    In my head I'm a undefeated UFC light weight champion (155 lbs).  In real life I'm a 190 pound manager of a retail establishment in the midwest.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    I believe there was a similar thread a while back, but here we go again. Another Registered Nurse, from back in the day when a 'Male Nurse' was unusual. Went on to become a Perfusionist (ran the heart lung machine during open heart surgery) and an CRNFA (surgical assistant during heart surgery). Now in a management position with a multi specialty medical company. My dream is to retire and become a member of Operation BBQ Relief.
