When I Grow Up
A mother's four-year-old daughter was attending her first performance of the Ice Capades.
She was so mesmerized that she wouldn't budge from her seat, even during intermission. She watched the activity while the ice was cleaned.
At the end of the show, she exclaimed, "I know what I want to be when I grow up!"
The mother envisioned her on the ice in another 15 years, starring in the Ice Capades.
She was brought back to Earth when she continued, "I want to be a zamboni driver!"
A crew of highway maintenance workers were sent to repair some road signs that vandals had knocked down in a forested area.
The first one they put back up was a symbol warning of a deer crossing.
As they moved down the road to repair the next sign, one member of the crew looked back and spotted a deer running across the highway.
She turned to a co-worker and said, "I wonder how long he's been waiting to cross."
The kids in the neighborhood held an election.
The grownups were astonished that a four-year-old had been elected president.
"That boy must be a born leader," one Dad observed. "How does it happen that all you bigger boys voted for him?"
"Well, you see Dad," one lad replied. "He cannot very well be secretary because he doesn't know how to write. He would not do for treasurer because he is not able to count. He would never do for sergeant- at-arms because he is too little to throw anybody out. If we did not choose him for anything, he would feel bad.
So we made him president."
