He Could Fix the Big Mess

From Sunday Stealing


IF YOU COULD:

Q. Travel anywhere, where would it be?

A. Ireland, Scotland, and England.

Q. Meet anyone, who would it be?

A. I have a pen pal I've been corresponding with over the Internet for 14 years; it would be really nice to meet her in person.

Q. Bring anyone dead back to life, who would it be?

A. Jesus, so he could fix the big mess that has been made in his name. I am pretty sure he didn't mean for so many of the so-called Christians to honor the wealthy, demonize the poor, not want their tax money to feed children, do away with education, or eliminate other "entitlements." I think, in fact, he says the opposite - help the poor, give away all you have, etc. Somehow people have the Pharisees mixed up with Christ.

Q. Be anyone for a day, who would it be?

A. I'm pretty content to just stay me, if that's Ok.

Q. Get anything for free for the rest of your life what would it be?

A. Food.

Q. Change one thing about your life what would it be?

A. My health.

Q. Have any superpower what would it be?

A. The ability to see very far into the future (not the near future, but the far future, like 250 years from now). I am curious as to how we turn out.

Q. Be any animal for a day which would you be?

A. A human being.

Q. Date anyone who would it be?

A. It is sad no one comes to mind.

Q. Change one thing about the world what would it be?

A. I would eliminate guns. All of them.

Q. Live in any fictional universe which would you choose?

A. Middle Earth, of course.

Q. Eliminate one of your human needs which would you get rid of?

A. The one that deals with, um, elimination.

Q. Change one thing about your physical appearance what would it be?

A. I'd weigh a lot less.

Q. Change one of your personality traits which would you choose?

A. I'd be a little less quick-tempered.

Q. Be talented at anything instantly what would you choose?

A. Playing the piano.

Q. Forget one event in your life which would you choose?

A. Some things are better left unsaid.

Q. Erase an event from history (make it so it never happened) which would you choose?

A. I think if you change one thing you alter a great many others, and I would not want that power. I think, though, if I must choose, that never having slavery, which means going way way way back in time, might be a good thing to eliminate.

Q. Have any hair/eye/skin color, which would you choose?

A. I'm okay with what I have, though a little less "soft white" might be nice.

Q. Be any weight/body type, which would you choose?

A. I would weigh about 100 pounds less than I do now, and be athletic.

Q. Live in any country/city, where would you choose?

A. I am happy where I am.

Q. Change one law in your country, which would you change?

A. I'd make voting mandatory.

Q. Be any height, which would you choose?

A. I would like to be about five inches taller, so I could utilize the top shelves.

Q. Have any job in the world, which would you choose?

A. Head of a publishing company.

Q. Have anything appear in your pocket right now, what would it be?

A. A leprechaun that could then grant me as many wishes as I wanted.

Q. Have anyone beside you right now, who would it be?

A. My husband. Always.

  3. I don't get the whole gun thing either. I often wonder what Jesus(and Allah too) would actually think and say about people and behavior.

  5. One of my Pen Pals came from Australia one year. It was lovely. She eventually met up with the rest of the quilters from our group in Nashville, for the quilt show. Hope you get to meet up with yours. And the gun thing.... it's dreadful. But we have such a gun culture. It's just a massive and pervasive problem for America.
