For homework, the Cheese brought home a “I’d like to get to know you” page to fill out. Most of the questions were pretty standard: “My pets are…” and “At home, I love to…”
The best one, however, turned out to be the question, “When I grow up, I want to be…”
His first answer was that he wants to be a contestant on the show “Wipeout.” His father and I told him that a game show, albeit a funny one where people get knocked down into mud pits and freezing cold water, doesn’t really count as a regular job. So, he came up with a new one all by himself.
“When I grow up, I want to be a McDonald’s drive-thru worker.”
And there you have it.
Dream big, son. Dream big.
