When I Grow Up

When I Grow Up…

By Breelee Dempsey

After reading the book, When I Grow Up, by Al Yankovic, I began thinking about what I want to be when I grow up. I want to be an adventurer and write about my adventures, sharing my exciting life with my readers through my book.  I might travel to a rain forest or maybe even go to a jungle.  I will examine the animals and their habitats, serving as a conservationist to save endangered species and habitats.  In the rain forest, I will have to build my own shelter and learn to eat food found in the rain forest.  I might have to eat flowers, spiders, beetles, or bats, I will be like Timon from “Lion King”. I will learn to be observant so I am aware of dangers in my surroundings.  I might encounter a leopard or a cheetah, a gorilla or a pirhana.  I might have to go for days without a bath, but I am just fine with that.

As an adventurer, I will scuba dive and swim with dolphins, whales and maybe even sharks.  I will dive deep down in the ocean and see many amazing things like sting rays, eels, and crabs.  I want to see if the eels are really electric and flash in the dark.  I might find sunken treasures.  If I find the wreckage from the Titanic, I will donate the items to a museum.  I will live on a boat and eat fish and sea weed.

My life as an adventurer will be awesome and fun.  I cannot wait to begin this life.  I will get started right after I get my college education in Animal Science at Texas Tech.  Be sure and read my book and learn of my adventures.
