Question of the Day #566

When I was a kid, I wanted be a rock star. I sang at school talent shows, in choirs, and at fairs. When my mother had friends over, I belted out a show. I sang for anyone who would listen to me.

When Star Search came out I was convinced that I, too, could be a star.

Alas, I now sing in the car or occasionally at karaoke. (And I'm totally cool with that.)

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?


PS - Can you believe this question hasn't come up yet???


  1. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. :)

  2. You ARE a rock star already! And I have always thought you're the most spectacular singer, and as I always say "this isn't your last stop." Some time down the road you just might be performing on the big stage... you never know.

    What did I want to be when I grew up? Exactly what I'm doing now. I wanted to be a "businesswoman" working in a big office. I never wanted to be a chef even though it's my first love, because I didn't want to ruin a hobby by making it a profession. So here I am, the "businesswoman" I always wanted to become. And I love every day of it!

  3. I'm with Beck - still figuring it out. Would have loved to have walked on the moon or blasted off in the shuttle, but trigonometry & statistics got me in trouble back in the day...se la vi!

  4. You really need to post a vlog of you singing!!!

    Veterinarian, pet store lady :), singer, teacher, TV star.

  5. A dancer. Spent hours, days, weeks, years practicing and performing.

  6. Farmer, astronaut and write a spy novel (think James Bond). And ditto Kelly P's request for the vlog!

  7. I'm amazed by people who can sing - I couldn't hold a note if my life depended on it. You've got a great voice - it gave me goose bumps the first time I heard it.

    I wanted to be a nurse. Then an artist.
    After that I just kind of rolled with where life took me - and here I am. :)

  8. Vet -- I later worked as a vet assistant, so I got it out of my system.

  9. Mad scientist would have suited me very well...

  10. I don't get that "growing up" thing :)
