So I’ll live to be…..82?

October 4, 2011


I’ve been trying to think of something to post about off-and-on all evening, but in truth I’m actually just waiting for 9 o’clock so I can go to bed.

I believe I’ve been feeling a mid-life crisis coming on. No need to buy any extravagant item (that’s usually guys, right?) – just a vague sense of dissatisfaction.

Then I realize how indulgent that sounds.

Then I realize that I’m really too lazy to have a crisis.

Then I notice that it’s 8:50. Good enough.

(No photo today – I don’t know how to take a picture of my midlife. Midriff, yes, but no one wants to see that.)

    So what are the symptoms? Is this something you can diagnose using the Web MD Symptom Checker? Is it contagious?

    I think it’s time for you to buy a top hat. I hear that dressing weird is the current accepted response Midlife Crisis.


  3. Lloyd Said on:

    I thought Lauren said “midwife crisis” and that just confused me.

    Gretchen, I believe some of the symptoms might be that your husband can’t read, and your friends are encouraging you to buy clothing not sold at Target.

    I think you need a cat.

    I’ve been having trouble with the blahs lately too. Especially the other day when I noticed how much deeper the giant crease in between my eyebrows has gotten. I pretty sure I could hide a snack & a glass of milk in there. 🙁

    82? I thought we decided at 35 that we were half way done?

    I just noticed we can rate your post. I had accidentally run my cursor and it temporarily shows a rating. I thought I had given you a very poor rating.

    (when I typed curser, why did spell check only give me other words as options? I was only off one letter. Stupid spell check.)
