Things I wanted to be when I grew up
“G.I. Joe.” Just generically G.I. Joe. No specific character. I think that’s weird, looking back, but whatever. (Early 80’s.)
A Ninja. Also generic, though again G.I. Joe influenced – Storm Shadow. Except no gay outfit, I was traditional black pajamas for many Halloweens. (Also early 80’s.)
An FBI Agent. Thanks to Twin Peaks, of course. (1990-92.)
A geologist. Besides a life-long love for rocks and shit, my freshman adviser in college tried to steer me in this direction. (1992-93.)
I decided to go with History instead because, despite all my dreams, I really liked hearing about people being slaughtered by devious fucks.
