A bright future

Please, no one be offended by this post. It’s written in good humor.

One thing the Romgi and I find particularly amusing, because it’s so ridiculous, is when the Bwun plays with some object and a person remarks, “Oh! He likes ___! I bet he’ll be a ___ when he grows up.”

It doesn’t take a lot of thought to realize that the likelihood of the Bwun following a career path based on a toy he played with as a one-year-old is slim. Here are some examples of things we’ve heard:

  • He likes playing with money! I bet he’ll be a businessman when he grows up.
  • He likes dinosaurs! I bet he’ll be a paleontologist when he grows up.
  • He likes coloring! I bet he’ll be an artist when he grows up.
  • He likes playing with pots and pans! I bet he’ll be a chef when he grows up.

You do see that these are all far-fetched, right? So the Romgi and I like to spend some of our spare moments coming up with equally ridiculous remarks. Some of our favorites:

  • He likes trying to eat his hand! I bet he’ll be a cannibal when he grows you. (Ok, the Romgi doesn’t like this one. But I do.)
  • He likes putting things in the trash! I bet he’ll be a garbage collector when he grows up.
  • He likes deleting files from your computer! I bet he’ll be a hacker when he grows up.
  • He likes to vacuum! I bet he’ll be a janitor when he grows up.

And the best one we’ve thought of yet…

  • He likes taking credit cards out of your wallet! I bet he’ll be a pickpocket when he grows up. (The Bwun really, really loves taking cards out of our wallets. And hiding them.)

  1. We haven’t run into this yet, thankfully, but I don’t think it’s too far off. A current possibility: She really likes eating paper! I bet she’ll be a bureaucrat when she grows up.

    I thought of one today too while Harrison was running around our dining room table. “Wow, look at him run around in circles! He seems to like it. Maybe he’ll be a track star?!” ha ha ha ha.
