Just Like DadMature

Long, black clown shoes were on my feet
Long, black dress pants were almost falling off
I looked at myself in the mirror
As I buttoned up the blue dress shirt
I picked up the tie from off of the dresser
How in the world...
I just made it into a loop and tied it
Happy when it worked
Slipping it over my head, I squinted at my reflection
I grabbed my sunglasses (the ones with the popped-out lenses) and pulled them on
My plastic keys clicked around in my pocket as I grabbed the cardless PDA
One more thing!
I grabbed a pillow and stuffed it as my torso, then tucked in my shirt
Daddy always was a muscular man!
With a spritz of cologne, I was ready for a day at the office.  Just like dad.

The End
