You know you’re in a midlife crisis when….
By Amy Ferris

7. There are no molehills, only mountains.

6. You no longer want—or need—to punctuate any single part of your life with a period

5. Heads Ambien. Tails Ambien.

4. You call The Women's Correctional Center to see if they have "week to week" availability.

3. Going through the alphabet, you immediately think Xanax when you come to the letter X.

2. Networking is the new gossiping.

1. Finally, midlife means you're closer to death, so you make sure to keep everything & everyone at arm’s length, postponing the inevitable as long as possible.
