(depending on how many I skip).
Today's prompt is: "If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why?"
So years and years ago when I was in grade school in Idaho Falls, Idaho (Theresa Bunker Elementary) a teacher asked the same question. And I said, "An eagle." Some boy piped up, "That's not an animal, that's a bird." I replied, "Birds are animals." (Even then I was insufferable.) I was, of course, right.
So, what's my answer now, some 50 years or so later?
Same answer: an eagle. For two reasons.
One: I've never had good eyesight. Well, a short time (couple of years) after I got LASIK my eyesight was pretty good. Then it started deteriorating. Turns out I had Kerataconus (read more here). Since then, even though I underwent an experimental treatment to fix it, my eyesight has always been marginal.
Eagles are reputed to have excellent eyesight. I would love that.
Two: I want to fly. Not on a plane, but to fly like an eagle. I think that would be the most fun thing in the world. I envy birds that ability, especially the big ones such as eagles.
The one downside: eating raw mice and fish. I think I could get used to that.
So, I want to fly like an eagle.
