Wow, Joe, you are talented.

I wanted to be a war correspondent for a news network. I'm glad that didn't work out. I'll have to settle for my girl-crush on Christiane Amanpour.

No! Smart.

Yeah, smart would be cool. :)

And also, a veterinarian. Riding around to farms with a pack of dogs in the back of my car.

A microbiologist. Got one degree down, still need more college and was working on it, was offered a crappy starting job in a forensics lab, was super excited about it, life happened, now I'm a mortgage loan officer. Look at me go!

:D

But still, still I really want to be an author.



Joe, great cartoon! Talented man.

An astronaut.

Grew up in Houston, steeped in the culture. Spent the first - eighteen? - years of my life planning on the Airforce and getting into space.

But then I had friends go to 'Nam - and the gloss of the military dissappeared. (This was before the shuttle, and the 'civilian' space program. The military was the only path at the time.)

Flying and space is still a major interest. If I had been born 'later' ...

a human being.

Damn! That's what I wished...for Haskins to be human!

(Actually, I wished to be an underpaid, overworked cop with a doughnut allergy. Just goes to show you, be careful what you ask for.)

I came pretty close; I'm a Pixie.
(Seriously, I did achieve my dream of being paid to travel and write.)
