"Why does Dad have to such a spectacle of himself? Jenny said to her mom as they waited for the 4th of July parade to start. 
"Because it is the only day of the year he gets to feel tall. And besides the parade can’t start without him”
We sit curbside with all the other families. Fidgety children running out into the street. 
Suddenly my dad appears from around the corner. The crowd starts cheering as Uncle Sam walks by leading the parade on ten foot stilts. 
My dad smiling and waving as he does every year. I smile back.
