I read with amusement that day when a local newspaper did an editorial on the human behavior of people suffering from mid life crisis.
Now, this social phenomena can impact homo sapiens from 40 up to 60 years of age. Hmm…. wouldn’t that mean the Roaring Fortiers fall into the early stages of this band ….. YIKES!
From what I gather, you can actually formulate a checklist of sorts for symptoms of this ‘it-which-cannot-be-named’ mental ailment ……… Now, if you’re between 40 – 60 years old & you answer YES to one or more of the questions below, …. it signals the onset of … umm…, for lack of a better word, the ‘crisis’ ….. Don’t cheat ok? 🙂
Hmm, its a YES for me on the brushing & flossing (that’s 1), checking for white hair (2), taking supplements (3), umm ….. & the bungee jump thing (4) did come across my mind but my back disagrees … Wow, 4/6 (two thirds majority, in election jargon) …… Does that mean I ‘pass’ with flying colours? … Oops – That’s not exactly good, is it?!
You might agree or disagree with the list – but … I’m seriously wondering, how did you fare??? Don’t be shy, tell me – TELL ME!!! Ahahahaha ….. let me be the first to start the ball rolling, I, moi, …… am supposed to be suffering a MID LIFE CRISIS!
WOO HOO!!!!!!! Bring on the bungee jumps!!!!!!!!!
