You know, the one you picked when you were 6yrs old and thought was the coolest thing in the world?

Mine was a big truck driver.
Now, it would be in some sort of weapon sales.

Mine was footballer, Captained the county, My City and School and even joined the Army to play as it paid 500 quid a month and got me a trade as against YTS £29.50..........

Left knee exploding into bits ended that, I did manage to play on the same pitch as Socrates though.

Fair play. Good shout. Sorry about the knee, and Socrates, I've got one up on that - I played at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium, it's a world class facility built for world class footballers. Look it up. Impressive.

That's a cool job.

If I was being more serious, instead of weapon / arms dealing I'd love to be a senior sports journalist.

'Senior sports journalist'? If you want to do it you'd just want to be a sports journalist, surely? Or do you also want to be old?

Initially ballet, then later what was called 'jazz dance' which was a bit more hot gossip/broadway show.
