If I were a Cosmologist

My three favorite shows on TV these days are The West Wing, NOVA and Inside the Actor’s Studio.

There’s a set of questions that James Lipton, host of Inside the Actor’s Studio, asks of all of his guests. “What’s your favorite curse word?” is probably the most famous.

The two questions I like the most are, “What career would you most like to try other than acting?” and, “What career would you most like not to attempt?”

When I was younger, I would have answered “Cosmologist” to the first question, and “President of the United States” to the second.

These days, I’m still pretty sure about the first answer, but not so sure about the second.
