What do you want to be when you grow up? Wed, 03/8/06 8:24 PM (permalink)
A guy meets a childhood pal. "What are you doing for yourself these days?"
"I'm a fireman," his old friend replies.
"Yeah? My 15-year-old kid wants to be a fireman," says the guy.
"Well," says his friend, "if you want some good advice, you've got to install a pole in your house that will go to the basement so your kid can practice, because the hardest thing for a fireman is to jump off into space and catch that pole in the middle of the night."
Ten years later, the two guys happen to meet again.
"Well, did your son become a fireman?"
"No," moans the guy, "but my daughter became a stripper."

    roossy90, that reminds me of, I think the funniest bit on a sitcom in history.
    On the King Of Queens the wife takes up pole dancing to turn her man on but it doesn't then husband Kevin James shows her how and does the funniest take on the most authentic sexy woman pole dancing. I saw it again on a rerun and I think it's funnier each time I see it.

      I bet that is funny to watch. I must try to remember it whenever I catch a re-run, which isn't that often.

        Since I NEVER plan to grow up, it's a moot question!

            This is a hard one....
            I know what I don't want to be.
            1. Abusive
            2. Neglectful
            3. Selfish
            4. Liar
            5. Narrow-minded
            6. Unforgiving
            7. Close-minded

            Thats bout all I got.

                        I guess I have to play the lottery to actually win it.

                                I want to be a book critic, or a librarian, or an editor, or someone who gets to read a lot. Or, a gourmet chef! But I'm much better at reading than I am at cooking (I try, but it doesn't come naturally) so I'd better stick with the editor bit.

                                The truth is, I'd love to write. Maybe someday I will!
