The other day I was chatting with my sister and she said “Boys only get their brains after 30.”
A few days later at work, I came across this quotation:
“...a second major phase of brain growth that parallels the hormonal changes at puberty and extends into the mid-twenties. This second spurt is especially prominent in the frontal lobes, an area associated with planning, reasoning, and impulse control. Until this occurs, adolescents are not yet capable of exercising these processes consistently. “
So she was literally correct about boys not getting their brains until they are 30. Of course, the same would hold true for girls… I now plan to use this excuse for any stupid decision I have made up until now in my life. If I’d known this, I would have listed “my frontal lobes weren’t fully developed and thus my planning, reasoning and impulse control was not operational when I got married” on my divorce papers. I think it would hold up in court.
So, based on this scientific evidence, I’m now supposed to include “anyone under 30” on my list of “qualities which, if you possess them, will preclude my dating you” list. This list, which is growing rapidly, now includes1:
- anyone named Dave (my ex) or Chris (my sister’s ex)
- the British
- boys who still live with their moms
- Surrey trash
- pretty boys
- anyone under the age of 30
I have a rather hard time with those last two though.
So, does anyone know any ugly old guys that I can date?
1but is not limited to. I swear there were way more things on this list when I was talking to my sister, but I can’t remember what they were now.
