Happy Father's Day, Sammy

"Have you ever thought about how people look like they become later in life?" Sam said out of nowhere.

"What? What was that you said?" I asked right before my scrabbled eggs arrived.

"I've been thinking about the way people looked when they were younger you know?"

"Like who?"

"Well ... like you, Joel. I never thought you looked like an executive."

"I didn't? What did I look like?"

"I dunno ... like a guy having fun ... not serious ... not sure what you looked like."

I pointed to Josh sitting next to me. "How about Josh?"

"Oh ... he looks like an office man."

"And Debbie?"

"Professional ... very professional."

Debbie gave a great big smile to show off her braces. "Well Sammy," she said, "How about you? What do you like?"

Sammy stopped and thought long and hard. "I am ... a man of the people!"


What did he mean I don't look like an executive?
