A doctor was sitting in the living room of his home reading the paper one weekend day when his four-year-old son walked in. The man had left a few of his instruments on the couch. The child picked up his stethoscope and was examining it.
The man put down the paper and watched his son with much interest. "Look at that!" he thought to himself. "He wants to follow in my footsteps!"
The child put the stethoscope around his neck. "Look at that little doctor!" the man thought, beaming with pride and thinking whatever a child pretends to be, that's what he'll often grow up to be.
The child held the device to his mouth and spoke into it. "Welcome to McDonald's," he announced. "May I take your order?"
