Since recruiting season ultimately comes down to decisions made by youngsters, I elected to share a few recent examples from my own meandering experience, in order to illuminate the thought processes of those who have not yet reached the age of legal adulthood.
Much as Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar did when including Irene Ryan among their top ten babes, I offer the following as a sorbet to cleanse the palate:
"Edna Mode's not in 'Veggie Tales,'" he replied. "She's not a veggie."
"Mom," he asked my wife, Susan, "has Uncle Craig ever met Spider-Man?"
"I like your grey suit/grey shirt/grey tie combination. It matches the grey in your hair."
Bear that in mind before becoming unduly overwrought over the college choices of teenage boys. Youth remains, as always, wasted on the young.
