Time for another Top 5 Wednesday!
This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic:
Fictional Jobs You’d Want to Have
Muggle Studies Teacher (Harry Potter)
I’ve always though this would be a fun job, but only if done properly. Instead of just teaching the wizard-born kids about muggles, you need to also teach the muggle-born about the wizarding world! Get the kids involved! Have them all give presentations on things they think the other kids should learn about. Pair them up and have them write essays about how wizards and muggles would accomplish the same tasks. Have them swap their favorite novels and candies. Get them together for mock gobstones and soccer tournaments. And, of course, “Movie Fridays”. 😉
Owner of Small Bookstore (The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend)
Ok, so this one is a real job, but I LOVE the idea of it, even if for me it would probably never pan out. See, I don’t want to just own a small bookstore. I want to own a small bookstore in a small town. Something cozy, where people can escape the real world for a while and hunker down with a good book. Comfy chairs, warm atmosphere. Sounds like heaven. 🙂
Magizoologist (Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them)
Harry Potter Take 2, but this time with animals. I would LOVE to explore the world and find new exotic animals…but only if I can do magic to help me study them and keep the bugs away. 😉
Owner of Small Teashop (Death by Darjeeling)
Also a real job, but still a little out of reach for me. A quaint little teashop (yes, in a small town) where people could pop in for a warm cuppa and a cookie. We could host little events, like book clubs or small luncheons. Mix up our own concoctions and have “Fun Tea Friday” at half price for anyone adventurous enough to give it a go. There’d be a book nook, of course, where you could snuggle down with your drink and a happy novel. Also heaven. 🙂
Gardening Detective (Rosemary & Thyme)
Ok, this one is kind of just for fun. But can you imagine, playing detective while being surrounded by so much beauty? A smidgen of danger, just enough to make things interesting, but not so much that you are constantly anxious. An interesting mystery, but not too difficult to figure out. And gorgeous scenery, even if you have to make it yourself. Sounds like a blast!
So you’ve seen mine, now tell me…what would YOUR fictional dream job be?
