#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?

Comments from my Readers & Friends

    • That’s a great plan. I’ve actually visited schools in Las Vegas before. It would be very cool to come back.

  1. In 15 years I will be the author of an amazing best selling book! Go authors!

    • That is a terrific goal. I read somewhere that whoever discovers a new species gets to name it. If that’s true and you find a new kind of frog, you could call it rana vinnuiana!

  2. In 20 years i’ll be 31 so I would be a doctor, a singer or a (I no they don’t have this but I wish)a pro softball player.

  3. In ten years, i’ll be 19 and be as fast as Sonic the Hedgehog. Go Sonic and Shadow!

          • In the theme song for Sonic X, it says “fast as the speed of sound”. There is more to the song, but that is the part I wanted to point out.

  4. In 20 years I will be an astronomer studying the stars and discovering and naming new planets

  5. In 30 years from now I will be a famous architect and live in a mansion and have a husband and have 2 kids and live in California! 😀
