Fire Hats, Skin Coloration, and Growing Up

We took the boys to Firehouse subs one night this week when Eli made an interesting discovery.  As one of the workers gave them fire hats, he looked up at the picture above the door (see above) and wanted to inform me of something peculiar.

“Daddy, look.  Those boys look like Obie and Eli.”

“Really?  Huh, they kinda do.  Why do you think they look like you?”

“Ummm…They both are wearing fire hats.”

I wish I could make this stuff up.
