job hunting (in our household)

there discussing what job i should do
said ' i'd be a delivery driver'
dad 'that would mither you'
mum 'oh really' in a panic state
'lee why not become a plumbers mate'
said 'i know a lot of plumbers
don't think i'd be great'
dad piped up 'become a brain surgeon'
said ' i'd rather be pacific sturgeon'
that thus ended the debate
