I got this idea from a random blog post list, so hang on with me, all right? Basically, I'm going to find a whole bunch of "what if" questions using the Internet and answer them. It's like a survey sort of thing. A game. So here we go:
What if you only had 24 hours to live?
I would make a will, make arrangements for getting my books out in the world, figure out what I wanted my funeral to be like, and then I suppose say goodbye to everyone.
What if the whole world was listening to you for just one moment?
... I don't know. I think I'd probably freeze up, rather than say something deep and meaningful or whatever. That is a freak ton of pressure.
What if you could ask God one question?
I'd ask him if he could send something good to my family. Not really a question, I guess, more of a request, but I don't have any questions right now to ask him.
What if you could be another person for a day?
I think I'd like to be J.K. Rowling. Just for a day, just to see what it's like.
What if you could change one thing about yourself?
I would ask... to be stronger? I think. I don't know, that one would require some deep thought.
What if you could change one thing about the world?
This is like if you asked me what I would do if I were God. Like, no. I'm not God for a reason. With questions like this, you think you might do something really great and amazing, but you might actually make everything go wrong. You don't know what's up.
What if you could choose how you die?
I'd want to die peacefully and painlessly, in my sleep or something.
What if you could meet any one famous person you wanted?
J.K. Rowling, again.
What if you were abducted by aliens?
...is it the Doctor? I hope it's the Doctor.
What if you could travel to visit just one place in time?
I would.... I would want to visit my kids, in the future.
What if you had the choice between solving world hunger or repairing the ozone?
This is probably the wrong answer, but I think I'd repair the ozone, because I feel like a lot more would be affected by that, through the future. I don't know.
What if you were offered your ideal job on the other side of the country?
...I would want to know why being an author suddenly requires that I live in North Dakota, or wherever "the opposite" is of New Mexico.
What if you could be granted one wish?
I would wish peace on my family.
What if you won $1,000,000?
I would buy my mom a new house, and put the rest into savings I suppose.
What if you had to choose between your sight and your hearing?
I'd pick hearing. I'm a musician, and a talker, and I need to hear.
What if you could bring one fictional character to life?
I would bring Peeta Mellark to life. Because even if he doesn't love me, or whatever, the world would be a better place for having a Peeta Mellark.
What if you could receive either great wisdom or great wealth?
Wisdom. Wisdom is good.
What if you had to sacrifice yourself to save your mother?
Um, I would?
What if you were given the option of living forever on Earth as it is now?
I don't think so... Earth is pretty messed up sometimes, and anyway, living forever is usually not all that cool, according to most literature ever. I mean, seeing as I believe in a much better afterlife, that would be a stupid choice.
What if you could play the main character in one movie already made?
I'd like to try and play Katniss Everdeen. Because I'd like to see if I can express her and get into her head properly.
What if you could have any job you wanted?
I'd be a famous bestselling author, duh.
What if you had to choose one animal to eliminate from the world?
... spiders? Or would that be bad.
What if you could have one superpower?
I would be an empath, an emotion reader. That's my power of choice.
Okay, maybe it's not the ultimate in what if questions, haha, but I think it's fun. I hope you liked it. Thanks for reading, and come back next time for our December humor post!
