Over the recent holiday, I conducted a sophisticated study to determine the differences in men of my age group as compared to teenage boys. 

Three grandsons arrived, two from Denver and one from Madison, Wisconsin, as the subjects for my research.

The results may appear in a prestigious academic journal later this year, but I’ll give you a heads-up on the three most crucial findings.

Number 1: Teenage boys are prone to consume great quantities of food late at night. Suggestive notes left on refrigerator doors mean nothing to them. Either they can’t read, or they just aren’t concerned for others who may hanker to share the foodstuffs the next day. Men my age go to bed early.

Number 2: Teenage boys are discreet (maybe shy) in sharing information about girls they are dating. They throw footballs at high velocity at adult inquirers. Men my age make up long stories about adventures with cute girls they slightly knew back in high school.

Number 3: Teenage boys know more about applications available on computers and smartphones owned by elderly men (hot tip: Facebook is only used by old folks).

Final conclusion of research: I love my grandsons. A bunch.
