    Closing in on my 35th and my childhood goal to be in the FBI has never panned out.

    Not that I regret that, just something I wanted to be. What did you want to be but didn't?

    Police/military. Though I enlisted in the Navy years ago, I got a medical discharge for having asthma. Now, with a bad back (herniated L5) I could never become a police officer. Plus, I hate to say this, but they do not get paid near enough for what they do for us on a daily basis. So now I fix car. Not exactly a childhood dream, but it pays the bills.

    I wanted to own my own business and be my own boss. That hasn't happened yet. I am happy working in IT and it pays the bills. Being 35 with 3 small children, the timing just isn't right. But I am still holding on to that dream. My dad was in his 40s when his childhood dream of being a pilot for a living came true, he has since retired in manner that most of us have dreamed about once or twice (sail boat in Mexico).

    I did marry my childhood sweet heart! Meat at 6, in and out of each others lives until we got married at 32. So I am one for two with a lot of time left (I hope).

    I don't accept the fact that you're not an old bastard. Or maybe I don't crept the fact that I'm not much younger than you.

    As a kid I remember going to Mc Donalds and thinking about how good that food was, now I can't stand that place. I miss the Jolly Cone and Foster's Freeze we had.

    I miss the ice cream shop we used to go to when I played baseball. It's still there but nothing like it used to be.

    I absolutely LOVE McDonalds! I remember as a kid always getting in trouble for climbing out between the bars on the Hamburger and sitting on its roof :anonymous:

    Growing up in Arizona, those things were damn hot in the summer. I didn't care, I burned the shit out of my hands climbing up and sliding. I too got in trouble for climbing outside the bars and onto the top of the hamburger.

    For some reason, my biggest memory of McDonald's as a kid was the styrofoam trays and stuff the food came in. I remember all the play areas, but the containers are what i remember the most.
