Professor Bonnie

I took one of those silly quizzes that my friends were taking on Facebook.  It's called What Career Should You Actually Have?  The ten questions are pretty ridiculous, but I muddled through them, choosing something each time.  The quiz rumbled and shuddered (I may be slightly exaggerating) before popping out the answer.  Now you know the career I *SHOULD* have had before retirement.  Wait!  I really DID this.

"You are a thinker, in constant search of knowledge and answers to life’s most illusive questions. You love to analyze everything, testing out theories and pushing mental boundaries. Basically you’re an Einstein, but then again you probably already knew that."
Analysis (it's what I do)

Spell check is challenging the word "illusive" as possibly misspelled, so let's define these words:
illusive ~ adj. (literary) ~ deceptive; illusory; misleading; unreal.

elusive ~ adj. ~ eluding clear perception or complete mental grasp; hard to express or define; puzzling, baffling.
Elementary, my dear Watson!  The maker of the quiz quite likely used the wrong word.  Indeed, she or he should have referred to "life's most elusive questions."  Analysis complete.

If you want to take the same quiz, click here.  Maybe it will also tell you what you already know.

By the way, can you name the "professor" in that photo above?  That's Professor Minerva McGonagall of Hogwarts.

At least yours was accurate. It says I am to be an astronaut! Um... not going to happen. Luckily the alternative choice was a teacher, which is spot on!

What do we have here? My quiltmaker friend gets "designer," and my teacher friend gets "astronaut"? But your alternate was teacher. And I, as preacher who taught college classes as an adjunct, got "professor." Even my preaching, however, was always teaching. It's who I am.
