Join me as I go on a journey to discover what's happening in my life now that I'm on the wrong side of 50 (and attempt to keep sane by venting here, online). Hopefully I'm not just another stale pale white male ranting on the internet - but there are no guarantees!

TMI Tuesday: January 23, 2018 ~ The most perfect favorite things!
Let’s talk faves, the most, and perfection at TMI Tuesday blog.
1. Favorite childhood memory?
~ I'm over 50 - you expect me to remember?
Actually, I do have one.
When I was 10 a girl invited me to her house after school on a Friday, to swim in her pool. She was absolutely gorgeous and had long hair and wore the prettiest clothes. Her parents were rich and lived on the ridge that over looked the town. Their house was huge and so was their swimming pool. Everything was built out of expensive stone and beautifully landscaped. They must have been millionaires, they were 'living large' two decades before that was a thing.
The sun was perfect as it shone down on us and we swam and talked and hung out for hours. As it turned dark a party (for grownups) started and her parents were oblivious to the fact I was still there. My parents rolled up at 9pm and pulled me out of the pool, having wondered where I was and why I hadn't come home at 6pm. I didn't care, I had spent the day with the prettiest girl in school and we had gotten on so well it was clear we were meant to be together.
On Monday she said 'Hi' to me and then went back to her friends. Love is fleeting.
2. Favorite moment in the last 3 months?
~ Last October, when my wife flew home from Amsterdam five days early (due to a work thing) leaving me to sneak off on an unplanned side trip of my own to Barcelona. (I contemplated visiting the UK but looking up fellow sex bloggers IRL is not a smart idea).
3. Favorite drink on a hot summer day?
~ Jack Daniels & Coke in a tall glass with big ice blocks, mixed strong. I will happily accept Jim Beam.
4. Perfect day out: what, where, with whom?
~ My wife and I are in the fortunate position of being able to (within reason) do pretty much what we like, where ever we like, and with whomever we like. Unfortunately lately this has meant us each 'doing our own thing' ie not doing things together. I think 2018 is the year I become ambivalent about our waning sex life.
5. Your most unexpected achievement?
~ I haven't had any sex of any sort since January 4th (not even solo) and yet I've managed to keep it together. Usually I start climbing the walls, but this time I've been able to contain myself. The trick is to watch lots of Netflix and not join your wife in bed - otherwise you just upset yourself festering over the sex you're not having with that woman lying next to you.
I decided I would not initiate and see how long it would take for her to initiate sex. The experiment has been terminated at 20 days because my wife left today for 8 days in China. She's at a BNG 'conference' but that's only 4 days so the rest is shopping in Hong Kong. Or fucking her lover - what do I know? She has quite literally told me nothing about where she's going, where she's staying, or how I can contact her. I only know the conference is 4 days (3.5 really) because I googled it.
Bonus: The kindest thing you ever did for a stranger?
~ I am comfortable knowing I've done some kind things for strangers, without needing to mention it here. Because that might identify me IRL.
But yes, I'm a believer in random acts of kindness (for their own sake).
