    I would be a writer, or go back to school and major in English. Or both.

    I would open a small bookstore-coffee shop... located somewhere warm.... with a view of the ocean or mountain.

    I would own a bookstore. I would drink coffee and tea all day and read and talk books while my dog sat comfortably at my feet.

    OK, if I were younger, I would like to be a federal agent such as ATF, FBI, DEA. But, since I am not- I tell everyone that my dream job is to own a laundromat. Seriously.
    Please don't judge me.

    Because I love to read and cannot imagine not being able to, I would volunteer in an adult literacy program.

    I'd love to work in a bookstore again. That was my favorite job, that and my library job. Heh, I totally should have been a librarian. SHHHHH!!

    I'm attracted to introvert-type jobs such as long-distance truck driving, librarianship, grounds-keeping, and working at home.

    I'd love to work as a mortician, because dead people don't complain.
