I Am My Father's Son
My father was an ad man, so of course, I hate commercials. There are still too many of them on TV, and the pitchmen come on at volume levels that should be prohibited by law, yelling at you about the same dumb products, over and over and over again.
Every once in a while, though, I find myself looking at the world through the eyes of an advertising man. Recently, as I hugged a curve on my way to work, I clicked on the "Voice Note" app on my iPhone and said the following words, in a loud, confident TV pitchman's voice:
"The guilt-free SUV. The Highlander Hybrid. From Toyota."
