There is that moment that comes in the life of every young Playboy-reading male when you first discover that the Playmate is younger than you. It's a milestone that ricochets inside your brain that delineates a phase of manhood.
The second milestone comes when you discover that the Playmate's mother is now younger than you. That delineates the second phase of manhood.
I haven't quite it the third phase yet, but I'm well on my way.
A friend recently did the top 100 songs meme, and I realized that in the year she graduated high school, I had already burned out of my first career, gone to college for seven years and received two degrees, was well into my second career and doing work on what would become my first patent.
It also made me realize that I have been divorced for fifteen years, and that my ex wife is now more than twice as old as she was when we first met.
And that also makes for a "what have I ever done" theme happening. What have I done that has made a lasting impact on anything? What is the legacy that I hand down to future generations?
Not feeling good about the answer.
