Default Turning 40

I am turning forty over the weekend and many people are wondering if I will start my mid-life crisis soon. I just keep thinking "how can I have a mid-life crisis when thanks to aviation I have been in a permanent state of crisis since I was 17". It seems to me that one needs a long period of unchanging boredom in order to feel the need for a crisis. These days all I long for is a state of stability.

Is there such a thing as a quarter life crisis?

Am I the first case?

Ya know- come to think of it, the big 4-0 is deserving of something more than urinewater beer. How about some bubbly?

Happy Birthday Skyhigh. Don't worry, Be Happy...LOL.

For what it's worth, I've been loving my 40's. I hope that you enjoy them too.
