It's been getting all very political around these parts lately so lets lighten things up with a little Listography.
I was contemplating life amid the bubbles of my bath the other night and got to wondering who had it easiest... I started with the rubber duck bobbing around me merrily and ended up with these:
My Top 5 things I'd like to be reincarnated as:
1. A turtle.
Surely the best animal life of them all. Haven't you seen Finding Nemo?
Wouldn't you just love to be able to throw yourself around the place like Karma does? Actually I don't think Karma does a great job of it a lot of the time, I'm sure I could improve on his work. Lady who purposely drove into that dirty puddle and soaked us on the school run? Enjoy that parking ticket later. Guy who carried that old ladies shopping home? Don't forget to pick up that winning lottery ticket on the way back. All bankers and bondholders? Oh dear - did someone really siphon all your money into an account to pay off third world debt? Pity.
3. Me, aged 10.
I'm lucky enough to be able to say I had a pretty idyllic childhood, most of it spent diving of rocks into the bitterly cold Irish sea, and building dens and swings in huge local fields. I'd just ask the Gods of Reincarnation for a little more sunshine this time around.
4. A little fluffy cloud.
Yes it might be a short-lived life but I reckon it would still be pretty wonderful. I just need to choose my spot - right above this guy might do...
5. Ryan Goslings toothpick in Drive.
I'm late to the party with the whole Ryan Gosling thing. I admit that I didn't get it until I actually saw him in a movie. It's fair to say that the ubiquitous pictures in magazines don't do him justice. Drive may even have been the catalyst for a midlife crisis around these parts...Damn that lucky bastard of a toothpick.
So now it's time to run yourself your own bath and get those creative juices flowing (not a euphemism) - what would you like to come back as in Reincarnation World?
