Every kid has something they want to be when they grow up. Some are the normal, apparently VERY cool, fireman, doctor, or astronaut… But no, I was different.
I really loved animals as a kid, (just a reminder, the ‘duck incident, also an accident) but I had watched waaay to much tv to want to be a vet. Because well, blood and all that. And normal careers didn’t appeal to me…although at 8, all that was appealing consisted of barbies and dogs.
But the very bright 8 year old me had a plan, a rather creative one to be honest!
The plan was to own a pet shop, but get someone to manage it of course-free access to fun animal time and to be a checkout lady- the cool beeping machine aaand a till to play around on.
Because a child’s mind is the best.
