Here's a recent conversation:
Carson: Have you ever taken a career test, Mom?
Me: Sure, back in college.
Carson: Do you think I could take one?
Me: Hmmm...not sure they make one for 4th graders.
Carson: 'Cuz I think it'd be really interesting and let me know what I'll be in the future.
Me: The tests don't tell you what you'll be, just make career suggestions based on your answers. What jobs do you think you might like to do?
Carson: There are 3 - Vet, Military, and photographer.
Me: Photographer, that's a new one. How come?
Carson: 'Cuz you can make like a million dollars on one picture.
Me: True, but the field is very competitive.
Carson: Yeah, but you could take a picture of someone and sell it for tons of money.
Carson: Well, if you see Hannah Montana, you take a picture of her and sell it.
Me: Yeah, but who wants to buy a picture of Hannah Montana, aren't there tons of her pictures around?
Carson: Yes, but I'll go to Canada to sell the pictures.
Me: Who will you sell the pictures to in Canada?
Me: Mexicans in Canada? Do you mean Canadians?
Carson: Oh right!
Me: Do they know who Hannah Montana is in Canada? Is she really that big in Cananda.
Carson: Hmmm...good point.
The thought process of this kid scares me! Let's focus on getting through 4th grade before you worry about career choices. I almost drove off the road laughing at the Mexican comment. :)
I can always tell when he has "borrowed" a camera as I end up with odd pictures like these when I empty the memory stick.
Hmm...maybe the kid has some talent. I personally like the picture of Molly's rear end. Just imagine Hannah Montana and I think we've found a way to fund his college! :)
