In The Mind of a Ten Year Old
"When I get to be Luke's age (that's 16), I'm gonna get a job at Steak n' Shake and then I'll get discounts on shakes!"
"When I get older, I'll waltz (yes, he actually said waltz!) into Cracker Barrel and start working for them." Sideways glance. "Tips, man."
"When I get to be about sixty-five ..."
Me: You're going to work as a waiter at Cracker Barrel your whole life?
"They have tips. Matt made, like, seventy-five dollars in one night!"
"After I'm done at Cracker Barrel, I'm gonna travel around the world preaching. I'll preach in Paris and New York."
I asked if he would have a family.
"I'm gonna have four children. Twin boys and twin girls. I'm gonna name the boys, so my wife can probably name the girls."
I agreed that was fair, and then asked him who his wife would be.
"I don't know yet. But if she's hot and she's saved, I'm gonna get her!"
Dontcha just love his confidence? And His criteria! So what about you? What're you going to be when you grow up?
As for me, I plan on being a lot more of what I am now, only better. Hey, I can dream too!
