He Said: “If I Could Turn Back Time”

November 16, 2010 by  

Wow…if I had a chance to talk to my wife when she was 16. What would I say? Actually, if I had the chance to turn back the clock and spend even just 15 minutes with her, I’m pretty sure that SO MANY questions I have would just “go away.” Unfortunately, I don’t think she’s expecting my response to be in regards to HER being 16, but for me being 16, so here goes my list:

  • That’s the only little brother you’ll ever have. Or better yet, the only sibling you’ll ever have. And one day, in a few years, he’s gonna try his best to keep you out of trouble, so be nice to him. (Note – he tried to hide an empty beer can but his hands weren’t quick enough. Thanks Jay – it was a heck of an effort for a 14-year-old.)

  • Don’t feel so guilty – everyone else does it – even adults. And yes, girls do it, too. (I know….totally awesome…)

  • “Man up” when you do something wrong. There may be an easier path (that actually turns out OK and no one gets in trouble or hurt) but your decision will remain on your conscience for the rest of your life.

  • Watch how your dad treats your mom. Watch carefully. If you follow in his footsteps, you may end up with someone who is “out of your league.”

  • The 1st time your buddy says he’s going to pick you up but never comes, dump him. It’s going to happen again (and again) and I’d rather you not go through it a second time.

  • It’s not the end of the world when the Steelers lose. It’s just fun to pretend it is, even in your 30’s.

  • Speaking of sports, go outside or hit the gym NOW. Do it while you can, and don’t need 4 days to recover.

  • So what if you’re on the Math Team? Just “be sick” the day they take pictures – no one will know!! (Note #2 – this is a hypothetical response, only if by chance the 16-year-old-me, for some reason, wanted to be on the math team….yeah, that’s it!)

  • You are one lucky dude…no curfew? Seriously? Well don’t abuse it – you have NO CLUE how easy you have it…

    Don’t worry, all the checks have cleared. We’ll make sure the Steelers never lose again. Just like in Miami. And against Seattle in the Super Bowl. We’ve got it under control.
