vespaIt used to be that men and sometimes women reaching that certain age would grasp at youth in what has been labelled midlife crisis. Easily identified by acquisitions –  fast cars, motorcycles, a new look, and perhaps spousal enhancements.  Apparently the new symbol for midlife crisis is skateboarding. Not me.  Not even with training wheels and rubber bumpers. Think “skateboard geezer”.   When the urge to reclaim your youth hits,  how do you avoid all  those disrespectful snorts of half concealed laughter.  Strap on a helmet, throw off all that restrictive clothing and zip around the house in a Vespa office chair.  Love the turn signals.
