This is a question Midlife Crisis

I've hit my forties, and my midlife crisis has manifested itself in old band T-shirts and a desire to go on camper van holidays. How has it hit you, or - if you are still a youngling - your elders?

Knob-end car
Last year I hit 38 and feeling that I was rapidly approaching 40 I somehow persuaded my wife that I must get a sports car. Although it is really a bit of a hairdressers car, I plumped for a BMW Z4. Turns out that I am already far too old for such a car as having the roof down was too windy and noisy and the ride was absolutely spine crunching - driving over the slightest imperfection in the road would result in a painful jolt up the spine. I kept it for 9 months before selling the bastard. I now drive a Honda Civic. Diesel. Nice and comfy, reliable and fuel efficient. Mid-life crisis over.

Not so much a crisis, more a shift in perspective
When considering buying a DVD box set, I find myself calculating how many times I might watch it before I die.

At 40, I started divorcing the ex. Our kids were old enough and I'd loathed him for years.
I went off with a bloke about 6 years younger than I am, settled down and eventually married him.

The ex also found a younger partner. So much younger that he went to prison.

That put ME in my place.

The maths of this are all wrong.
It's called a midlife crisis on the basis that a 40 something year old will calculate that he's not likely to live much beyond 80, so goes a bit nuts.

But, 80 is the maximum you can expect. Most people won't get that far.

So, it's more like a 2/3 of the way through life crisis.

Summary: If you're past 33, you'd better hurry up and buy a hang-glider.
