Hey, Mom...Can I Be A Spy When I Grow Up?
by Stephen Rickard,posted Sep 11 2011 12:26PM
If you ask a little boy what he wants to be when he grows up his answer might be fireman, astronaut, policeman, or a pirate. A little girl would most likely say princess, veterinarian, or a mommy. Teenagers would have a bit more specific and defined ideas of a future career. During the teenage years the answers to that question are more likely to be a soldier in the army, a teacher, an actress, a musician, etc… I’m not saying that being a fireman or a veterinarian aren’t reachable goals – they definitely are – but the career choices of a teenager tend to be a bit more realistic than the dreams of a child. However, I seem to be the exception to that rule. Sure, as a little girl I wanted to be the voice of a Disney princess, (funny how it works out that I ended up working in radio and doing voice work for a living,) but if you had asked me when I was 16 what I wanted to be when I grew up, my response to you would have been, “governmental assassin.” (No, I am not joking.) I wanted to be a spy. I wanted to work in intelligence and go on crazy missions and save the good old U. S. of A. Little did I realize that by in proclaiming my desire to work as a SECRET agent, I killed my chances of ever being a spy. (The key word there is SECRET. Not so “intelligent” on my part, huh?) When the show Alias came out, I was in heaven. I wanted to be Sydney Bristow. I wanted to kick massive butt and have a glamorous life. There was one slight drawback though. The whole “torture” thing just didn’t appeal to me. I have no doubts that at the first sign of a pair of pliers going towards my mouth to yank out my teeth that I would sing like a canary. Heck, I am TERRIFIED of getting a shot. (I absolutely hate needles. I’d like to get a tattoo, but I’m afraid I would make a fool out of myself and start crying in front of the tattoo artist.) It got me thinking…maybe what I really wanted to do was play a spy on TV. They get to do all the fun stuff of shooting guns, fighting (let’s be honest – it’s really choreographed combat dancing,) secret disguises, traveling, and best of all – THE TORTURE IS ALL PRETEND! So yeah…I think I still want to play a spy on TV when I grow up. Do you think Charlie’s Angels has an opening?
