What Do You Want To Be?

Setting: A conversation between 3 children and their babysitting auntie from long time ago..

Babysitter: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Kid#1: I want to be...an engineer!

Babysitter: Okay, just like your dad.

Kid#2: Me, too!

Babysitter: Yeah, your dad's an engineer too.  (turns toward her daughter)  How about you?

Daughter: I want to be...a grad student!

(Her father was in grad school for many years...  Apologies to all the grad students in our midst for this depressing story)
