[Day 6] The Animal in Me (If you were an animal, what would you be and why?)

This is one of the “beauty pageant” questions out of the 30 and seriously speaking, at the back of my head I said “Huh?!” when I read this question because I am not the type of person that can be a contestant in a beauty pageant, it’s not me; plus I don’t want to. Either way since its part of the challenge, let’s answer it shall we?

If I were an animal, I would certainly be a hawk. Why? Because I have very poor eyesight and hawks are known to have visual acuity. Is that all? But wait, there’s more (thank you infomercials for always offering more!) I do not just want to have such visual acuity as much as I really want to see the world in its full Technicolor, without depending on the aid of eyeglasses. I want to really see clearly how the flowers bloom, the true colors of the sunset, God’s canvas. I know some would think “what is this person blabbing about?” I know some of you would understand, being almost visually impaired has its shortcomings and since I am born with it, I’ve known about it all my life.

Visual acuity aside, I would certainly be a hawk because these birds are peaceful, though it is known to be a violent predator. Peace is something that I always try to maintain; I want to be at peace not just with myself but with the few people around me. I can’t stand the tension, it makes me lose my focus and I’m already a scattered brain as it is.

I thank you! (Isn’t that the standard last sentence after answering the question in the question and answer proper of a pageant? I think so.) I have 24 more days remaining. I’m thinking of rewarding myself after this challenge. What would it be?

How about you, if you were an animal, what would you be and why?

    I think I’d be a crane.
    I could fly and soar, wade in the water and look pretty. I could live with that I think.
    Either that I would be a cat – especially a well fed house cat like my Diva. I could handle living her life. 🙂

    Cranes are definitely pretty. As per the cat, well I have a crazy one though she’s not with me, she’s in my country and I don’t think I want to be her. She’s too spoiled and she would always try to use my lap as a scratching post whenever i cradled her.

    I would be afraid to be an animal, I would worry about what would happen to all my human traits. I am fearful of mortality
