Starting over

I am reading Straight Man by Richard Russo. I've just started, but the first chapter starts out with this observation about a character in the story:


It occurs to me as I study him that Teddy would have a hard time starting over—that is, learning how unfamiliar things work, competing, finding a mate. The business of young men.


So that got me thinking. Would I do well if I had to start over? In a way, I feel like I am just starting to do the things that young men do. Or at least just starting to do them well. So I think I would do pretty well if I had to start over in this fashion.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
