Gee, Even at 18 and 20?

Yesterday my 18 and 20 year old sons had a friendly “fight”. The 20 year old (“N”) wanted to get “D” into a pyramid scheme. D, understanding the math better than his older brother, knew it was a waste of time. But N was very insistent, blocking the door, and being an all-around pest. D was getting fed up with it, and finally laughingly pushed N a few times. (In the end, D was really clever. He promised he would sign up if N did the dishes for a week. He knew that the chances of THAT happening are less than the odds of winning in the pyramid system….)
Gee, D is going into the army in a few weeks, and N has a job. I was under the impression that they were grown up, but they were baiting each other just like they did five years ago.
Do men ever grow up?????

As a parent of two adult "men", they grow up, physically, mentally, but not necessarily emotionally, when it comes to their siblings. LOL.

OY, the joy (and, it truly is)!

Maybe now Ricki can help them with the math part...

Brothers stay brothers forever, let's face it -- with everything that it entails.
