My Interview Question

I've decided that when I'm someone important, these will be two of the questions that I ask all applicants:

a.) If you could describe yourself as any drug, which drug would it be?

b.) If you could be any drug, which drug would you be?

I think my answers would be a.) meth-amphetamine (because you love me but I drive you crazy and move entirely too fast) and b.) heroine (because I would slow the world down and make it feel good)

This is what happens when you try to start working before you've had your coffee. On that note, I would never want to be coffee.

I think I'd prefer to be marijuana. I like it when everyone around me is mellow.

And I think I'd like to be the drug that just grows quietly in a sunny corner of the garden.

The problem with heroine is that I am just not sure how I'd feel to have all those people addicted to me. And it's too expensive -- I think I'm a working class and college student kind of a drug.

Tried to post this once and it crashed, so I apologize now if it comes back and there is a double entry -

Jo(e), your answer makes me laugh and nod my head.

SFTR, this is an interesting question - I've never considered it before. Hmmmm.

P.S. Only because there are two drastically different meanings involved, I think it's heroin without the 'e'.

Why not coffee? cuz of the GI effects?

I would like to be ativan - no, wait - xanax. Calming and addictive baby, that's me.

What am I now? What makes you feel jangly and awkward with some moments of fun, yet also the tendency to depress and gain weight? Maybe lithium? risperidone?

I would love to be coffee - so many people just can't get along without it and I'm all about feeling the love, baby.

I would also like to be insulin - is that fair game? Insulin or artificial thyroid hormone. Both of them keep people going when they would otherwise not make it.

If we are talking recreational drugs I'd have to go with cocaine. Glamorous, a little too expensive to favor gross abuse, not too terribly addictive as drugs go and a lot less damaging than meth or heroine. Also, supermodels and celebrities can transcend coke usage. Heroine or meth tend to cause permanent damnation.

Yikes - I know way too much about recreational drugs. Carry on.

Honey, you couldn't be coffe anyway 'cause I'M COFFEE!!!!!!!!
I'm overrated and can be a real pain in the ... head.

So this about distinguishing an image we'd like to convey to others from a secret power we'd like to have? Weird pair. Let me think. I wish I knew more drugs. I guess I'd like to appear engaging, so perhaps viagra. Then secretly I'd like people to fall in love with me, which I suppose calls for ecstasy, but hopefully not for its hallucinagenic properties. Low dosages only, of course. I don't want anybody getting hurt.

"Hallucinogen" I meant, of course. Not "hallucinagen." If that looked like I was misspelling then you were hallucinating.

You guys are too funny:) And yes, it is heroin--although I'm leaving it because heroine is a nice play on the word/idea.

See what happens without the morning coffee...I get things all messed up.

At 2:16 PM, Blogger Jessica said...

I agree, SFTR - it *is* a nice play on words.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I would be anything that would take away this headache of mine.
