(Ok, I guess it's 'Throwback Thursday'... Here's another (Facebook) post I wrote on Monday, August 11, 2008 at 5:30pm.. :D)
At lunchtime today, an ad was running on TV, kids were saying what they would want to be when they grow up (if they grow up).
I was touched to hear such innocent ambitions and I said "awwww, dats sweet" and Mag says "Hmmmppphh, stooory, all of that will never happen and I'll prove it right here and now, in this canteen".
So the survey started, and yours truly started asking everyone what their dreams where when they where younger. Akin said he wanted to be a policeman (I work in an IT firm by the way), Kunle wanted to be a pilot, Glo wanted to be a nurse (I forgot to ask Ms. B, the caterer what her dreams where). And so in less than 5 mins, in a room with about 12 people only Chidi wanted to be an engineer which he is now, hmmmpphhh.
Yours truly wanted to be two things actually - Newscaster ( inspired by the then Sene Alwell-Brown), I used to practise memorizing stories on the newspaper and looking up to read it without looking into the paper, it was so haaarrrd, if only I had known there was a screen right in front of those guys where they were reading it off from *iiisssshhh*, I would have kept at it. Then, I wanted to be a Doctor, but I don't like the sight of blood, or wounds or lifeless bodies, how I for do am na? -_-
In summary, Mag's theory proven without much arithmetic..... but I still believe...
