    Default What's The Greatest Job You'll Never Have?

    All:

    I was reading a post by Lady Frog and started thinking about how I keep telling people my two dream jobs, if I could have them and support the cats, the gnomes, the leprechauns, the troll, AND the dwarfs (all of whom live under my bed -- except the cats, of course, who now own the top if it), which are:

    1. To work in quaint, quiet bookstore, or

    2. To work in quaint, quiet coffeeshop.

    So, the question came to mind: what's the greats job you will never, ever have.

    Mine -- basketball player. I so wanted to be on the basketball team when I was in high school (primarily because of a very cute cheerleader) but I was only five feet even and 120 pounds sopping wet.

    Never happened. Too sad.

    So, here's a poll.

    Their is but to do and die."

    Ah, to be able to write like the Lord.

    Dictator of the world I just don't think ill be able to summon enough minions
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Where's the fun in that? Unless you're dealing with rebellions, of course.

    a hobo
    When I was a child
    I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye.
    I turned to look but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown,
    The dream is gone.
    I have become comfortably numb...

    Obviously rock star would be awesome. Unlikely, though. Other than that, I'd like to roadie for a world-famous rock band (work all day putting up stage props, hand Angus his Gibson SG and give him the thumbs up to go on stage, then afterwards go and get drunk all night, ... oh yeah, that's the life for me).

    I think I know what I'll do with my gap year now
