What Did You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

Ask any kid, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” and the kid almost always has a quick answer.  This is not something they need to think about, they just know… with certainty.  I still remember what my answer was.  I wanted to make pizza and sell it out of a truck.  So, like an ice cream truck, but for pizza.  I also thought I could make a fortune selling chocolate chip cookies using my Grandmother’s recipe — she makes really good cookies!  Somehow as I grew up, I forgot about my aspirations.  One thing lead to another, and I studied art all the way through college, and now I work as an artist — a dream job for many kids, I bet.  Maria says she wanted to be a candy salesperson.  So, what did you want to be, and what did you end up becoming?

If this whole artist thing doesn’t work out, I can go back to my original plan to sell pizza from a truck.
