Lets start with a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to all the wonderful Moms doing what I think is one of the hardest jobs out there! Have a Great day and I hope you all receive something wonderfully homemade. Those are my favorite gifts without a doubt !
Okay Ladies if you could live a day in the life of a career of your choosing, what would you pick. You would have complete knowledge of your chosen career for 24 hours.
I was torn between two. It was either a Lawyer in a high profile case on the day I was to plead my case to the jury, or a Trauma Doctor in the ER on a day the ER was full.
I will go with a Trauma Doctor in the ER because I would have the skill and ability to save lives. I think it would be incredible to have the knowledge of a Trauma Surgeon. I love real life in the ER shows. It shows what these amazing people do on a daily basis. The adrenaline must be incredible when you are faced with several lives needing to be saved at the same time. To have the calmness and make decisions confidently with moments to spare would be a skill I would love to have. To be right in the thick of a busy ER going from patient to patient, having to assess each one quickly and correctly would be so challenging. I have always had an interest in First Aid and have taken courses, but to do what these Doctors and Nurses do is so far beyond all of us I would love to be in their shoes for just one day. I think being a Trauma Nurse or Doctor would be one of the most rewarding and satisfying careers one could have. I understand that there is a very dark side to this profession but these individuals know this going in and STILL continue the journey because they feel so passionately about saving lives. I know a couple of ladies Jill and Michelle who work at BC Children’s Hospital in emergency and they to me are incredible human beings who I admire so much for their contribution to helping save children’s lives. Nurses and Doctors are a different breed. I admire both.

Ok, don’t laugh, but I would definitely choose to be a rock star. I don’t think I’d be hard rock. I’d like to be a bit Sheryl Crow/Sarah McLachlin/Alicia Keys/KT Tunstall/Carrie Underwood/(I could go on and on) all rolled into one! In this fantasy I would have great range and could basically pull off any song you asked me to perform. Plus I could play a number of instruments; guitar, piano, flute, saxophone, drums even. Ooooo, and when I dance on stage I can move like Shakira.
Music makes me feel so good. Belting out a song I love and then actually have people want to pay me large amounts of money to hear me perform it…well, it just couldn’t get any better than that! I wouldn’t be saving peoples lives like Tracy. Nothing that lofty, but inspiring people through music is kind of nice.
This one’s a no-brainer for me. In fact, I mentioned it to Tracy a few weeks ago so I’m really not trying to copycat you, Bonnie!
I had a dream that started when I was 18 that I was lead singer for the 70’s/80’s group Chicago for a one-night only performance in Paris. No kidding. Stand aside, Peter Cetera. I had been rudely dumped by a Parisian boyfriend when I was over there (this is the true part of the story) and I thought it would be such sweet revenge to come back to the city of love and show the jerk what an amazing success I had made of my life. Ha ha! I had been a huge fan of Chicago and knew the lyrics to all of their songs so I really thought I could pull it off. Other than that I’ve never had any interest in being a musical performer.
Yeah….I’d definitely go for the 24 hour Paris gig even now. There’s no statute of limitations on payback. ; )
