Alternate futures I envisioned for myself as a child

  1. Playing in the NHL
    Hockey was my first true love.
  2. Playing in the NFL
    Football was my second true love.
  3. NASCAR driver
    Lots of time spent at the track with my uncle's race team. Plus, Days of Thunder.
  4. Pet shop owner
    Because animals are better than many people.
  5. Veterinarian
    Until I found out about the whole putting animals to sleep thing of course.
  6. Writer
    Ever since reading Romeo and Juliet in third grade.
  7. Fighter pilot
    Mostly because of Top Gun. Clearly Tom Cruise held a great deal of sway over me...
  8. Mob enforcer
    ... or maybe it was just movies in general...
  9. Assassin
    ... ok, so I was a messed up kid.
