knibber: a male deer when the antlers first appear
Did you always want to do what you're doing now? Did you know, growing up, that you always wanted to do [whatever it is you do now]? When I was little, I wanted to be an NFL quarterback for a while, or maybe play violin professionally in an orchestra.
