Most children have strong ideas about what they want to be when they grow up.
This youngster, on the other hand, is clear about what he should be doing with his life right now. While most mothers urge their children to aim high — “You can be anything if you put your mind to it!” — one mother had to give her son a funny reality check.
Meet Jess. He’s just your average little boy… who wants to be governor of New Jersey.
Currently, the youngest governor in the United States is 38 years old, and Chris Christie (governor of New Jersey) is 55. Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, Jess isn’t even close to hitting double digits!
So Mom, and evidently, numerous other people broke the bad news to Jess.
“Everyone tells me I’m too little to be the governor of New Jersey,” he said.
His brother is asked to do an imitation of famed California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in order to divert him from this painful reality. Jess, on the other hand, is still too depressed to care.
His parents try to encourage him. He doesn’t have to be the governor of New Jersey right now! He can do it when he grows up, and after he completes college.
That’s when the tyke drops a hilarious bombshell: “I’m already in college!”
He tearfully and sincerely insisted that he had all the education he needed to be governor. However, he might want to take a bit more time to get to know how to please his future constituents.
Watch what he says when his mom quizzes him about his campaign platform.
Don’t worry, Jess! Your passion and sincerity will no doubt one day reach the people of New Jersey. Don’t forget to share this little boy’s adorable hopes and dreams with your friends today.
