A bit of Sunday Silliness--What did you Want to be When You Grew up?

When I was a young child, and Kennedy was President, I was certain I wanted to be an astronaut. His presidency filled me with hope for the future and a dream that there was something more "out there" and we could discover it. Then Star Trek was launched in 1966 and I felt certain we would be flying through the cosmos discovering new worlds.

Alas, I grew up and my dreams were dashed by reality (math was not my strong suit and I really am not a fan of heights).

So, what did you dream of doing when you were young and, more to the point, did you realize your dreams? Curious minds want to know (oh, and there is the anonymity that we can share without anyone judging, sort of--unlike on Facebook or other source where people actually know us. )

My dream was to be an actress, a ballerina, or a nun.

Eclectic taste in occupations. Did you realize any of the three?

President was on my list back then too--then again, that math thing was an interference, oh wait--our current can't claim that skill either. I guess I should watch my step--that could be considered political. As I said, all silliness on a Sunday.

1. Truck Driver (18-wheeler)
2. Lawyer
3. Teacher

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

Wonder Woman

one of Charlie's Angels



or a ballerina
or a tap dancer
or a rockette!

Unfortunately
Wonder Woman isn't real
Neither is Charlie's Angels
I'm too uncoordinated for a ballerina or tap dancer
And too short to be a Rockette

I'm a Nurse. When I was 5 yrs old, I was watching Sesame Street. It was an episode about taking care of each other when sick. They had a nurse visit the street talking about her job, and I knew then that's what I wanted to be.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I remember wanting to be a dancer on the Ted Mack Amatuer Hour!

My Senior year HS info says I wanted to be Probation Officer.
I think I would've been better at that than a dancer.

Marine biologist was a thought in my mind in middle school.
