I never remember having anything that resembled a "career day" when I was 8. To be honest, I don't think I even heard the term until I was in college.
And that may be why our children will be better than us. Our kids have career days. And they dress snappy when they have to. Take our young man here, Eli Kakouris. He was more than happy to break out the coat and tie.
So...what's it gonna be? Electrical engineer? Physicist? Bicycle store manager? Er...scratch that last one. That's why we have career days, son.
