We all dream of being something interesting when we grow up. Here are three possibilities I considered.
1. A model - I dreamed of being Phoebe Cates. I subscribed to Seventeen magazine and SO wanted to be her (even if I didn't think she was a very good actress.) There's not much call for short models, though.
2. Stewardess - Back when they called them stewardesses, too! I loved the trashy book Coffee, Tea, or Me! I wanted to live that jet-setter life, traveling, meeting rich men, and dig those boots! Unfortunately, I was too short for that, too. Have to be able to reach those overhead compartments, I suppose.
3. A Professional Figure Skater - Peggy Fleming (right) and Dorothy Hamill (wanted her hair, too) Ekaterina Gordeeva were so graceful. I, on the other hand, am not particularly athletic.
What did you want to be?
