When I grow up...

For my own sanity, I'm MAKING myself take a lunch break today and I'm participating in Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

"If you had made a career out of whatever you were passionate about when you were ten... what would you be doing?"

I would be busy...

I might be directing a choir full of stuffed bears and dogs and monkeys who would be stuck at choir practice all day because I am too lazy to drive them all home.

I might be delivering the news or weather or sports on the local TV station...and probably not wearing pants (because I heard that's how they roll).

I might be working as an interior designer. Although, I'm not sure who would hire me. Do they even sell Kirk Camron or NKOTB posters anymore?

I might be an actress and I'm pretty sure that every single child everywhere would want to be just.like.me.

I might be the most famous singer the world has ever known- and probably the most beautiful one too.

I might be a teacher, and I would probably be the one that everyone hates because my tests are so hard (it's funny for me to watch the faces of those who fail- don't judge).

I might be a banker who just sits at a desk and pushes papers around in between phone calls. hummmmm...that's pretty similar to what I do now anyway. That's odd.


But, you know what the funny thing is? I never pictured myself as being a mother. But then again, I never pictured myself as making more than $10,000 a year. Oh the innocence of a child....
