    What did you want to be when you grew up...and what did you turn out to be?

    Anybody actually turn out to be what you dreamed of as a kid?

    I'll start...

    Wanted to be: a paramedic (mainly due to the TV show Emercency!)

    Turned out to be: a pastor

    Guess I ended up in the life-saving business anyway.

    I wanted to be (heck, I still want to be) a centerfielder for the Cincinnati Reds.
    I decided to become a lawyer when I was a senior in high school and that's what I have been now for 26+ years ( I'm about to give up on that centerfielder thing).

    RB...how far did your "baseball career" take you? Just curious. Mine ended when I graduated from HS.

    I wanted to be an astronaut

    As for what I ended up being, I'll let you know when I grow up.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I wanted to fly the F-15E Strike Eagle
    I ended up being a pilot for the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Though I'm not flying the F-15E, I still get paid to fly so I have no complaints.

    I wanted to be a bad ass. I succeeded.

    Hey, I never said I was any good; I just stated what I wanted to be. I hit .500 my senior year in high school, yet I received no offers from the Reds (maybe the fact I only had two official at bats that season had something to do with that ).

    I wanted to be an Orthopedic Surgeon.

    I'm an Intelligence Analyst.

    And dman - I still want to fly an F-15E. It has to be an E.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    Radio DJ, teacher, or actor

    I'm not quite a DJ, but I'm in the business, and have found other directions to look into.

    The F-15E with the Conformal Fuel Tanks and all the air-to-ground ordinance sets the "E" apart from any other variant doesn't it?

    I wanted to work in public service and I have been fortunate enough to do so for the past 18 years.

    Well I am only 13 and would like to be a sports journalist or reporter. What I will turn out to be? I don't know.
