Michael Smith at Richard Telles

"That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age"
reflects well the implicit anxiety of men and youth. Both predatory and pathetic.  Their "midlife crisis" or eyed with questions at playgrounds, office hours with required open doors. Then there's the "avuncular" Smith, like the guy failing to fill his quotas at the dealership. His softness a comedy. The aging man, while the youth remain.
