From ffanatic (actually, from his sinful girlfriend) comes a meme about all those stupid things you wanted to be as a child, in order.

  • A grocer (c. 1st grade)
  • An artist (c. 3rd grade)
  • A vet (c. 5th grade)
  • A pharmacist (c. 11th grade)
  • A computer-related field [IT, web dev., &c.] (current)

Don’t laugh about my wanting to be a grocer. I was basing that particular career choice based on my then-current skillset, which basically consisted of the alphabet and addition. I also—for years—thought that height was determined only by age.

    I know…at those oddish jobs you want to do as a child. My cousin wanted to be a construction worker after reading all those Bob the Builder type books and seeing a construction worker drive a “really kewl machine”. I’ll have to steal this and share my odd career choices with the world. One of which is quite immoral. LoL

    Hahahaha, that is so cute that you wanted to be a grocer! Did you ever play Store whne you were little?

    I don’t recall playing store per se, but I had a Fischer Price McDonalds thingamabob, so I had a lot of prepping for a career in the food service industry. Thankfully, I’ve avoided said career path.
