14 & 41

Today I am 41. In a couple weeks Tyler will be 14. The chronological juxtaposition presents a number of interesting contrasts:

14: Lots of zit cream
41: Lots of neck cream

14: "That's what she said."
41: "Because I said so."

14: Ungodly hours spent on Facebook (chatting, posting, quiz-taking)
41: Ungodly hours spent on face (tweezing, smoothing, concealing)

14: 5,000 calories a day
41: 5,000 calories a month

14: Xbox
41: Botox

14: Irritable
41: Irritable Bowel Syndrome

14: Bieber hair
41: Bieber who?

14: Blows off homework to hang out with friends
41: Blows off friends because someone never does their homework

14: Crosses the line
41: Holds the line

14: Frequent sufferer of consequences
41: Frequent sufferer of heartburn

14: Girls: The Be All & End All
41: Girls: The Devil Incarnate

14: Tolerates and is tolerated
41: Tolerates and is tolerated

Whattaya know... something in common after all.
