#MondayListicles grow up to be a…

Say it Rah-shay By Jan 30, 2013 1 Comment

This week the prompt for Monday Listicles is what we wanted to be when grew up.
If someone had ever told me that I’d be working on a library I woulda laughed because I stayed being a fugitive from the library! I used to live for Amnesty week because I would borrow books and forget to return them. if my future self returned to the pass and been all, “You’re gonna work in a library someday” I would have been all “Nah-ahn!” And future Rachee would have been all, “Uhn-hun” and young Rachee  would have been all “Fo’ real?” and…yeah…none of this would have happened cause space time continuim and some such nonsense.

Anywho ten things I wanted to be when I grew up:

1. A Mailman.
Yes. Man.
I may have mentioned having an idiot for a father and he was all, “Women can’t do stuff” and I was all, you’re right…they can’t! But the mailman we had was always nice and never went postal and drove a little truck that seemed so cool!

2. A social worker.
I wanted to help people, particularly children who needed to be adopted. Because there was a foster family down the street from us and they always seemed to be sad.

3. A nurse.
My aunt is a nurse and she was always someone I looked up to. Well, I still look up to her.

4. An obstetrician
Cause I liked babies. I really like other people’s babies.

5. A physical therapist
Cause I didn’t think I would get into med school. But then I failed biology three times and was like nuts to science ANYTHING!

6. A teacher.
Cause I want summers off.

7. A psychologist
Cause there are some effed up people in the world

8. A psychiatrist
So that I could medicate those effed up people from number 7

9. A Backup singer.
I just want to wear a slinkyish dress and harmonize in the background

10. An actress
I thought I could be a great performer on stage. I was going to be on Broadway, win a bunch off awards, have Liz Taylor like affairs and be HAWT!

What say you?
What did you want to be when you grew up?

And today we shall let Donna take it away:



I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.
