Flavor of the day…
Saturday, September 20th, 2008

If you had to be of a different ethnicity than you actually are, to which heritage would you most like to belong?

Being of predominantly German blood (cold, analytical) and having married an Irishman (fiery and anything but logical), I’d choose to be Italian. :mrgreen:

Think about it—flashing brown eyes and temper, curves in the right places, a loud loving family and great food.

    Since I have no idea what types of ethnic blood I have (only know about a couple for sure, and no I’m not telling. LOL) I think I would chose being “Scot” . Just because I love listening to the accent. When one comes into work I try to keep them talking. :wink:

    I have a small amount of Indian blood in me plus a bunch more. So I would pick being an Indian. I would like to talk to an old Indian to see how life was back in the old days. What stories was passed down and what they have seen through life. It would be interesting hearing what stories they could share.:)My grandfather was born in 1910 and the changes that he’d seen and what went on when he grew up was interesting.

    I am an Irish lassie myself, but love the characteristics you listed for being Italian. Just the thought of not blushing at the drop of a hat, is a major plus, lol.

    I think I would actually go with being Irish. The Long history and the great stories plus the fact that I have this incredible fascination with the country itself :)

    I’d like to be of mixed ethnicity. Maybe partly Japanese. Or Hawaiian. I don’t know. LOL I just like the idea of sharing the heritage of more than one culture.

    Yikes! I’m such a mutt (as I think most Americans are). I like to joke that I’m Italian since I was born there (parents in the Navy), but there isn’t a drop of Italian blood in me, as far as I know. So, if I had to pick, I guess I’d go with Italian…

    Jennifer, that’s why when people ask what I am I say “Generic”. Then I get the strangest looks. I hate to say I’m white/Caucasian. LOL

    I’m British through and through. But, I would love to be Spanish. The way of life is great, all that heat and lovely long naps in the afternoons.

    Ya know, I’m exotic enough as it is, being of 100% Russian descent with a couple of White Army officers for grandfathers.
    It would be nice to be something ordinary like 100% English… but nobility. Yeah, with a Duke or two in the family tree.

    I’m of Polish and German descent. I think I would love to be Irish because of the beautiful country and history of its people.

    I’m a mix of English, Scottish, Irish, German and French (and probably Dutch) but I’d like to have something more exotic like Native American or Thai. Anything to mix up those WASPy genes (and give me skin that didn’t burn in the sun after 10 minutes)–LOL.

    Being a mix of swiss, irish and german, I would opt for a nationality that would give me dark features – black hair, brown eyes, etc. – eyebrows that you can actually see would be nice!

    Wow, good question. I like brown eyes and dark hair (not to mention skin that doesn’t burn quite so easily), so maybe Italian or Hispanic.
