ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

you know, people tune into this podcast thinking they know what we're talking about. But just to clarify, we don't know, ya know, we define an official seenager teenager is someone like who's not young, but not old, kind of like a senior teenager, but not really, you know,

Charlie Ponger:

we're kind of, we're kind of all over the place, right.

Debbie Charlie:

But we did ask our listening audience what they thought a seenager teenager was and it was question that we said, you know, you're a teenager when and the answers are fabulous.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

All right, so I'll do the first one because it's about guys. Okay. So you start out with a forehead and now all of a sudden, you have a five head. I don't get it. So five heads. So if you put four fingers on your forehead, I get it right. That's the forehead. But now that you're getting older, now you got to put another finger under there and you got to five. I would never

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

guess that we lost a good one. That's a really good point, guys. I'm so sorry. Why does the hair recede? So far back,

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

please. What do I know? It's a bicycle so far. I'm okay. In the front. You know,

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

there are very very sexy bald men out there. And some men really do rock the boat and some guys just can't. Can't get into it because they don't want to hit Well hang on to every last hair. Oh, the guy

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

from Amazon shaved his head. He did. Yeah. Who is that? Bezos. Oh, he did. He saved shaved his head. He shaved his head. And he takes some kind of testosterone to do to build himself up. I mean, he was a skinny little twerp. You know why? You could have all that money? I wouldn't want to be that guy. T and all the money that he has. I asked you have you and is tough on the eyes.

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

Have you ever been involved? With me? Have you ever shaved your head and gone ball?

Charlie Ponger:

Oh, I almost did you ready for this? Sure. This is a funny story.

Debbie Charlie:

Okay, because I'm a girl who has been bald twice. Not by choice. Oh, yeah. So I know bald.

Charlie Ponger:

Okay, so this is what happened to me. Now. You're so you're you turn 50 You lose your job. Now all of a sudden, you're like trying to figure it out. You want to you want to look young, the whole thing. So, you know, I've been gray forever. So are white, whatever you call it. So I colored my hair. Okay.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

Because I was so worried about LinkedIn and all that sort of crap. You know, to get back into the system. You never had an eye color and I had my goatee colored and I looked like Carlton your doorman member that Murphy Brown. Yeah, I just couldn't believe it. So now I'm like, Well, what do I do? Because these girls colored my hair for me. And it looks so ridiculous. Who's here? So that she said put put a peroxide in it. So now my hair is yellow. Yeah, well, I shaved the whole friggin thing off.

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

Oh, that's when you shave. Very good. Yeah, the face. Yeah.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

Well, it was it was ridiculous. So that was a one time I and that's a true story.

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

Well, the one thing about being bald is what you can get out of the house fast. Oh, yeah. Oh, man. Girl spends half her life blow drying your hair or worrying about her hair and her hair do and this and that. A bald girl? Man she beat to the dinner table. Really good. The second one teenager when understanding that getting older is the same as growing up. It's not it's not the same? No, because we never growing up. No. But that stupid driver's license keeps messing with us.

Charlie Ponger:

Do you have in the mirror?

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

Ma'am. Yes, ma'am. You want to get beat up now? or later? Ma'am. Do you have some identification? Yeah, I got identification. Look at this. Yeah, sure. Okay.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

How about this one? Used to do cartwheels and now you fall over pulling putting on your on your?

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

Oh my gosh, no Truer words. Right. These are people who have written in who are fellows teenagers who get it and they're laughing when they're laughing with us. Yeah, this whole show is we're laughing at ourselves. It's not making fun of anybody else. Unless you're else and we have to make fun of you. But it's not intentional. It's just we're making fun of ourselves. Because if we don't laugh, there's not gonna be funny, right? Exactly. I almost killed myself the other day trying to put on my own do.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

You did? I almost fell over today. No, my underwear. Just my shorts. Underwear underwear.

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

You don't you know? Oh, gosh. What was that movie? Where the The Karate Kid when he stands on one leg? The Karate Kid? Yeah. Every time I gotta put him anywhere. I'm like, think of the karate. Yeah. What did he do? Focus, focus. Get.

Charlie Ponger:

All right. Your balance gets a little off when you get older. Yeah, one. Yeah. One of the tricks is to brush your teeth with your eyes closed. And then when you brush your teeth, your eyes close. Pick up one leg. Go ahead. Try to do that. Everyone tried to do that for 30 seconds and I try every time

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

let me just say one thing. Good. I do not want to be found with one leg in a pitch with a concussion that killed me smashing into my dresser in my bed. I'm not going out. like that, Charlie, all right, no. Okay. What was it? Excellent. You know, you're a teenager when you used to do cartwheels, and now you fall over putting Oh, you said that one already. But the cartwheels, we should go back to that one.

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

Yeah. What were you able to do cartwheels when you're younger? And was so good? No, let me tell you how good I was. I really envy that.

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

I got a vision right now of what I used to do. My parents back in the day, parents used to have other couples ring the doorbell come to the house, sit in the living room, and wait for them to get ready to go out. Like rarely who does that, but they would send me in as one of the kids entertained those people until they got finished getting dressed, which was like really the rudest sport ever. So I was like, hey, people, look what I learned in dancy school they're like, oh, this little chubby bitch is gonna start doing cartwheels and when I would do a cartwheel over the house, I was doing his dance handstands twirl around I was good

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

nothing upside down for me nothing even to this day anymore. Alright, so the next one is that we are seen as your Wang Go ahead, Charlie. So when when you see an old person and you realize you went to high school together

ebbie Nigro & Charlie Ponger:

that's not a good sign. So old right? They look old you don't look old. So we think now they look old and we do not look like that we don't

harlie Ponger & Debbie Nigro:

because look like you and I are Italian and we have that olive

And I was walking behind him thinking, you know, I was trying to get like EMS just in case. They would respond just in case, no service. And I kept yelling ahead. You know, are you going he's like, no problem. Yeah, okay. Problem. When somebody says no problem, they're lying.

for getting a phone now. It's only it's only because like what if something happens? We don't have a phone. What if somebody's trying to call me I don't have my phone. Dave and I were going out the other night to I don't know where we were going to drive and go. I'm so sorry to this, but I forgot my phone. We have to go back and he doesn't even fit.
