Over Mother's Day weekend, Mom and I were talking about a recent segment on GMA: the reporters spending a day living their dream. Admittedly a very self-indulgent segment but it inspired interesting conversation.
If you had one day to "live the dream" what would that dream be?
I told Mom mine and when Ross walked into the room, asked if he could guess mine. He didn't even hesitate "you'd travel someplace." Bingo. I would like that travel place to be backpacking in Europe but if I'm really confined to one day, it might be a day trip down to Fredericksburg or some other nifty place within a couple hours drive of Austin.
I guessed Ross' dream and was also spot on: to play with puppies. I can't tell you how many times he's told me he wants to be paid to play with puppies. As I tell him, he could be but we wouldn't be very well off. His perfect retirement plan is to own a doggy day care...and live in West Texas.
Mom's was a hot air balloon ride I believe. From GMA, some of the dreams were playing baseball with A-Rod, learning to fly or being a pro poker player.
I've tried to think of some of my family and friends but I don't think I know too many people's odd-ball dreams. I know career goals, family aspirations, educational aims but not odd-ball dreams. So what would yours be?
