Continuing a theme

The midlife crisis theme started there. I will continue it here, sort of.

While driving home from Herbie today, we ran into a little rain. A man with an "interesting" hairline had to pull over to put the top up on his Lebaron. The girls just didn't appreciate it when I said, "Stinks getting caught in the rain with the top down on your midlife crisis."

Meanwhile, Herbie was a hoot. When it comes to seeing movies with my daughters, my standards are low. If I'm even mildly entertained, and not offended, I'm happy. But what brings me the greatest joy going to the movies with the girls is sitting between them and sneaking glances as their faces light up with joy. How I wish I could bring my camera in to capture that look on their faces (but somehow I think when they say no cell phones, pagers or laser pointers, it's probably implied: No flashes from cameras either!)

There is a bald gentleman at work who swears that he will never drive a convertible out of fear of exactly that, that folks will immediately tag him as "mid life crisis guy."

I never actually said I'm having a mid life crisis mind you -- I'm saving that card to be played later. I love my iPod but you can only play the "crisis" card once so I'm saving it up for a bike trip to Italy when I turn 50 (which still gives me just over a decade to actually get in shape).

Now I didn't accuse anyone (except neighbor and convertible-driving guy) of having a midlife crisis ... but bobo, you are the one who got mid-life crisis stuck in my head!
