What Animal Would You Be?

Every year my company sponsors 4 high school students on a trip to Washington DC. As a part of my job, I organize the contest. The contest consists of a written test and interview. Last night, we hosted 26 local students each competing for a chance to go to Washington DC this summer.

During the interview process, the judges asked each contestant to leave the room and come back in as an animal. They had to act out the animal and then tell why they chose that particular animal. I was not in the interview room, but caught a glimpse of a few of the "animals". It was hilarious! Heather and I had a hard time stifling our giggles!

Heather dared me to go in the interview room and act out an animal in between interviews. I didn't take the dare, but I did decide my animal. Oh, and I did act the animal out for Heather and another coworker later.

What animal would I be? I would be a flamingo! Why? Because I would be tall, thin, and pink! What more could you ask for!!!!

Haha that is clever! My fave animal is a penguin but I would not want to be one - they live in freezing conditions and swim in artic water. No thanks to that!

Cute! I would probably be a bird - I love birds!

SassyEngineer said...

Hmm - good question. I'm not sure what I would be. Maybe a horse? What a lame answer, but some horses are just so beautiful and fast, and still pretty friendly! I am horrible at questions like this. I love the Flamingo!

Southern Belle said...

ha, that's so funny. Too clever on the flamingo. Now that you mention it, can I be a flamingo with you;)

Brenda Heisler said...

Cute idea. That would be so fun to watch. I think we'll try something like that at the golf course.

Awe! I agree, I heart pink and flamingos. If I couldn't be the pretty pink bird, I would choose a giraffe. So cute and thanks for sharing. Xoxo-BLC

Super cute!

constance said...

Oh, WYT...such a good time on that trip! Glad I never had to go through your interview process though!

I'd be a show heifer...get pampered, judged for beauty and then have babies for the rest of your life...that amounts to the animal version of a trophy wife, right? :)

Catholic Runner said...

Love it! You are right there is nothing better than tall, thin, and pink unless you throw a little green in with it.

I would be a dolphin! They're so happy and intelligent!

Kelly said...

I think I would be a frog so I could scare the mess out of our older sister all the time! Just kidding. I would be one of those dogs that get carried around in a purse. Boy they have the life!

NatalieDeltaGam said...

haha! LOVE IT!

Amanda said...

A flamingo, that's great! I don't know what I would be. Maybe a housecat, or one of my dogs...they have it pretty good, lol.

jlc said...

I cannot TELL you HOWWWW many times my husband has asked me this exact same question.

And everytime I have a diff answer. Ummmm I'd have to say a dolphin today. :)

Cute post!

I would so be a tiger! Fierce, strong, majestic and graceful! (my favorite animal btw)

Southern Belle said...

Hey Jen, it's Jen. ha:) Sorry, I couldn't resist. I left you something on my blog!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

I have no idea, haha! I would have to think about it!

Jules said...

Hmmm, very clever on picking the Flamingo. I would want to be a dolphin because I love the water and they're so fun, playful and strong.

I hope your Target has it too! Check the clearance racks. Have a great night :)

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I agree with the other girls - your answer of flamingo is perfect! I would say dog, because they are so spoiled and loved!

Globetrottingbride said...

Ah, a flamingo is perfect! I think I'd have to be a lion since I'm a Leo!

Lindsey said...

Ooh I like that you want to be a flamingo! I'm a big fan of pink myself- so much so that I dedicate every Thursday to it on my blog. You should do a guest post for me :)
