A Saturday Poll

August 25, 2007

I’m hanging at home listening to girly music. In the meantime, I have a little poll for you. Unfortunately, WordPress is cranky with polls and I don’t want to sign up for anything, so you’ll have to respond in the comments.

What should Rachel be when she “retires?”
1) A midwife.
2) A doula.
3) A sex educator. Or lactation consultant.
4) A pharmacist.
5) Retired, you weirdo. In Costa Rica.
6) Are you kidding? Your generation is never going to be able to “retire.”

Hmm. Other options.
7) An ob.gyn. Join the empire. Just kidding.
8. A clinical research manager.
9) Cat lady.

    I think you would be an awesome midwife, and if I was ever going to have kids again, I would totally have you be my midwife. That said, I an NEVER having more kids.

    If I was able to have kids, AND I wanted any more kids, I’d want you to be my mid-wife!

    But, retiring to Costa Rico sounds good too.

    Hey Ivy, what am I, chopped liver?

    A clinical research manager….BTW, you’d actually be good at this!

    from Ellen IN pITTSBURGH, who’s actually much “closer” to retirement than you will ever be 😉

    Doula. I think that’s what I’d like to be before I retire, maybe.

    Thanks, Ellen – you know I like to plan ahead. 😉

    Shauna – Very cool!

    I would go with cat lady (as I’m wont to do) but in all honesty, I think you are the most wickedly smart person I know and can do anything you set your mind to.

    As for mid-wife, if I could have babies, you would be the first one I’d call. And the islands, well, can I go with you?

    Hilary, the only reason you wouldn’t be my midwife, other than the whole, “I am NEVER having kids again” thing, is because you’re too far away. Otherwise, I’d be all over it.

    I vote for midwife…on an island! You could start a new trend for ‘destination births.’

    Julie, I think you may very well be a genius. 😉
