Max: So, I have decided to grow a beard.
Max: And you can’t stop me!
Me: I’m not sure I need to try, at this point.
Max: Well, my wife is not going to stop me either.
Me: Well, you can take that up with your wife. But, right now, you need something else to happen before you can grow a beard.
Me: It’s called ‘puberty’.
Max: What is that?
Me: It’s what happens to boys to turn them into men. Your voice gets lower, you grow hair in certain places….
Max: You mean like my armpits? I already have one hair there.
Me: Well, you’re off to a better start than I thought then
