Which Would You Choose?

On the way home from a family event this weekend, my middle son challenged us with a thoughtful question. “If you could have the traits of any animal in the world, what animal would it be and why? You would still be you but you could do things the animal does.”

I responded, “I would be a bi

“AND YOU CAN’T SAY A BIRD SO YOU CAN FLY BECAUSE EVERYONE SAYS THAT.”

“Dang.”

Not only did he want us to respond, but he wanted us to explain what we would use the animal’s features for.

My son said he would begin, “I would choose an octopus. Then I could use camouflage, I could squeeze in to tight spaces and I would be strong, I would also have a defense mechanism and I could regenerate body parts.”

That answer was so good we all took our time deciding on a creature.

Finally, I chose a dolphin. I am truly at home in the ocean. If I had a dolphin’s features I could stay underwater for a long time. I could swim fast, ride the waves and use echolocation. I would also be able to communicate with other dolphins using clicking and whistling sounds.

Dolphins can stand cold water, which would enable me to swim longer in to the season. I could help drowning humans get to safety, I would be smart, graceful and I would always be smiling. What could be better?

I am now passing the question on to you and can’t wait to hear your answer!
