Asked Friday afternoon in Caras Park

Alex Freedman: I worked on a movie set in L.A., in Venice, as an intern. It was a low-budget B-movie. We had gross special effects. Angus Scrimm was even in it. Funny with a filter: I'd probably be a stand-up comedian. A clean one, because they're so rare.

Giacomo Ranieri: The first one that comes to mind was hardwood floors in Bozeman, Belgrade, that area. We were working on a lot of high-end houses. Straight to scribe: I would have gotten into something that involves writing earlier. I've been working in kitchens here for years and I got a degree in creative writing.

Alita Arendell: I spent 11 years as a mining expeditor in Alaska. I would take orders for a number of mining companies ... I even got to go down in the mines. Backcountry life: I worked on a backcountry ranch in Idaho. We were in the Frank Church Wilderness, so our food was all flown in. We lived there year-round.

Gabor Boczonadi: I grew up in Budapest, Hungary, and I had to go help work on cell phone towers. We drove out to the countryside and they were like, "You're going to climb up to the top." Dreamy but content: I'd be a forest ranger or a smokejumper. But I'm pretty happy with my life now. I do freelance event marketing, get to travel a lot.

Michelle Boczonadi: I washed windows at a corporate building in college. I used a 30-foot extendable pole. Adventure for hire: I'd be a personal travel planner. I do that for myself. To get paid for it would be helpful.
