The Age of The Infantile

This is the age when middle aged men act like middle school boys, getting excited about cellphones and sports games and getting drunk as if they were still in college; and the age of women in their late 30’s and 40’s who act like they are in junior high – posing for camera and posting their pictures on Facebook in a desperate attempt to confirm that they are (still) attractive.
