On a regular consult with my pediatrician many many many many years ago, she took out a prescription pad and outlined to me my career options. I was in grade 6, and she was already concerned about my career. Maybe she sensed that I have The Force, or at least a potential, or potentials, but I wasn’t pleased in any case because what she didn’t sense was what I really wanted to be. And that is… to be extremely obese and hairy and smelly and have my own action figure and comic book shop where I would regale my customers with endless comic book tidbits dating back to the 30’s! And do comic book podcasts on the side.
In all fairness to her, she did tell me directly, “Wag ka na mag-doktor.”
Kids, you should really really really listen to your elders.
