midlife realization

That midlife realization, illustrated above, is one large pill to swallow.  It takes a LOT of water to get that one down your throat.  I realize that it’s not the most optimistic view of life, but then, most of you don’t come here for my optimism.  If you did well, maybe you know better now.  Not that that means anything.

After all, I am merely a character in a comic strip called Bob the Squirrel.

What would I know about the middle of anything?  For the last 11 years, I’ve been telling myself that I’m still at the beginning.  Not really lying, but not exactly telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth to myself.

Ah well.
