I don't wannabe a Spice Girl!

I did one of those daft quizzes on Buzzfeed while supping my mocha one dull Monday morning.

'What musical girl group do you belong in?' screamed the headline, so I thought I'd give it a go.  It was either that or get back to doing some actual work and I was feeling easily distracted.

Based on my answers - and I'm sure with no scientific basis whatsoever - I belong in The Spice Girls.

To be honest, I was hoping for Bananarama or The Bangles as The Spice Girls phenomenon completely passed me by; 1996 was the year I graduated from University, and my musical tastes were more of the Indie variety.

Not that I'm knocking The Spice Girls - I can't dispute their success and the longevity of some of their careers, it's just that I wouldn't want to be one.

It comes down to the 'character' associations: I could probably be Scary, in fact given the correct circumstances I could definitely be scary, at a push Posh, not Royal-family posh, but as posh as Victoria but in a more smiley, friendly way.

Baby is out of the question (I'm mid-forties, that would be weird) and Sporty isn't going to work for me either - I'm not really a 'leisurewear as outdoor wear' type of person.  Neither can I do those backflips - not that I've tried, I don't think the NHS could cope with the injuries I'd cause myself and bystanders should such a manoeuvre be undertaken!

No, the main problem is that I'd end up being Ginger Spice.

With hideous flashbacks to all the names I've been called by growing up red-headed, I don't think I could cope with this moniker. 

Also, that very tight, short Union Jack dress really wouldn't suit me - unless it can work as a tunic, with jeans and Doc Martens?

So no, I don't think I'll be shouting 'Girl Power' and joining The Spice Girls for their rumoured 2016 reunion tour. 
Please also note any suggestions of 'Old Spice' will not be welcomed!
