Career Day

I once again did career day for the local elementary school.  160 kids came through in 12 groups and every one of them patted Emma.  She is such a good dog.  In between groups she would patiently wait in her carrier.  She never once barked, whined or made a noise of any sort.  I performed 12 physical exams on her so she would just about open her mouth and say ahh if I asked by the end of the day.
I'm not sure why the guidance councilors continually ask us to career day (other than the fact that the children are easily entertained by a dog and we show up).  They only had 2 other careers represented today, police and VDOT.  It seems they might actually have representatives from some more likely career paths.  There are only 84000 vets total in the US.  That includes private and public/corporate.   960,000 claim farming as their principal occupation.   How many are in your professions?
