My 3rd grade(?) assignment: Create in diorama form, what you want to be when you grow up. I wanted to be a teacher. Actually I knew wife and mother wasn’t going to be an acceptable answer so I settled. It was the 70s. They burned their bras and I was paying for it.
My best friend Kathy wanted to be Julie from The Love Boat, complete with a cruise ship and paper ocean waters in her shoebox. And that is why I loved her. If I had been thinking outside of the box back then I could have decided on crown maker years ago!
My shortlist of career options throughout the years:
Garbage Man – I thought they only worked one day a week since they only picked up our trash one day a week. Plus, think of all of the treasures you could find. And who wouldn’t want to ride on the back of the truck like that?
Teacher – As seen in the diorama
Lawyer – huh?
Interior Designer – Getting my fix at my own house
Photo/Prop Stylist – Still my dream job!
I’m a crown maker, which I have to say is a cool profession, but I’m still looking for that one-day-a-week job……
Which leads me to the question, is it Friday yet?
*My mom saved my diorama. That’s really it!
Celebrate the day! Let Scarlett Dalila show you the way.
