What if my garden were weed-free?
What if I died my hair red?
What if I always knew exactly the right thing to say in any given situation?
What if I get my period again, when I turn 80?
What if my barrettes don't match?

What if I'd been smart and made a drawing of where we put all our plants when we moved the garden — would I know what's coming up?
What if I moved to a place where no one knows me?
What if a meteor hits my house in the night, sending us all to the stars?
What if there were only one kind of salad dressing to choose?
What if we all stood up in the middle of a boring sermon, speech, movie, or lecture, and shouted "It's time to dance!"?
What if, when I wake in the middle of the night, often more than once, I could simple count "1, 2, 3" and fall back to sleep before even reaching the number 4.
What if I run with my eyes closed?
What if I remember to do one small creative thing each day?
