Last Spring, I went blonde. I thought that was my midlife crisis.
I, now, believe I misdiagnosed myself. That wasn't a midlife crisis, that was merely my butt being so bored it needed a scratch.
Now, I believe I'm headed down the midlife crisis slide. Thoughts which only entered my brain under humorous circumstances, are now being pondered... seriously.
Things that never appealed to me, or I considered harmful, now sound reasonable and worthy of some research. Scary words float around in my brain along with question marks prompting me to hold my chin as I ponder each and every one of them as a call to action.
Botox- Injecting toxins near one's brain never sounded like a smart idea to me. However, now, as I see the train tracks burrowing deeper and more prominently across my forehead, exchanging a few brain synapses for a placid forehead seems a fair trade.
Lift- I participated in a hula lesson with my bunco gals last month. They said wear your coconut bra. They did. Mine wore more like the water bags the natives use to haul water in the Congo.
Suck- If I'm going to research a lift, I might as well go for the suck. My arm flaps... well, they suck. If I do get a price on a lift, I might as well find out how much a suck goes for, right?
Tuck- And if I'm going to be thorough in my research, and I pride myself on being an excellent researcher, I might as well get a quote on a tuck. Really, I just need a new belly button. I have pregnancy stretch marks come together to make a nice little star at my bully button. I could do without that star.
Transplant- This is the most embarrassing. My hair is falling out! I used to have fantastic thick mane. No more. My teen daughter stole it. I want it back. BAD!
At this moment in time, my list ends here. But, as mentioned, the midlife crisis seems to be a slide... a long slide. I'm fairly certain more's to come.
For now, I feel content to research. Pulling the trigger my come as I continue the ride on this midlife slide.
I'm getting back in the saddle.
