my seven-year old's future job description

My seven-year old son wanted to float a few future career choices by me this week.

Him: Dad?

Me: Yeah?

Him: What do you think about me fighting in the army someday?

Me: Well... I know a lot of people who have done that. The Army helps our country stay safe.

Him: Yeah, I'm thinking about fighting in it.

Me: There certainly are times when we need to fight to protect something, but I'm not a big fan of fighting to just fight. I hope if you do join the Army someday that you do it to protect others and not to just fight.

Him: Yeah. Well, either that, or I'm thinking about working at Amazone.

Me: The laser tag place?

Him: Yeah.

Me: That's a good choice, too.
