of hand! Spanish for me I already speak French and they are ver close so should be easy to learn right? Oh the keybards in 3D now definitely time to crash!!! Hugs French;)

  • Smilingsal

    I've been to England and steak and kidney pie is delicious!

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    Well let me tell you, if Mike hasn't figured out yet that you're a fabulous mother and hilariously funny, then let me pass this knowledge on to him! He probably, being a man, assumes that you know you are, so he just doesn't say it.

    I love the question about marrying someone from a different culture. I would do that in a heartbeat and have dated a couple foreign men. I find them incredibly appealing!


  • Justine

    Kady, do you think I should tell JIMMY that I'm now married to someone named Mike? LOL

    Justine :o )

  • Anonymous

    So HAVE you eaten my babies heads yet?????????

    I'm gonna have to start a campaign so don't you keep skirting around the subject.

    I'll have to start thinking about the what ifs too - but too many other blooy things to do and not enough time on the laptop to do them in - not if i want to stay married that it!

  • Penny

    I loved the answer about you wanting to know what the vietnamese women said about you. I hear that!

    When I thought about the question about who would I want to have dinner with alive or dead, I know this sounds strange, but it would be fun to have my previous 2 dogs that have gone on to doggie heaven all in the same room with the ones I have now. Even if just for an hour or two. It would be fun to see them all interact with each other. I know, I'm crazy!

    I'm sorry Jimmy is so blind, but I think what Kady said makes sense. Men assume so much! He knows your funny and a GREAT mom.

  • Bridget

    I think Tootsie should answer them while she is cranky...could be fun. LOL
    I'm glad to know I was not your only blurker last night. Maybe Donna was blurking at the same time. No, she had already passed out. j/k!
    And Shelia, I'll hold Jimmy down while you give him a strong right to the gut!
    Sal likes Kidney pie so I think you should break those baby heads open and go for it. Have you tried the pickled onions yet? When do we get the rundown on all of your goodies for Gail?
    I'm going to copy your questions off now and give them a try. I'll let you know if I post mine. BTW, I want to be red too. Katie was just commenting last night that she and I have a red problem. I have a red computer, she has red hair, I have a red wallet, red toes, etc. etc.

  • Tootsie

    hi. I am having issues with my soon as I can fix it I will be back this computer is the worst!

  • Raxx - A day in the life

    OMG! Did i blurk earlier?? I read this post and just now realise i did not comment! and I had every intention of copying these questions!

    Until my carnival vibe started to flow!

    Maybe it was the 5hr power outage that caused it!

  • Lisa

    Geez!! That is one heck of an involved post. Im not sure I can think that much to answer those. But I totally loved reading your answers!! I may answer those questions in a post this week when I find myself in a blog lull. Memes and questions like that are great for when one is having a blogfart.

  • SchmeckyGirl

    Ug hate John Edward.
    You crack me up. Vietnamese! lol.

    Buffie!??!!? Buffie!?!??! Wouldn't you want to sit with me so you can actually hit me when I annoy you?
