When one gets to that certain point in one’s career, or that certain age in life where one’s eventual “Retirement in the Sky” seems much closer than is comfortable to think about, one often experiences one’s midlife crisis. Retirement Yenta has seen it time and time again. Co-workers and friends, who were once upstanding members of the work force or upstanding members of the community, suddenly change their thinking, drop everything they once held dear and buy a sports car/motorcycle/”younger model mate.” Now, your dear Yenta does not support the latter (you know, the younger model mate, unless said current mate has already retired to the sky), she does support, however, enjoying one’s midlife crisis. This little Yenta notes one thing about everyone in their midlife crisis: they are having fun. Who cares if you are 55 and look a fool to the neighborhood. It’s your life, have fun. Don’t deprive yourself. Retirement Yenta says this: When you are a “mid-yid,” don’t flip your lid. Have some fun instid!
