A pick up truck and a bald chick.....

So, I'm driving along the road with my 14 year old son and he tells me that Dad wants to get a vette...a corvette. So for an instance I panick......a vette? Only men who are going through some kind of mid life crisis in their mid 40's (which he is 48) get vettes right? My Fathers mid life crisis not only included a vintage convertible mustang but another girlfriend to boot....YIKES!!!!


So when my Son and I meet up with Jim I casually ask if he is thinking about getting a corvette, and then explain where I got that idea from (lil Jimmy) and he starts to laugh at me..so I ask, "Is this some kind of midlife crisis or something? What? Are you gonna want a girlfriend with hair now too??"


He takes a minute before answering me....I am secretly holding my breath....
He says, " No, all I ever wanted was a pick up truck and a bald chick and I've got that already!!!!" lol lol lol


I find out later it's my Son who wants his Dad to get a vette! Oy Veh!


All is right in my world again!!!

Hi Kim,

You're so funny!  You had me laughing out loud with the past couple of entries.  I'm so happy to see you went out and had a good time, and that you were up to that!  My hubby had a vette for several years.  It was NOT easy to carry two children in and get groceries! (ha)  I also had a van, and a couple of times when I went to the store I forgot I'd taken the car....bought too many groceries, and had to come back for the rest! (ha)

Take Care,
~Bilinda~

Kids!  LOL!  And even if he did want a vette, it's possible it's completely innocent.  After all, you went pole dancing and that was innocent!  LOL!  Life is so funny and fun.

LOL  Too funny!  My BIL (48) went out and bought a red vette supposedly for my sister but it really is for him though he will never admit it.  She wanted a Mustang but didn't have the heart to tell him.  They hardly drive it.  He has a new pick-up and she has a new SUV.  Shoot, I'll take the vette!
Hugs,
Dana

Kim, I knew I liked your husband...he knows the right answers.  I'm almost sixty and I'm still wondering about the mid-life crisis.  Of course I married a wonderful woman 10 years younger than I am.  She keeps me young.
I'm glad you are out and about and feeling better.
Keep smiling,
David
