On Pern I would have done something with animals. If not dragons than horses. I would have wanted to live whare it is warm, near the ocean. Before the re-discovery of the dolphins, I would have probably worked in abeast hold. After dolphins, then I would have done ANYTHING to work with them.
I wish I knew more about dolphins than I do.

Can't rely on the dragon all the time... Dragon would have to be awake, and listening. And maw, to hear you in a normal conversation, without my hearing aids, we'd have to be almost intimately close, with your nose practically in my left ear. Understand? At that, you'd either have to have a very clear voice or I'd have to know it well enough to get the gist of of what you were saying.
Try doing that in a crowd. It becomes about 10 times harder. I don't even like to talk at meals because even with my aid on it's hard to follow conversations.
