Living the dream and Frank doesn’t appreciate it.
There are two ways to have more. One way is to want less!
He can’t imagine how many people would love to have what he has…
Frank?Do yourself a favor and go to sleep.
I don’t know about that “loving“ part sometimes…
Mess up? Third panel! Definitely.
I’ve had a more exciting life, but I’d trade half of mine for half of yours.
However, you can get a can of Welch’s juice, the latest issue of National Geographic about the North Pole, and a Time Magazine Commemorative Issue about Neil Armstrong, all scanned at the checkout counter by a girl named “Raquel”, while listening to Muzak versions of songs previously recorded by your favorite rock band from the days of your youth. How’s that sound?
You are not so broke from buying drugs that you can’t afford rehab.
One way to get to the North Pole is to train for running a marathon in cold weather. Then, enter the North Pole Marathon. You also need about $20 K Euros entry fee, which doesn’t include costs of getting to Svalbard.
Then no soup for you, Frank!
When I hear people complain like this I always say: Take a trip to the children’s hospital and your life will take on a whole new perspective. Most of the patients have a great outlook on their lives.
Frank should have kept those thoughts to himself. He is more self-centered than I realized before.
After Midlife Crisis comes the easy contentment that can accompany seniority and retirement: Find out where your creative loves are and go for it. Learn something you now can appreciate that you avoided in college. (Many community colleges have emeritus programs for seniors.) Take a long road trip. Go to a country you’ve never visited. Get high in the desert and watch the sun rise—again (But remember: drive high, get a DUI.). If you have grandkids, take them to the places you really dug as a youth. Keep going to rock concerts and medieval fairs. Do a retreat at a yoga ashram. Date someone half your age. And most important, take good care of your health.
Frank you are about to find out.
Frank, you didn’t mess up until that last sentence.
