Is option C. Reconstructive surgery or boy-toy? Actually, he looks like he'd be useful come spring- cleaning, walking crap out of the basement. Those bulkhead steps aren't getting any more convenient.

After C is done cleaning out duncan's basement he can come and build me a new deck.

(that sentence sounds like it could become an awful euphemism! especially since I want a long, wooden deck!)

F. Not a fan of plastic surgery but I'll transform myself into Captain America if I have the chance.

Looking over the pictures, I've changed my mind and decided that I'll do them all. In other words, I'll pool a generous amount of semi-illegal chemicals and have a genetically-altered siamese hemaphrodite stand in it while I drop a house on them and have Herbert and Ethel clean up the mess while I run over them in my 1969 Whateverthehellitis.

i know it's an early 70's mustang. I had a later model one, so there.

So, does that mean that transforming into Captain America is open again?
I call dibs if that's the case.

I think I should start selling mid life crisis packages.

Welcome to Makati City Mr. Furious. I'll be providing you with cutting edge bio similar hormone treatments and monitoring your blood levels in conjunction with endocrinologists from the University of Santo Tomas. Gunther will be your personal trainer. Your condo is ready to your specifications. Here is your cell phone. Look through your preloaded contacts at your discretion. You will find a guide to the local night life on your laptop in the folder labelled Nightclubs. Wing man service is included with the service. Might I suggest the Fallujah story Sir. It's especially heroic.

In regards to your home situation the story of the experimental cancer treatments went over without a hitch. I know the teleconference from St. Lukes seemed like overkill but we find the added drama of the simulated cardiac event on camera very effective. You should have an absolutely wonderful eight months. Once again welcome to the Philippines.

Truly realizing ones fragility, mortality and fading relevance can come at almost any age. It drives many people quite crazy. It can be a sad spectacle, but it is usually entertaining regardless.

I voted B. I wouldn't have sex with her, but we could always use an extra sitter.

Don't know if I would want her as a babysitter. Might call her parents and ask if she has self respect problems.

For my mid-life crisis, I'd probably become sane. For a while anyway.

ETA: And maybe find some inner peace while I'm at it too. With a few options on that list as well.
