    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    How true. They make an ass of themselves, and leave a swath of hurt people behind them.

    Maister, in my experience, you're a few years tardy to a mid-life crisis. Go for the red sports car.

    Maybe I jumped the gun already on the midlife crisis thing. I own a two seater sports car and am marrying a woman 9+ years my junior. I'm only 35. To me it's all mindset and I still feel like I'm 25. The only difference is now I'm better dressed and better with money!

    I would say that men having mid-life crisises are pretty predictable. Women having mid-life crises are often dangerous and psychotic.
    Children in the back seat can cause accidents - and vice versa.

    Does spending your money to attend the APA National Conference count ?

    Depends. Are you gonna get crazy like in Cedar Rapids? If not, then no.

    As soon as I figured out that my irrational behavior was part of my mid-life crisis I put a stop to it. I was ready to take the kids and leave my husband. He, on the other hand, rode the wave of his mid-life crisis, and the results are the same. So, did I make a wise decision? I'll never know.

    People assumed that I was having a midlife crisis when I got divorced and ended up marrying a younger woman. The truth of the matter was that my ex was having the crisis and I got an upgrade out of it.. Thirty plus years later, I'm still happily married and the ex is a double-ex and bitter woman with a second failed marriage.

    My mid-life crisis manifested itself in a few ways:

    Career: I was feeling very down and out about growth prospects in my previous career and so made the difficult decision to return to school and get a Masters in Planning. What an idiot! Just kidding, I like where it has taken me. But that student loan debt – oy!

    Physical: While my interest in attractive women has not waned (at least as far as admiration), as a married man in his 40s, I am well aware that I don’t even show up on the radar as potentially desirable for most ladies, so I got over that one pretty quickly. I did, however, get concerned about my health and the shlubbiness that had parked itself around my middle. I will admit that a good deal of my motivation was to look attractive to my partner. Oh yeah, and my health. I kept thinking about Kevin Spacey’s character in American Beauty (speaking of mid-life crises) who approaches the gay couple in his neighborhood for workout pointers. They ask him what he wants to work on and he answers “I just want to look good naked!” So, that…

    My wife is in the throes now, so its my turn to be supportive. Good times ahead!
