After 11 years, CBC’s radio show WireTap is saying a sweet farewell to its listeners. The show asked Canadians to reveal what wisdom they would share with someone younger than them. The advice is heartfelt, laugh-out-loud funny and actually useful.
“Dear 7-year-old, No matter what anyone says, stay weird. Signed, An 8-year-old” (in a Viking helmet)
This next one rang true for us: “Dear 12-year-old, Ask her to dance—just trust me on this one. Signed, A 16-year-old”
And proving that you’re never too old to be on the receiving end of an important life lesson, many adults also shared their best advice:
“Dear 51-year-old, One cat is enough cats. Signed, A 53-year-old”
Make sure to watch until the end to find out why you need friends who are younger than you. Plus, there are hilarious bloopers and a heartfelt letter from WireTap.
