Max is an awesome son. In his role as a TV director, he has access to the intercom system that plays into the earpieces worn by TV reporters.
Several years ago I was standing out in the rain waiting to go on live TV when my son’s voice popped in my earpiece.
“Hey Dad,” Max said. “Do you remember all those times we were driving to school and you would point to guys working out in the bad weather? You always said that was a lesson about staying in school so that I’d get a good job working indoors someday.”
As the rain continued pouring, I waited for his last line.
“Who’s the smart guy now?”
