Right. Just one second....(goes off to dictionary.com)
Oh right, I see. Well, the first thing that has sprung to my mind regarding this topic is a ghastly set of books called 'Animorphs' which were everywhere a few years back when I was at school. I think CBBC then made a TV series based on them. Some of my friends liked them, whereas I thought they were shit.
If I could turn into any animal? Hmm, a tricky one. Dolphins, I believe, are the only mammals that enjoy sex. Apart from humans, of course, although I find it more uncomfortable than enjoyable. Perhaps I would like to be an animal that hibernates through the winter, and wakes up in time for my favourite season, Spring.
I would love to be a bird though - to soar through the skies, looking down upon the towns, and the countryside, and the sea, without a care in the world. But I'd also like to be a lion, the King of all animals. I honestly can't decide.
Of course, transmogrification just doesn't apply to animals - it is the changing in appearance or form. That reminds me in turn of a character called Eugene Tooms in the marvellous TV series The X-Files, who could mutate his body at will. Whilst I don't wish to murder people, that function would perhaps come in handy when, say, rescuing golf balls from when I've whacked them into hedges, streams etc.
It's an interesting topic, if nothing else. What animal would YOU be, dear reader?
Thanks for the suggestion Sue!
