Career Aspirations

My friend Natasha was riding in the truck with us this morning, & asked Asher what he’d like to be when he grows up.


Asher: “I want to be a person who works at Tim Horton’s!”


Chancery had to let us know that she had given some thought to the subject as well.


Chancery: “And I want to be a big man when I grow up!”


Natasha: “Well, that might be a bit difficult.  Do you think you could be a lady when you grow up instead?”


Chancery: “Yes.”



I was telling PChad about the conversation over lunch, & the kids told PChad their vocational choices.  Chancery still wanted to be a ‘big man’…


PChad informed her, “You are going to be a lady when you grow up, Chancery.”


“I want to be a BIG lady!” she retorted.


So I asked her, “Do you want to be a big, important lady, or a big, fat lady?”


Chancery responded with enthusiasm, “I want to be a big FAT lady!!!”
