In Parallel

Scott has been adding to his list of what he wants to be when he grows up.  The other day he added a third career. 

"First I want to be an ambulance driver, then I want to be an astronaut, then I want to be a paleontologist."

Did we point out the unlikelihood of managing all three of these careers?  No.
Did we simply encourage him that he can do it if he works hard?  Of course not.
Instead, geeky parents that we are, we tried to help him streamline his goals.  M was quick to suggest that perhaps he could be the first aid specialist on a mission to excavate fossils on another planet.

Does anyone know of a college that lets you study to become an EMT certified xenobiologist???
