Dear Dear Friend Who I Know Checks This Thing As You Begin Your Pretend Workday:

You said two things to me yesterday which resoundingly resonated. 

The bit about me entering into an obvious mid-life crisis – and it being the BEST time in anyone’s life solely because we’re old enough to know better but young enough to still do it?  Brilliant.

Secondly, the advice you gave me as I was waffling over a sizable purchase and directional change? Spot on. Especially the part concerning most people thinking otherwise about what I do and why, but you know better.

Indeed you do. 

Dammit, I hate when you’re right.
