Sara had dreamed of a fluffy white kitten, who wore a pink bow and spent its days sitting on her lap. Until she met Tiger. (124)

Tiger’s dream of a playmate had finally been realized. If only he could find its head and tail. (95)

A future as an exercise ball instructor? Not likely. Soccer wasn’t looking good either. It’s tough when dreams collide with reality. (136)

I’m not sure what Tiger’s future holds, but I’m guessing he won’t become a tax accountant either. I just love the following video, which uses a lot of humor to make its point.

    Nice trio, GMa :) I like the last the best, especially the moral of this last story, “It’s tough when dreams collide with reality.” That is the case for us more times than not.
    Your video reminded me of my wanting to be a computer programmer for three years. Well, I got my wish and it lasted four years. That was a year more than good.
    Our younger dughter was an accountant and is doing very well. She is now a ‘head’ over an analyst/planning group. Another kid, our middle son, has an MBA in finance, did what he calls ‘number crunching,’ and has made vice president in the venture capital company where he works.

    Oh my goodness, these are so funny, especially the 2nd and 3rd! It’s tough when one doesn’t have an opposable thumb.

    My computer is indicating that I misspelled “opposable,” but I looked it up in my dictionary and that is the correct spelling. I’m so obsessive about spelling!

    I just finished watching the video and there are tears coming out of my eyes, I laughed so hard!! I’ve got to send this to my bookkeeper friend and my CPA friends!!
