Mid-Week Smile

I was watching television last night and as usual when the adverts came on I reached for the remote to block the noise--no sense having a mute button if you don't use it. By the time I'd unearthed it from beneath the couch throw and Max's butt, I'd been captivated by one of the ads.

It was for an online university.  Several children--I'd say between 5 and 8 years old--are responding to a question. They're various ethnicities, a mix of boys and girls, in different locales from playground to backyard to bedroom window. They're also seriously answering the question, until the last kid.  I actually laughed out loud.

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"

Girl:  A lawyer

Boy:  Superhero

Girl:  Nurse

Boy:  Architect

Girl:  Teach gymnastics

Girl:  Work in an office like my mom

Boy:  I wanna be a marshmallow


Still makes me smile...


  1. Dear terlee,
    Thank you SO much for your wonderful congratulations on my blog! My answer is a bit late since I've been absent from the blogging world for quite a while, but your comment was still very much appreciated :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season!
    I love that story about the ad!! A marshmallow? I just laughed out loud, too. Thank you for sharing :) :)

    1. I'm hoping that at some point, you'll share some photos of the wedding. You both looked so wonderful in the one posted on Keith's blog. So happy for both of you...

      What that boy said was so surprising, you can't help but laugh! ;D
