What did you want to be?

You know when you dreamt of stuff when you were a kid? What did you want to be? Did it come true?

Six years old.

"Mummy!" I scream in my high pitched voice, running with blonde pigtails and a bright red face. "I want to be a Doctor like Daddy!"

Seven years old.

"You want to be a what?" my mother asks, somewhat shocked.

"I want to be a plastic surgeon,"

Ten years old.

"What happened to Plastic Surgery?" my mother asks, surprised at my sudden outburst.

"No, I was being silly. I want to be a ballroom dancer!"

Eleven years old.

"Yeah, I could be a martial arts teacher; HIYAH!"

Hairdresser/wife/electrician/super-hero/rock-star/comedian/blah blah blah blah blah.

Technically I'm still a kid ... and at the moment I want to be an author!

What did/do you want to be?

The End
