Oh, many a morning of my youth was spent counting out change to the Helms Bakery man who sold a variety of items from his truck - donuts, bread, Rain-Blo gum, and Star Wars cards. And that lovely flat, dry powdered bubble gum that came with the cards… Ah…memories.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut, a detective, and an archaeologist.
Now somewhat older, I find myself wanting to be a Veritech or Viper pilot, an ocarina-playing, puzzle-solving adventurer, a rogue wielding the sharpest of blades when facing dragons, a vanguard brokering peace, protecting her friends, and maybe, just maybe, saving the galaxy.
If there’s anything the years have given me, it’s the ability to be a little more specific in my ambitions. ^_^
