This is a fun question:
If you could be any character in a book, who would it be?
I’ll go first. I thought long and hard on this, but my mind kept coming back to Huckleberry Finn. I’m not much of an outdoors dude, and I suppose I could swim–er, dog paddle–well enough to avoid drowning, depending on how rough the water is (actually, before taking a plunge into the Mississippi River, I would be sure to put my affairs in order). But what’s the point of being a fictional character if you don’t acquire that character’s traits?
Huck is an independent fellow. He’s not afraid to go anywhere and do anything. And he’s very liberal-minded for the time in which he lives. Plus, he doesn’t have many worries – except the possibility of being “sivilized” by the Widow Douglas – and what trouble he gets himself into he’s pretty confident he can get himself out of.
Now it’s your turn. Who would you be and why?
