What I want to be when I grow up- take 15

So, my 8 year old Miss Neenee announced to me Saturday, again, “I know what I want to be when I grow up.”
“Really?” I say, “What would that be?” Typically it’s a doctor, actress, veterinarian, dancer, etc.,.
“I want to be a pharmacist.” she said.
“That sounds nice.” I say wondering if she actually knows what she’s talking about.
“Yeah,” she begins, “You know they mix up medicines & hand them out to sick people. That’s the way they help them.”
Hmmmm, well how about that?
“You do know you will have to go to Ole Miss.”, I say.
“I thought about that.” she replies very matter of factly. ” I just don’t think if you go to Ole Miss, you have to be for Ole Miss. But I want to go there, because that’s where my family goes.”
I did not know if we were having a Michael Oher & Leigh Ann Tuohy moment or what… I suppose some of the Mississippi State brainwashing is just something we have to deal with being from the South!
