Someone asked me the other day if I was having a mid-life crisis. This question took me by surprise. For one, if this is mid-life for me then I will live to be 106. Let's look at the evidence: I wear an earring. Doesn't count because I have been wearing it since 1983. I've had 2 nose jobs. Doesn't count because I didn't like my original nose since I was in my 20's. I dress "age inappropriate" (jeans from the Buckle and Aeropostale shirts). Doesn't count because I've been dressing that way forever. It's not like at some point in my adult life I started wearing suits and then regressed. I have a girlfriend who is much younger than me. Doesn't count because I wasn't looking for a much younger girlfriend, it just happened that way. And finally, the real proof that I'm not having a mid-live crisis: I drive a 2004 Toyota Echo with 141,000 miles on it, no electric seat, no electric windows, no gps, no keyless entry, no cruise control...hell it doesn't even have intermittent wipers!!!! Mid-life crisis? Not yet.
