As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Are you far off the mark?
Advertisements [?]
I wanted to be a nun with an orphanage. I was not catholic but I felt for a nanny I had who grew up in a catholic run orphanage. Later on, as a young teen I wanted to be divorced. Not married.... divorced.

No surprise I am solitary and single as an adult. LOL!
