Almost every night, i run a poll on my Twitter timeline usually with the hashtag if given a chance (i.e. #ifgivenachance). The poll lasts for a day so i have the result by the end of the next night i.e. 24 hours.
Two days back, i did this one – If given a chance, what would you like to be –
This question is posed to you as well. Take a minute off and think. The pros and cons of being a bird and a mermaid. Birds fly whereas mermaid swim. Birds have the penthouse view whereas mermaids divulge into the underground secrets of oceans and alike.
The poll result. 67% said they’d want to be a mermaid. 33% preferred being a bird.
if given a chance, i would like to be a bird. It’d be nice. i’d have wings to open and flap, air to breeze through, the lightness in body, the closeness to the vast sky, the aerial view…birds do have solid advantages. Besides, i like jogging. With legs clipped and fused into one, i wouldn’t be able to do that.
So again, among the two, what would be your choice, if given a chance?
