I don't want to think about a world without pancakes, they are my fave food! When I was prego, I would eat pancakes basically EVERY day! Wonderful What if list! I love it!

What if chocolate had no calories and was REALLY good for you?

What a great post for W. I hear you on the pancakes! Now you have me thinking, what if... Kathy

You really gave us something to think about today. There are lots of what ifs!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Love it...

I don't want to live in a world without pancakes -- I'm just saying...

Viki said...

It's very interesting to think of the "What if's". Would I be stronger, smarter, healthier. Would I be a better or worse person. I don't think I would have liked to have been born in another country, that's one thing I know for sure. The rest is for grabs. Great, thought provoking W post.

Jenny said...

Wow! What a wonderful thought provoking stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "W".

This is really food for thought, Claudia.

It's amazing that each of those statements can spin off it's own small makes you realize how many stories are inside of you waiting to be written.

I think I need to hear a lot more about Clint AND your son!

As for pancakes. I shudder at the thought.

Thank you for linking!

You are wonderful!
