I wanted to be an astronaut and go to the moon. I was hoping I would find dinosaurs there. I kid you not. I even wrote a story about it in Grade 1*. The astronauts, sadly, were devoured by the space T-Rex.
* Actually, this is obviously later since I'm writing and not printing. I'm sort of hazy about when I learned to do all this stuff. But I could read Dr. Seuss by the time I started Kindergarten.
