what you should do is give him some encouragement. Maybe he’s been looking for acknowledgement from you forever and you haven’t really been giving him that. Your stuck up on your high horse and if you feel someone that started after you is slowly progressing further than you, you have to believe they are at blame. Finding sneaky ways on online forums how to get back at him. And then one day you steal his ice cream and you realize you have gone too far. Don’t go down the ice cream stealing way my young friend. Next time he does that just say “Hey I feel ya”. Or say something really strange.
Or since your a youngin you can act like a youngin’. Don’t try to grow up too fast or you’ll be like JM! You don’t wanna grow up to be that. You wanna grow up to be yourself. If you start finding yourself to be similar to JM then stop! And go be silly and have fun.
(you see what I did there?)
