It occurs to me that I might be going through a wee tad of a mid-life crisis. I'm not doing anything too crazy yet; it's just the general realization that my life is half over and I wasted a lot of time of that first half bumming around thinking I had plenty of time. And even though lately I think I'm slowly dialing life in, (oh, watch out, I'm gonna get cocky! (not really, I think that's part of the crisis)) I do feel like I need to catch up.
So my question is… where do I go from here? How do I really maximize my mid-life crisis? Should I get a tattoo? Take an extended vacation to "find myself"? I like the classics but I'd also like some originality. You know that whole bit where you get the convertible and the bright young thing? I don't really get that part. Because, to be honest, I tried it and when we were driving around – totally snarling my hair, by the way – she kept asking when she was going to get her boob job. And I was like, "Hello? I bought the convertible. YOU'RE buying ME a boob job!" And she was all, "OMG! I did not get a degree in Marketing to buy my own boobs! What kind of bright young thing do you think I am?! You know what? Just get me a new bag before I get upset." And I was all, "Ugh! Demanding much?!" But I did get her a new bag because I figured it was cheaper than surgery. Then I had to explain it all to my husband and it just got really confusing.
So that road is out. Maybe a Vespa?
