    Plastic surgeon to the stars, crafting shapely breasts with a chain of clinics in Malibu, Miami, Maui, Seoul, Tokyo, Paris, Milan, Rio, and on Park Ave in NYC.

    I'd advertise on TV with bikini babes and delegate the boring tummy tucks and facelifts to my assistants.

    Lawyer or airline pilot. Maybe a police officer, but they don't get paid nearly enough. You guys don't, really.

    I loved what I did. I would do it again in a bet.

    I retired after 40 years.

    My wife and I discuss this quite a bit. Mainly, because in about 8.5 - 9 years, I predict I will be tapped out in my career. I will have over 20 years in at my current employer, and yet only be 40 years old by then. I will be able to retire at that time, and draw a mediocre pension for life with health benefits, or wait to draw the retirement later and let it earn interest. In the latter case, I'd have to go do something for money obviously.

    Probably not anything major, cause the house will be paid for by then, etc. But I mean, I will only be 40 so I could start a whole new career if I wanted.

    I've decided I'll go work at my happy place, Lowes. I'm sure the customers will ruin it for me, but it looks fun. And it's gotta be less stressful.

    You can do it. It's hard, but never let that stop you.

    In the late 70's/early 80's, when women of her age didn't do such things, and she got a lot of ***** about being a working wife, she went from being a housewife to college student to nurse.

    My mother got her nursing degree at age 42. I graduated high school the June before she graduated college!

    There's big demand for large animal vets here in the midwest. Most vet students decide on the foo foo dogs anymore.

    I did it for three hours. People always gloss over the huge downside to being a male stripper. Paper cuts.
