When being asked about his future, Đạo always replies that he wants to a doctor. His answer is consistent because his mom would like him to be a doctor to help other people when they are sick. Đán, on the other hand, makes up his own mind. One time we were waiting to get off the airplane and the boys were having a conversation with a woman. When she asked them what they wanted to do when they grow up, Đạo gave his usual response and Đán said, “A pizza make.” She smiled at me and said, “Well, my niece’s dream job is to work at Dunkin’ Donuts.”

When we went to a seafood restaurant for my niece’s wedding rehearsal, they provided each customer a wooden hammer to crack the crab’s leg. Đán enjoyed banging the crabs so much that he switched his occupation to a crab banger. Several weeks ago, I took him to Wendy’s and ordered him some fried fish. He loved so much that he wanted to become a fish maker. Last night he told me he wanted to be a Toys “R” Us cashier so he could get all the toys for free. I am wondering what he will be next.
