You want to know the difference in mindset between a 12 year old boy and a 35 year old man?
My brother was flipping around on the TV to find something to watch. He stops on the Food Network so we could watch a show about desserts. The second he sees the host he sits straight up and happily says, "ALL RIGHT, Giada!" The 12 year old sits straight up and happily says, "ALL RIGHT, CHOCOLATE CAKE!"
That's the difference. :-)
