An older survey

If I were a stone, I would be malachite.
If I were a tree, I would be an aspen.
If I were a bird, I would be a chickadee, small but so cheerful.
If I were an insect, I would be an ant.
If I were a machine, I would be scanner. Maybe. Or a copy machine.
If I were a tool, I would be a pencil.
If I were a fruit, I would be... oh, I already am a fruit.
If I were a flower, I would be a forget-me-not.
If I were a kind of weather, I would be icefog.
If I were a mythical creature, I would be a dryad.
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a harp, or possibly an oboe.
If I were a kind of profession, I'd be a think-tank engineer for a toy company that also happens to produce nuclear weapons, Soylent Green and solar panels.
If I were an animal, I'd be a lynx.
If I were a color, I would be a heather-gray-leaning towards blue.
If I were an emotion, I would be joy.
If I were a state or feeling, I would be hope.
If I were a sound, I would be a laugh.
If I were an element, I would be carbon. Do you have any idea how useful carbon is?
If I were anything in the world, I would be me.
