So what did you want to be when you grew up?

May 29, 2024 09:16PM
The first occupation I can remember wanting to be was an archaeologist. Sad thing is... I still wish I had followed that dream. laughing smiley My best 'guess' is that becoming an archaeologist first took hold of my thoughts somewhere around 3rd or 4th grade?

A lot of other occupations followed that first hope but archaeology never fell far from top billing.

I believe I read somewhere that the #1 wish for kids is either a Fireman or a Policeman, (for boys that is, not sure about girls). I forget which. So it seems Ramgator of us here on the Pub did the best at sticking to his guns? Although... I think it possible that sstrams may have begun with 'musician'? Musician also enteried my mind but not until later in life... I think when "the Beach Boys" hit the music scene.

To note: I think my reading of the #1 wish for kids being fireman or policeman was long, long ago... meaning it's most likely out of date. I'm not sure what would be #1 today. - JamesJM
