Growing up

Doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Spoiled for choice, pint-sized me daydreamed all the super cool adventures he would go on as an adult.

In a crisp white coat, I’d be the doc handing out band-aids and curing cancer. Or maybe, I’d be a superhero-lawyer, standing against injustice everywhere. Ooh, or a race-car engineer making the zoomiest, flashiest cars that go vroom-vroom!

Snap, I'm all grown up. Back in my chair, stuck in an oversized Zoom call. Someone made a funny joke. I laughed, but oops… my mic was off. I tap ‘unmute’ and laugh again. A bit late, but hey, at least I made some noise.
