I would love to be a caterer ... I really like the thought of a personal business and love the planning / prep part of our own parties. I always thought I'd like to have my own restaurant but the mobility and variety of catering is appealing. HOWEVER! One small business in the family is enough I think ... so dream on I will .

I think someone should pay me to lay on the beach and get tanned.

I'm really good at it. LOL!

I am perfectly happy with my job, but if I could work in another place it would be a bookstore. Ah, to be surrounded by thousands of books. So, many to read and so little time.

I want to have a horse livery business. Or maybe a children's farm.

Were I younger I would like to be the lawyer for the estate of Anna Nicole Smith.

Plenty of work to keep me busy, probably until I retired, lots of bucks there (the old guy was a kazillionaire), and spending some time in the Bahamas now and again would not be half bad.

The only downer would be having to go to legal school.

And passing the bar.

I hate to pass bars, they always look so inviting.

It is better than being the guy who has to collect the donor stuff for artificially inseminating lady alligators.

Yep, that is a real job. Exxactly how they do it I do not want to know. Kinda sorry I even brought the subject up.

I want to be the person that names either OPI nail polish or Benjamin Moore paint - where they come up with these names is beyond me, but it seems a group of people must be in a room together with cocktails just calling out names.

If I could do it all over again ..... I would love to be a microbiologist - too late for me now, but I find that kind of stuff very interesting.

Job, who wants a job? I just want to putter around messing with the the plants and flowers. If I were a young man and starting in a career search I think I would like to be a teacher. I know it is under appreciated but they really have an impact on young people.
