All of my brain power is going towards mulling over a really, really difficult decision. I’m not feeling funny, witty or even sarcastic or cynical. That SUCKS!!! I feel like I’m being pulled in a hundred different directions, trying to make ends meet and that’s sucking too.

So, would you help me lighten it up a bit? I’m sure I have something Lexish to say about something, but I’m at a loss. Prime the pump for me, eh? Suggest things in my comments for me to sound off about. Or otherwise, just tell me something funny to lighten up my mood. I’m doing too many grown-up things right now. And that’s no fun!!


Christina has shaken me out of my funk already. Read her comment to this post.

Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to add the ideas that are suggested here in the post so that you don’t kill yourself reading through the comments.

  1. Ladies, (or guys) what do you think about dating younger men? I mean really younger ones? I’ve been thinking about this as I approach that 38-40 something prime time we’re supposed to go through? Thoughts? Any anecdotes on what happens to a woman’s labido at that magical time?

  1. Here’s something to make you smile:

    A Husband Letter

    A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining room table:

    “To My Dear Wife, You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don’t be upset. I shall be home before midnight.”
    When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table:

    “My Dear Husband, I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my
    students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old. As a successful businessman who has
    an excellent knowledge of Math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small

    18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18. Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.”

  2. OH Yeah!!! Now we’re talking. Thanks, Christina.

    Actually, I’ve been pondering the whole younger man question for a couple of weeks. I’m nowhere near 54, but I wonder??????????

  3. Good lord I can’t believe I am going to type this, but when I was between marriages, I had a one night thingy with a nineteen year old. I was 34. I thought he was older; he lied about his age AND his virginity status. *gulps* I felt guilty for awhile, but got over it. He had no regrets that I know of.

    Best I ever had. Stamina, size, attitude. Whew.

  4. Oh, Christina, but I’m SO glad you did, hon!! That’s a great story. Let me see if I’ve got it right? You were under the impression that you were going to turn out a slightly younger guy, but instead YOU got turned out by a baby??

    Did you keep his number?

  5. I’m married to a man who is 13 years younger than I am. This has never been relevant because we were both adults when we met.

    I love Christina’s story! If that doesn’t make you laugh out loud, nothing will.

    Yes, being a grown up really sucks sometimes. But with it comes independence. I think it’s worth the tradeoff, especially since we still get to act like kids when we want to and nobody can stop us Because We’re Adults. 🙂

  6. @ Heart

    Nice to hear that it isn’t relevant once you’ve both reached adulthood…but when exactly does that happen for the other gender? I wanna make sure I’m not robbing a cradle (ahem, like Christina, ahem).

    And I wouldn’t trade being a grown-up for anything. Sometimes there are just too many decisions to make at once.

  7. Best. Comments. EVER.

    But unfortunately, I can’t come up with anything that can top this.

    And also unfortunately… I’m just a lowly 44 yr old man. I suddenly feel so… um… inadequate.


  8. Keep the faith, Andy.
    You’re always funny.

    Are you ladies saying you consider 21, not 18, to be adulthood?

    Lex, I’m so glad you asked for something funny, as I thought of something today, and I don’t know anyone else who knows Spanish. Here:

    Car manufacturers wondered why the Nova didn’t sell in Spain.

    What ever happened with Survivor?

  9. Oh, Andy

    You Stud Muffin, you! What are you talking about? K told me you’d put that 19 year old to SHAME!!

    @ ~m~

    No mention of chronological age, but an allusion to maturity.

    Porque no va!!

  10. funny u should mention younger men.. i just wrote a post about same i think u might like.
    would love the ‘Lexism’ on the topic. been waiting for it really.

  11. Because it doesn’t go.

    I’m in a sour mood, so nothing witty from me either. Sorry. I hope to be out of the funk within the next 24 hours.

  12. When I was between marriages, I also had a fling (or two) with younger men. They are very eager to please. (I can’t believe I just said that).

    My husband is 3 1/2 years younger so it’s not that big of a difference but he is quite the hunk of burnin’ love.

  13. Lex, do you have comment moderation? I could swear I left a comment on this post.

    Christina, that little story is the funniest. I like ’em young, I like ’em old. I like ’em all 🙂

  14. @ Gela

    I don’t have comment moderation, so Blogger got you again. I’m thinking about taking off word verification. I know I’ve lost my own comments because I closed the window before I realized that I typed the word incorrectly.
