After many years of hard work， Joe rewarded himself with a long， luxurious stay at an exclusive Carribean resort. While relaxing on the beach， he was surprised to see a former high school classmate who he hadn't seen since they graduated. His old friend had been something of a “burnout” in high school， and this was the last place Joe expected to see him.
Joe approached the man， and seized his hand. “Pete， it's Joe. From high school. It's sure been a long time. You look great！ You must really be doing okay for yourself.”
“I am，” whispered Pete. “I am a partner with a very successful law firm. But don't tell mother. She got the idea that I was a drug dealer back when I was in high school， and she would be terribly disappointed if she figured out how I really make my money.”
