    Me either. I always heard it end in 'floor' as in fall down drunk not the other which seems to imply that women who drink suddenly start charging men for sex. Perhaps I have led a sheltered life.

    As for the original question, I would like to run a small restaurant/coffee shop. That or be like Steve Irwin. I love me some reptiles, though not in a tequila way.

      It's not that literal. Whore just rhymes with four/floor, etc.

            Do what I do know. It's what I've wanted to do since kindergarten.

              You just HAVE to read Tales of a Female Nomad. It's an autobiography of a woman who has done exactly that.

              I'm not sure what I would do. I would like to hike and travel part of the year and just hang out in coffee shops and read the rest of the year. If I had any musical talent, I'd busk for extra cash.

              I once had this really strange vision while taking a basketry class. I had the strangest sensation that I was not being taught how to make baskets. I was remembering how to make baskets and I could see myself sitting on a dirt floor making big baskets with other people. So if it was me in a Grok-ish time, perhaps I would be a basketmaker.

                I am doing what I want, I am an artist. I make things. I can paint, draw, and I also make films, collages, and other 3d constructions, books, subversions. In other words I use the medium that fits the idea. Although not currently famous, I would like to be in history books someday. I am not embarrassed to say so.

                If I had another lifetime I have thought about being a singer. I have a fair voice and I think with training it could be pretty good.

                Or maybe a chef since I also love to cook.

                But then again, I have also thought about being a carpenter, or a clothing designer...

                    I adore baskets - I have a whole stack of them, some from Germany and some from Ghana (through a minor tribal prince I once knew back in Jersey), but all of them are sturdy beyond belief and completely useful. Awesome vision.

                          World-traveling wildlife vet. Still have that goal in mind, though the achievable, living-wage-earning reality will probably be more along the lines of overly educated zoonotic disease researcher who spends a modicum of time in the field. And not nearly enough time staging midnight lion captures or darting elephants from a helicopter

                            Now that I think more about it, the more I love my job - banking in tech. I'll probably receive a lot of hating, but I really do enjoy watching monetary resources allocated to companies I see fit. And those companies continue to improve the standard of life for people as a whole, which is what I love about technology. Also, I'm a mathematician at heart, so it's fun watching other bankers bust out their calculators while I solve stuff way faster in my head.

                              I've already answered before: I'm doing it!

                              I teach yoga, run a holistic health center. It rocks.

                              I just did a day of continuing education, and look forward to that continuing on as well (I did level 1 postural pattern training).

                                Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
