    No offense to Scott Stricklin but mine would be Athletic Director at UF. What would yours be?

    Might need to change your ad campaign, not sure that faster service is what they are looking for.

    I love my job. Mine would be more like dream salary LOL.

    I’ve always been interested in teaching 300 or 400 level history at UF. That would be pretty fun because no one is there by mistake or to fulfill a credit, they actually want to talk and write history.

    To me a "dream job" has to mean something you would love to do...if you knew you could make a really living out of it (or I guess in the case of the UF AD, you don't have to go through all the necessary crap to get to your goal). Otherwise, why is it your dream and not your goal?

    So with this in mind, I guess I would lean to being a teacher with some caveats: I don't want to be limited by a bureaucracy or subject matter. Doing physics repeatedly would be tedious. Seeing minds open up to possibilities is always a neat experience. Teaching...the act and not the profession...is quite endearing. The rest of it is just plain awful.

    And there is always the fallback "dream job": master of all time and space. Being "Da Man", without a chance for some upstart trying to knock you off, I think fits most people's idea of a dream.

    Football coach. Didn’t pursue it because I wanted a family more and I don’t regret the decision.

    When I was a college wrestler, i wanted to be a college wrestling coach. Funny the directions that life takes you. I never thought I'd land in Gainesville. I had barely heard of Gainesville. And the rest as they say is history. I wouldn't change a thing.

    While growing up in Gainesville wondered if I would ever leave. Then married, moved away for 30 years before returning. Now girl gone again. Never thought.

    Returning to the thread title, I have two dream jobs. Lead singer in a big Rock & Roll band, or a winning NASCAR Driver.
