Open thread – question of the day
Hi folks, sorry for the MIA posting last night; we got together with non-virtual world friends we hadn’t seen in a long time and you know how that goes — a nice long evening chatting and catching up.
Question of the day: What did you want to be “when you grew up” as a kid? And, did you end up doing it?
When I was about six I told my mom that I wanted to be a veterinarian (argh, I later realized that I couldn’t handle the sadness of seeing hurt animals over and over).
A few years later I remember saying I wanted to be “in the news.” I think that was really an asshat description of news or political reporting, since I had a childhood fixation on TV news and talk shows, even though I didn’t always understand what the heck people were talking about. As I’ve said before, while other kids said they’d want Winnie the Pooh or Captain Kangaroo over for dinner, I begged my mom to invite “Uncle Walter” (Cronkite). I was a bizarre child.
I’ve held a series of jobs in the publishing field, but not as a writer. I guess I am getting that fix in an very offbeat way now with the blog.
