If you...

1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?

Answers in comment box, per usual.


1. Restaurant? Home-cookin' where every meal is a heart attack on a plate and macaroni and cheese is a vegetable.

2. Store? Duh! A bookstore, of course!

3. Book? No ambition to write a book. Probably "the Christian Life--How to live in ordinary time in a feast day world"

4. School? Can't decide--probably science to little kids.

5. Album? Bluegrass or southern gospel.

1. ...Food? Italian - look at the tag line on my blog

2. ...Store? Books

3. ...Book? A sci-fi murder mystery romance with a spy and a really big monster at the end!

4. ...Teach? History

5. ...Album? You really don't want me singing. Trust me on this one...

1. abruzzese, 2. very classic menswear and an old "university shop", 3. a short novel, like Kundera's, though differing in content, themes, 4. classical & romance languages, voice and drama (to put on plays & operas), 5. to be Scarpia in "Tosca"

1) Restaurant -- I've always fantasized about having a little soup and sandwich restaurant downtown, open only at lunch time. Wonderful homemade soups served with a variety of splendid homemade breads. And sandwiches, too. I married a guy who used to manage a restaurant, and he says it could work if the overhead wasn't too high, but he has no patience for restaurant work any more.

2) Store -- books. No, toys. No, books. Okay, books and old-fashioned toys that don't require batteries. Like kites and sidewalk chalk.

3) Book -- if I knew, I'd be writing it. I want to write a book so badly! DH says I've already written some children's books, I just have to get a publisher to look at them.

4) School -- I still miss teaching Bible at the junior high/high school level.

5) Album -- probably folk, but that's because I'm not very good. If I was good, opera!

1. Restaurant? A brew pub. I used to homebrew (pre-kids) and loved it. Plus, you got to drink the results.
2. Store? I'll go with the majority--books.
3. History or philosophy.
4. History or philosophy (or brewing!)
5. Opera if I could sing. Jazz, since I can't.

1. restaurant: eclectic. Whatever I love and love to prepare! Cheese steaks for sure, and chili--both veggie and con carne.

2. small store: GREAT CATHOLIC (and other inspirational, with caveat) BOOKS!

3. book genre: Biography

4. teach: Catholic doctrine and Bible to junior high +

5. album: songs of moments where man might be aware of his God-shaped vacuum. Ex. a cover of "Find the Cost of Freedom," by CSNY; "Me and Bobby McGee," "River," by Joni Mitchell.

Maybe some really cool hymns: "Great Is Thy Faithfulness;" "O Sacred Head Now Wounded" (prot. version), "Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All," "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence."

And maybe the Twila Paris arrangement of "O Holy Night," in which the tenor harmony runs away with the show!

Twila Paris has done some really nice, simple worship songs.
