What do I want to be when I grow up?

I was tagged by RPW for this meme, which actually looks harder to me than some. Here it is.... "What did you want to be when you were 5, 10, 15, and 20?

When I was five I am pretty sure that I wanted to be a teacher. I made my three year old brother and my mom be my students so that I could play school. I also wanted to be a ballet dancer. That was before the I understood the reality of the body type that I possess. It is a type that has served generations of sturdy German farm wives very well. It is not a ballet body.

When I was 10 I wanted to manage a department store because my friend Jandha had the best clothes and her dad was the manager at J.C. Penney.

When I was 15 I wanted to be a writer.

When I was 20 I still wanted to be a writer.

Now I'm 42 and I still want to be a writer. I've written a lot and have even been paid for some of it, but I want to do more.

Who can I tag? I don't think that there are any Loopers left so I'll go outside the Looper bounds and tag Jen and Bethany.

Haha. I know that body type. It's the same type that has given me these Northwest Ohio Farm Wife Pie Crust Rolling Arms.

Oh, fun, and easy for me I think. Now, if you'd asked what I want to be when I grow up now? That would be hard. I'll post mine tomorrow.
