What I DIDN’T Want to Be When I Grew Up

People ask me if I’ve always wanted to be a writer.

Nope. That has been a recent development.

So then I started thinking of all the jobs I didn’t want to have. Those are more interesting than what I did want to be. That’s actually a pretty short list: Wonder Woman, Actress, English teacher (that last one is really all three combined :))

So here is it is:

What I DIDN’T Want to Be When I Grew Up

  • A cook
  • A baker
  • A food service professional of any kind
  • An olympic ice skater
  • A rodeo clown
  • A soybean farmer
  • A preschool teacher
  • The person who scrapes dead animals off the highways
  • Anything that would require me to sit behind a desk all day
  • A carpenter
  • An architect
  • A corporate lawyer
  • A meteorologist
  • A proctologist
  • A urologist
  • A lepidopterologist
  • A firewoman
  • A hair dresser
  • An urban planner
  • An accountant
  • A DJ
  • A wedding planner
  • A party planner
  • Pretty much anything that has “planner” in the title
  • A professional wrestler
  • A mortician
  • And finally (I found this online, so it must be true) “A Flatulence smell-reduction underwear maker” (for those with especially bad tummy trouble)

So these are someĀ things I didn’t want to be when I grew up. What about you?
