| || |Was I the only child who never thought about what I would be as an adult?
I don't think it crossed my mind that one day I would be all grown up and would have to earn a living, until I was about seventeen and had to choose my future career. I must have been enjoying my childhood too much.

Me too! I wanted to be a child forever. I cried like a baby when I had to make choices about my education's orientation at 15 y. o. I ended up picking the subject I preferred in school, and at university we had a career course where they made us research possible jobs, earnings, career progression etc. so I tweaked my orientation just a little bit to ensure better job opportunities.
I did think about being a "charcutière" (selling frankfurters and other sandwich-meats, but not as "bloody" as a butcher, as in no carcasses!) because that was my mother's childhood dream and I liked "fleischwurtz" from Alsace. And I also thought being a florist would be nice, but I think that was another of her ideas. Ah and when I failed a year in uni, she suggested I reorient myself to something more hands on: being a perfume-maker! I refused stubbornly and stuck to my original choice which is my profession today.
