Okay, let's assume you love what you do, which is why you're doing it. Yet, somewhere, sometimes, somehow you occasionally think GEE, if I wasn't doing THIS, maybe THAT would also be fun....
My question: what might THAT be??
I nearly became a mineralogist, for example. And THANK GOD I have friends who run animal shelters because that is one TEMPTING profession.... How's by everyone?

At this point, any job that doesn't include me writing smarmy greeting cards or spending money rather than making money sounds wonderful. Meter maid, perhaps- I'd get to wear those jaunty little shorts and wield a dangerous notebook full potential citations.

Mmmmmmmm. If I can't do what I'm doing, I'd like to be a scofflaw on Saundra's beat

When I was a little kid (up to a medium-sized kid, perhaps), I would pretend that I ran a hotel. I figured that would be a neat job; seeing people from other places and all. It would probably turn out like Faulty Towers, but maybe that's the best part.
Even waiting tables or serving coffee/beer/ice cream might be fun, if you could develop some sort of rapport. I'm just assuming it would be a more pleasant affair than what I have going with my current customers. Meter Maid Saundra would always get a free cup of whatever after a hard day of punishing petulant parkers.
I probably have the memory to be a doctor, and I've grown to think of it as a more respectable profession. Since my hands shake and the whole precious bodily fluids of others thing kind of puts me off, though, perhaps we're better off.
