This post is preparation for an in-depth post Sunday, and it requires some participation on the part of the readers. I have a question for you, and I want as many of you as possible to comment with an answer. A couple things to keep in mind as you respond: First, try to answer without reading other people's answers - I don't want anyone influenced by others' thoughts. Second, don't try to interpret the question or its intention yet. Just answer it honestly and with your first response.
So, without further ado, I pose the question to you all:
What are you?
