Listography: Top 5 Things I'd Like to be Reincarnated As

Hmmm. This is a hard one, Kate Takes 5.

For this month's Listography, the topic is what you'd like to be reincarnated as.

So who, or what, has the loveliest or easiest or most interesting life?

OK, here goes- in no particular order:

1. A lion in a protected game park in Africa.
Lions have an OK life. Top of the food chain; surrounded by family and friends; much of the time spent lazing around in the shade of a tree. I would want to be a FEMALE lion, hanging out and hunting with the other womenfolk; looking after and teaching my cubs, patiently putting up with their gamboling antics (until they get too painful, when they get a quick slap or nip). Most important to avoid the stress and macho crap of being a MALE lion - all that fighting and bluffing to keep your place until a younger upstart throws you out of the pride.

2. A girl, in a secure home with a loving family, 100 years in the future. 
What will things be like for her? What opportunities and experiences will be available to her?
(Obviously, this one needs a conditional out-clause, in case I wake up in a blazing nuclear/terrorist/climate-change Armageddon).

3.  Someone who makes money from creative pursuits, and is successful at that. 
Not a famous person, but someone like, for example, the kind of technical or creative consultants who create things for movies or websites, or a musician who is respected in the industry and works with others better known.

4.  A science writer.
Oh how I envy these people! Great job.

5.  A seagull. 
Oh, I know their lives are actually probably a bit stressful, and involve lots of scrapping for food and looking for food - but watching them soar in the air is one of the best, and most wistful, things in life. Jealous!

What about you? What would YOU like to come back as?
