WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

  1. 1.
    Hockey puck
    I thought this is what you called a hockey player.
  2. 2.
    Egyptologist
    Museums are very powerful to an impressionable child.
  3. 3.
    Bookstore/coffee shop owner
    As though we need another one of those in this world.
  4. 4.
    Foreign Service Officer
    Until I realized I'd have to wear a suit everyday and that I hated 9 out of 10 classmates in Intro to International Affairs.
  5. 5.
    Nurse
    I like blood and guts.
