What would you be if you had your druthers...

If you could be anything other than your current or present profession, what career would you be in?

I'll wait for answers, see how loony they are, maybe then, I'll answer.

i am thinking about a small cafe owner. super customer friendly. arm chairs in the waiting area, fire place and current magazines to look through . the food would be good homestyle things and comfy desserts. and customer service above and beyond.

Hind sight being 20/20, I should have been a teacher. I would already be retired for 5 years and could spend more time with the non-profit groups I work with.

Other than that, I would just be happy with the wisdom of Solomon.

I always thought it would be cool to be an art teacher in the elementary school level.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

That is easy Lefse.... current position is in Information Technology (IT). I owe this company so much for taking a chance on a punk kid at 19. They have taught me everything I know about computers.

Now to answer your question... I would be in wild life rehabilitation / rescue. I guess the beauty of it all is that it is never to late to persue your dreams!!!

I'm pretty much with babe.... a cheers type place where everyone chooses to spend all thier extra time...
The bagel store I work at is pretty much like that..... I think thats why I love working there...
But I dont think I'd want to own it right now.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
