    When my wife and I had a cat, it would sleep approximately fourteen hours a day ... we'd often say, "I wish I was a cat. That looks like a pretty good life.":

    I would rather be a bird so I could go exploring without using my legs as I have bad arthritis in both knees. Imagine the fun you could have exploring !

    I would be a hoverfly for about an hour and half after which time I think I'd be totally exhausted and ready for a sit down. But in that 90 minutes such aerial gymnastics I'd perform! From flower to flower like a crazed plane, sipping nectar here and there as if there was no tomorrow (there isn't!); shooting off suddenly to stop in midair, somehow, some way, hovering just above a bloom, just above your hand, just above your finger before, with the gentlest most careful descent, settling on your skin almost weightless.

    If I could choose any animal I would choose to be an alligator. I think it would be great to bask in the sun all day and take a swim when I wanted while seeing everything under the water.

      I love this answer! Plus, you wouldn't have many enemies! I personally would love to be a whale or dolphin. I think it would be so neat to get to live in the ocean for just one day. It would feel like a different planet, I'm sure.

    As a writer, I have to wear many hats to deliver dialogue and prose in a way that the reader doesn't know I'm there. Not only that, I have to do this for a multitude of characters, situations, and settings. For this reason, I would have to choose a chameleon: always there, but unseen in the background.
