    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.
