#4-You in the Future

You in the Future

If you’re like most kids, you sometimes wonder what you’ll be when you grow up.

When Georgie, Oddny, Lana, and I talked about it, here’s what we said:

Georgie started. “In ten years I will be a Navy jet pilot. Or maybe Air Force.”

Oddny 31

Oddny went next. “I’m going to double Georgie. In twenty years I’ll be thirty-one, so I will be a scientist like my father, and I will be married and have two kids, and I will travel all over the world studying oceans and fish.”

Lana 51Lana said, “In forty years—I’m doubling Oddny—I’ll be fifty-one, and I’ll be living in a big city. I mean, I really like Gloucester and all that, but if I’m going to be a doctor doing research on diseases, I think I’ll work at a big hospital or university or something.”

“Yeah,” Georgie said, “the title will be Cheesie Mack Is Getting New False Teeth.

What will you be doing in the future?
