ah....now, that's a change!

as medicine seems to be the perennial flavour-of-the-month amongst young, impressionable school-leavers, it was indeed a refreshing change that someone else intends to pursue a different career path....


smart boy - not for him are those long hours & late nites his father spends at the hospital. still, it's early days yet & he could change his mind later. after all, i had wanted to be a bus conductor before.

see where i ended up?

Luckily you didn't become a bus conductor, or you will be out of job today! (bus conductors are no longer needed)

Eugene,

i'm not taking that too seriously - he may have to change if he gets short-sighted, which he will the way he reads, writes & plays with his gameboy.

Yvonne,

those days we don't think too far ahead - a one-man operated bus was unheard of!

doc said...

Tempus,

my son's.

I had always wanted to be either a Maths teacher or a bank teller 'coz I love counting money *lol*. Instead I ended up as a Quant - which is not so far off 'coz I get to do alot of maths with other people's money. *smirks*

Cara,

it must be a mind-boggling experience to see all that zillions changing hands in split seconds.

don't you wish you could grab a handful & stuff it in your pocket??

(i can't do this well but here goes...*smirks*)
