Look At Me, Look At Me, Look At Me Now

5 May

What occupation did you want as a child?

Believe it or not…writer.  I also fancied being a teacher and an actress.

Are you sensing a pattern?

    Are any of us accurately represented by our blogs?

      What a food waste that would have been. A woman who can make beetroot look attractive, can do anything.

    There’s always the “Miss America, Universe, World, etc. pageant answer:

    “I want to be a brain surgeon or a model.”

    Me? I wanted to be a physician. Didn’t change my mind until I got to college and realized that I had already spent enough time in school – couldn’t stand the thought of 10 years more. . .

    Then decided I would be an actress/singer. Did that for a (small) while. Loved it, but soon realized that it’s hard to make a living that way. Got married instead, and raised actor/singer sons (though each have back-up trades and/or professions!). As much fun, and oddly more satisfying. . .

    When Hubs was little he told people he was going to be a ballet danser or a doctor! When he was on shipboard on the way back from China (he was about 5 yrs. old), the only movie they had on board (an old troop-transport ship) was “The Red Shoes.” He figured that was why he wanted to be a ballet dancer. One of the people he loved while in China was a doctor. Interesting what can influence your desires to do one thing or another when you are small.

      Love your Hubs!

      You don’t want world peace…?

    Hi Tilly…love the cartoon. I also wanted to be a teacher…for a short while…probably just as well I changed my mind!

      I tend to agree, after yesterday’s report of a blowout 🙂 Wouldn’t want to see our Granny in jail for anything other than sedition.

    I do sense a pattern . . .

    Writing + Teaching + Acting = Blogging!!! At its finest.

    Me . . . Perry Mason / Simultaneous Interpreter at the U.N. able to communicate in every language in the world! / Rock Star . . . all superimposed with Writer.

    I wanted to be a vet but became a secretary – go figure!
    At least I’m writing about animals so I guess I got half-way there!

    I wanted to be a nun for a while.I blame the swishy habit and the Sound of Music.I practised swishing for a while (dressing gown hanging from my head) and singing in the garden. Until I received an applause from neighbours who’d gathered at the fence.Then I switched to being an ice skater (Torvil and Dean) skating around my bedroom on my annuals. Then I went ice-skating, discovered I could not stand up and promptly decided I should become a lorry driver,journalist and the next female prime minister simultaneously.
    I write and drive a minibus that pretends to be a car, one to go!!

    Love the post-it note joke – reminded me of the kinda thing my best friend would say to me 😀 xx


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
