Tag, You're It
If anyone *wants* to be tagged, say so, in the comments.
So here's how it works. Immediately following there is a list of 18 different occupations (well, there's more now, as people have added...). You must select at least 5 of them (feel free to select more). You may add more if you like to your list before you pass it on (after you select 5 of the items as it was passed to you). Each one begins with "If I could be..." Of the 5 you selected, you are to finish each phrase with what you would do as a member of that profession.
For example, if the selected occupation was "farmer" you might take the phrase "If I could be a farmer..." and add to it "I would raise llamas and give them away to children who didn't have any pets." See how easy that is? Here's the list:
Choose your poison:
If I could be a scientist

(my add… If I could be a superhero)
If I could be a farmer… wait, I’d never want to be a farmer. I did everything I could to get away from farms! HOWEVER, if I could be a farmer where I am now, I’d have great big green houses and orchards so I could grow fruits and veggies and herbs all year round. I simply have a black thumb. Even mint dies in my care.
If I could be a linguist, I’d be fluent in Chinese. It’s just such a different concept than English, and I think that’d make my brain work better!
If I could be an athlete, I’d be an Excellent pro-tennis player. They get lots of dough, lots of cute clothes, and not so much attention as to ruin their lives. They also retire young.
If I could be an innkeeper, I’d have a bed and breakfast in a BIG old house with all the mod cons. I’d have this big old Victorian house somewhere in the British Isles. I’d be located near a town with plenty of history, but not much industry. And I’d NEVER NEVER serve kippers for breakfast.
If I could be a Llama-rider, I’d be a Brazilian fly. You know, that doesn’t sound like such a bad life. Maybe karma will take me there next turn of the wheel.
If I could be a superhero, I'd be Superman. He just rocks.
