Story #281 - What do you want to be when you grow up?

"Well, children, what do you want to be when you're older?"
"I want to be a nurse because I like to help people."
"Very nice, but you should know it doesn't pay well. Anyone else?"
"I want to be a teacher like you."
"Admirable, darling, but you might get disappointed easily."
"I want to be a footballer."
"In the Premier League?"
"You better hope so, otherwise you won't make enough money."
"Teacher, why are you so upset?"
"The world isn't fair, love, and it gets you down sometimes. I'm down, too."
"Oh, don't worry, teacher. I'll write you a story and you'll feel better after you read it."
"Thanks. Then I'll get back to reality."
