When I Grow Up
Weekend Assignment #77: What do you want to be when you grow up?
This can be answered one of two ways: You can answer by saying what you wanted to be when you were a kid, or, you can answer by saying what you still want to be, one day, one way or another. It's up to you.
All I wanted to be, as a child, was an Indian... a native American. I knew, even then, that it wasn't something you could "become", but that's what I wanted most of all, and I questioned my relatives, hoping to find that there might be a tiny drop if Indian blood somewhere in my veins.
What I'd like to be now? A writer.
Extra Credit: What did your parents want you to be when you grew up?
Anything I did was fine with Daddy. I believe Mother wanted me to be a preacher's wife. Whew, I'm glad that didn't happen!
