Stuff I Learned the Hard Way: “Assassin” is NOT a Socially Acceptable Career Choice

    You would’ve been my kind of playmate! ROFL.

      LOL. You would have been the only one. After that, all the other kids avoided me for some reason…

    Good one, Jacqui.

      Thanks, Janice. I just wish I could tell childhood stories that didn’t make me sound like a potential psychotic/mad scientist/complete idiot.

    Awesome! I don’t think my wife has learned this *yet*, so she writes about assassins instead.

      Writing about assassins is probably safer than announcing to your entire kindergarten class that you actually wanted to be one. I thought my teacher was going to have a stroke.
