What do you want to be when you grow up?

As every decade passes my answer changes.

Right now in my 6th decade, my answer would be, to be a sage (this involves martial arts) this is a very serious undertaking, which involves as much laughter as possible.

And you, what do you want to be, beside being incredibly rich and good looking, with a ton of popularity and status?

A worthy representative of karate and those who have taught me. Fit enough to keep practising until a very advanced age. All those Okinawan karate legends still training at over 80years old are a true inspiration.

As a side note, asking guys what they want to be when they grow up is a bit absurd...

Guys donít grow up; we just get older. Just when I think my father, who is 69 years old is a grownup, I see him with his brothers and his friends and watch him do the same stupid things and make the same stupid jokes my siblings and I do.

When I grow/if up, I will know what I want when I get there, till then, it is on a need to know basis, as I don't need to know right now, then it is a wait and see what happens thing, unless there are unforeseeable circumstances, that change my mind to the contrary, that make me want to know right now, but I doubt it.
