... Relive a Childhood Memory
Our grand daughter, who is twelve, rang to ask for help with a homework question - what job should she do when she leaves school? She is horse-mad so she'd sorted some occupational choices which featured her equine friends; a horse trainer, a horse dentist, a farrier, among others.
That question made me laugh as it brought back a vivid memory for me. I was twelve too, about to start high school and our class was given a questionnaire which asked, 'What do you want to be when you leave school?'
'How dumb,' I remember thinking, 'asking that of kids our age. We don't have to decide for years yet.'
So I wrote down 'lion tamer'!
