WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

  1. Professional Colorer...
    both in and out of lines
  2. Teacher...
    the kind that shows movies the day before spring break but also inspires at least one student to become a Constitutional Scholar.
  3. Constitutional Scholar...
    about the time I read To a Kill A Mockingbird, the biography of T. Jefferson and Profiles In Courage
  4. Writer for Letterman
  5. Writer for Sesame Street
    Less stress (muppets!); more long term impact (literacy!)
  6. Back-Up Singer for The Boss...
    about the time I followed his E Street band reunion tour across the country -- just in case he needed a fill-in.
  7. Steve Martin's Assistant (which sounds better than stalker)
  8. A Reality star...without the show
  9. Well-Rested.
