    has my midlife crisis started?

    driving along in the car today, i found myself, out of the blue, saying to bemused wife and blissfully unaware sprogs - "you know what, i fancy buying a lambretta"

    "you're having a mid life crisis" she replied

    Is she correct

    Re: has my midlife crisis started?

    nope. I saw them back in 94 or 95, and wasn't impressed. thus; not a part of my youth that would be prioritised for 'recapturing' .

    but in case i am; i've no time to reinvent the wheel, so if anyone else can advise me on stupid things to do or buy, based on their own crises, it would be much appreciated, and labour savin'

    Well, your frame of mind has just caught up with your teenage fashion sense.

    Re: has my midlife crisis started?

    I read recently that post-40s guys are the most miserable feckers on the planet. I'll try and find the article.

    Fancied a Gretsch semi-acoustic for my mid-life crisis but I can't afford it and my son would fill it with porridge given half a chance.

    Pah, that's nothing. I was stopped at the lights the other day and there was a Porsche 911 on each side of me. One was a very new, the other a much older model. Both very smart motors and I caught myself thinking "Hmm, I quite fancy having one of them, I wonder how much that would cost."

    No, as you already have a car all you are doing is looking at a better model, no mid life crisis.

    OTOH had you decided to learn to ride a motor bike (or hadn't ridden one in a good number of years ie since you passed your test) and then went for a Harley or some such iconclastic (is that actually a word ) machine then you'd be having a mid life crisis

    I recently read somewhere about an increase in the number of middle aged men getting into motor cycle accidents due to them buying higher end machines either due to the mid life crisis or was it just that they could afford the bikes, I can't remember.

    However, in terms of relationships that attitude is often a sign of mid-life crisis.

    I remember an article last year in the British Press, would probably have been after the summer accident figures were published that said the same thing. I think it was a mixture of both that was the root cause of the problem

    Depends, I want a nice wee sports car, MG or MX5 would do nicely thanks Santa , but this is only because No1 child is 20 and at uni and No2 is 16, therefore no need to cart round sprogletts and enough logistics to provide for an assault on Moscow .


    I certainly don't think I'm having a mid life crisis....



























    Then again

    I had one when i was younger (and 2 Vespas) and had been thinking about getting one for going to work. I'm not going to bother now in case i'm going through a mid-life crisis.

    Actually, i think i am going through it. I went to Morrisons at the Gyle for messages a fortnight ago. Came back with a feckin Armani watch. What's that all about?

    is it a midlife crisis when you get a strong urge to start dressing in womens clothes and wearing make up?

    Been think of getting a Vespa, I am still young enough for it to look cool though.
    Do you feel like a rock star? : I do actually.

    What is that term? : Passion at everything - when you're making that tea, make sure it's the best cup of tea ever. Everything's got to be the nuts.
