Sorry but I need to ask before we go on, does this involve any of:
a manbun, pony tail and/or receding hairline
the use of slang (do you say hombre?)
accessories that begin with man (eg manbag)
talk about the women you’ve scored with
a sports car
Was just reading this thread again…
You’re describing a typical mid-life crisis set of symptoms lol. Missed that initially.
Makes me think of a pudgy bald old dude wearing a bandana with a 70’s band name in 2" letters, in a tiny bright red convertible, dressed in something from his son’s wardrobe.
That where u were going with that?
I’m a bit dense about some things, but even I know what tasteful attire is and what looks just plumb ridiculous. My splurge on a vehicle, if I were going to, would be a Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LTZ…and the most graphic display of anything for me is a flag t-shirt or the like.
But no, wasn’t taking about the sort of silliness we’ve all seen from geriatrics with too much money trying to appear young even though under those ripped jeans they’re wearing a depends, and one romp with a hot chick would give them a massive coronary.
I’m just “regular” in those sorts of areas.
This started when my wife commented about us being middle-aged and me taking a joke too far about how I intend to live to 101, so I’ll not be middle-aged till I’m 50.
Of course I know by definition it starts at 32 or so, but it struck me that she really believes we should fit into a category about which I personally could care less, cause it’s defined by a number. Because I’m 47 I shouldn’t try to lift as much as possible in the gym cause I might get hurt?
Ithink most people just have a filter that’s thicker than mine and don’t argue when someone tries to get them to conform to an arbitrary societal standard. I’d prefer to set or improve a standard, but that’s getting into subjectivity that’s beyond the scope of the OP point.
Peace ya all
