What were you going to be when you grew up?


So funny/weird/crazy/ironic sometimes where you end up in life.

Remember that time when you were like 8-12 and you would sit and have those, I’m going to be this or do that when I grow up or get older, moments?  And at the time you just knew that was going to happen.  Almost like it was a snap of a finger once you were “grown”.  Oh, to be so naive and young again.   With having a little one of my own now makes me think about times when I said I was going to do something when I grow up.  It also makes me realize I didn’t have a clue either.  And I’m sure my parent were laughing under their breath and how they kept their composure from laughing out load in my face beats me.

I can still remember telling my parents that I was going to be a “biker chick” when I was older and that I was never going to get married or that I was going to be older when I got married.  Oh, and that I was going to be a Mammal Marine Biologist.  Now when I say “biker chick” I didn’t mean the cigerette smoking, foul language, man looking with head to toe tattoos kind that some people might imagine when you hear the word biker chick.  I am so far from that it is hilarious. Well except a tattoo or two.  I don’t know what it was about being a “biker chick” at the time.  I remember seeing these “tough” girls on these fast moving, free feeling machines and it seemed like it would be so cool.  I have always been a sort of dare devil type of person, well when I had the body for it that is.  Hey, who knows maybe it is still not out of the question.  Maybe Big and I will be that older couple with our Harley’s going out for Sunday afternoon drives to visit the grandkids after church.

What were you going to be when you grew up?  PLEASE SHARE!

  1. It’s not too late! Heck, I STILL want to be a biker babe someday. Come on over and learn how to ride a motorcycle on our old school Suzuki. If I can do it, anyone can do it. You’re only a few riding lessons and one tattoo away from reaching your DREAM!!
