Further to my rant about the crackberry, you have to watch this hilarious (and oftentimes true) video. It makes the argument for me and is too funny.

take our kids to work day, a success. what did you want to be when you grew up?

Posted on November 2, 2006. Filed under: The Little Bro |

I took the little bro to work today and it was so much fun!

From the get-go, we got up early and were actually out of the house on time. I realized that my ritual of saying Good Morning! every morning as I pass where my grandparents lay in the cemetary might be construed as odd, so I explained quickly right before we got there and we both yelled in happy tones Good Morning! as we flew past. Honestly, it was so sweet, it almost brought a tear to my eye.

I was happily excitedly nervous to take him into the office — mostly excited, but he did very well and made me very proud. I was impressed as he actually spoke up, wasn’t shy and remembered to shake people’s hands (I even tested his handshake the night before, and its good. Solid.) I showed him a lot of stuff and we both taught each other some tricks — I was impressed at his questions and ideas.

Later at yoga, I thought of two things. First — my job didn’t even exist when I was growing up — so clearly, I never wanted to “be it when I was older”. I remember phases of wanting to be a teacher until I realized that not only did I dislike kids, and stupidity, but I didn’t want to help spread knowledge in that way either. (I’m mean like that). I wanted to be a psychologist…but that phase passed. Then a lawyer. This one lasted the longest, until I realized that I didn’t want to work those hours, or actually work on cases involving people — basically, writing this, I wanted a job without interaction with the public I guess (a result of too many bad retail jobs in high school I believe). I would love to go to law school, but would likely never practise — and therefore couldn’t justify the cost.

Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Did your job exist when you were a kid? Did you actually become what you always dreamed you would be? I wonder how many people do…
