Youth is Wasted on The Young.

As I get older and see all these kids around, I’m feeling as though I should give advice but keep it to myself.

I don’t have kids of my own, but have plenty of nieces and nephews.  Kids when they hit their teenage years and or puberty suddenly develop something new and different.  I remember a Bill Cosby routine about being home sick from school and at 3:30 a little angel suddenly made him well.  Kids when they hit teenage years suddenly are hit by that same angel.  They now know everything.  The adults are morons.

There’s no use trying to tell your teenager anything.  George Will calls non Baseball season The Void?  Teenage years are the void for adults.  All we can do, is sit back and smile.

Suddenly at twenty-one, the adults become smart again.  Funny how that happens.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
