Practice this paragraph. A truck driver wanted to try a different route one day, so he took a short cut and went over some train tracks. Because he knew this could get him in trouble at work, he decided he would try to trick his boss and lie to him. If his boss didn’t know the truth, then he figured he couldn’t get into trouble. Just as he passed the train tracks, however, the truck driver lost control of his truck and hit a tree. His reckless behavior would not only cause trouble for him at work, but also with his son. His son was a truck driver, too and had always followed in his father’s footsteps. He hoped this incident would not ruin his relationship with his son.
Idiom: follow in someone’s footsteps Definition: to be like someone one admire, to take after someone
