Z: Mama, do you know what I want to be when I grow up?
Mom: Oh, yes- a veterinarian!
Z: What’s a veterinarian? (paused) Oh, a vet! No, I don’t want to be a vet, so I don’t have to wear an outfit.
Mom: You don’t have to wear a certain outfit to be a vet.
Z: Well, I just want to be a teacher.
Mom: A teacher?
Z: Yes. So I could stay at home and teach, and not have to wear an outfit. Then I can bake all kinds of good stuff like muffins and cookies, and read lots and lots of books to the kids.
Mom: That’s a wonderful plan, Zurielle!
