The Generation Gap

I'm playing basketball with a boy probably in his early teens.

Me (leading 14-6): Ok, I won't go in for any more lay-overs.
Kid looks at me quizzically.
Me (realising my mistake): I mean, I won't go in for any more lay-ups.

Me: When you go in for the lay-up, drive aggressively so you can draw the foul.
Kid: That's called 'earning a foul', right?

Me: What's the matter? Don't you drink Glucon-D? You're flopping all over the court.
Kid: No, I drink Gatorade.

Kid: How old are you?
Me: 26.
Kid: Whoa!
Me: Yeah, I know, I look a lot younger than I am.
Kid: No, if you were under 18, then you could have grown some more.

I'm 6'6".
