Sacky - On Dad's Mid Life Crisis


Sacky: I read that “Mid Life Crisis” Hub you wrote!

Terry: What did you think? Was it humorous?

Sacky: Lies, Half Truths, and Omissions. You’re not fooling anyone.

Terry: To the contrary, I did not lie. It is a true story.

Sacky: Well I notice you missed some details on that one sentence about “ a woman far too young for a man of my age”.

Terry: It wasn’t important. I was being discreet.

Sacky: Not Important! I need details. How old were you?

Terry: If you must know, I was about 35 at that time.

Sacky: And that very young woman?

Terry: Is that relevant?

Sacky: Spit it out Pops!

Terry: If you must know she was 19 and of Italian Origin.

Sacky: CAD!

Terry: I was not a CAD. The relationship lasted over a year, and was somewhat serious.

Sacky: Right, was she a hottie?.

Terry: Well, yes, but you make it all sound cheap and tawdry!

Sacky: Are you telling me it was sophisticated and intellectual?

Terry: (sarcastic) Yes, we were studying Cosmology at Berkeley with a concentration on Dark Matter!   Of course not. It was free spirited and quite different.

Sacky: And did you ever stop your youthful shenanigans long enough to have lunch? Or did you swing on the chandeliers all day?

Terry: I resent your implying it was simply sexual, well, you are wrong. We had a bond!

Sacky: Right, you loved her for the pasta and marinara sauce.I am sure!

Terry: Oh all right! What do you want to hear, It was a lust filled craze 24 hours a day and it was strictly passion?

Sacky: Yummy! You know what I like! Tell me more!

Terry: If you are attempting to embarrass me you’ve succeeded. I was smitten with her youth and beauty. I was not a philanderer. I was simply young at heart.

Sacky: I don’t think the Heart is the part of the anatomy that gave you a problem.

Terry: Oh, isn’t possible for a man to relive his youth the way he wanted it to be the first time around without being harassed? Can he not have the pleasures he once dreamed without seeming irresponsible?

Sacky: No! Was the marinara sauce good?

Terry: It was to die for!

Sacky: What happened?

Terry: We had a little spat and she went home for a short while to punish me.

Sacky: What did my Don Juan do then?

Terry: I missed conversations more pertinent to my age. My youthful quest was over.

Sacky: So it was the conversation you wanted with Hot Pants?

Terry: Sometimes you are such a nettlesome pet.

Sacky. You’ll get over it. I love you. Kiss my belly!

Brilliant Terry,

I vote this one up.

Take care

Sacky does not suffer from the doubt of intellectual questioning. She knows what she believes an says it! But she is a loving Pooch. Spent a week eating what she could find in garbage cans before we found her. Maybe that's why she is so confident. She is a survivor!

Glad to see you as always and grateful for your comment. I have many duties these days as my wife is recovering from surgery. She is getting almost as spoiled as Sacky, what, with my great cooking! But what I am saying, is my time on line is a bit limited.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 20, 2011:

This is soo funny... It happens to women too. I like Sacky. Put a star on her door.. Did you say bedroom? Humm


Terry Phlip hirneisen (author) from Shenandoah Valley on April 20, 2011:

Sacky certainly is a hoot! Thank you Fay! Thank you Jillian. Sacky now wants a star on her bedroom door!

Donna Lichtenfels from California, USA on April 20, 2011:

Started laughing almost immediately! So very funny, especially: Lies, Half Truths, and Omissions. You’re not fooling anyone.

Great way to start my morning! I could get used to reading Sacky every morning with my coffee!

Fay Paxton on April 20, 2011:

Terry, you are so funny. People are really nuts. It's funny isn't it that women, in order to regain their youth go and get plastic go get a young woman. Go figure.
