So we came to Bordeaux for the weekend, to celebrate my wife’s birthday, and last night my son and I decided to take a couple of drinks after dinner. I don’t go out anymore, just the occasional dinner with friends. Bordeaux is full of life and wonderful bars, restaurants and terraces where you can see hundreds of people enjoy good food and drinks and the company of friends. One thing crossed my mind and it’s still nagging me this morning. I’m about to turn fifty and I fear my midlife crisis is going to be wild. The reason: everybody looked young and beautiful to me, I was just mesmerized looking at the people in the streets of Bordeaux, I felt somewhat envious and old and self-conscious of my declining age. This is gonna cost me when I turn 50, I can feel it.
