RE: Random Thought of the Day - Daily Contest #41 - What did you want to be when you grew up?
I watched the challenger explode in middle school watching it together in the classroom. I did not want to be a spaceman. Back then I was sick of being poor and wanted to buy buildings and collect rent. By the time I got to high school I saw how meaningless that was and everything else in the world. Our economics teacher asked us what we want to do after high school. I said, "I want to be a paper back writer."
