The Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife Crisis!
Do you follow the rules? Always meet or exceed expectations? Try to make everyone else happy?
Are you sick of it?
Are you ready to rebel, but don’t want to cheat on your spouse or go into debt?
This infomercial is for you!
You need the Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife* Crisis! manual right now. Do not delay!
*We at Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife* Crisis! are now legally forbidden from suggesting how old you should be to have a crisis, or predicting how long you’re going to live. We legally support melting down on your own timetable.
If you buy our proven program, you’ll get over three pages of crisis-having tips like these:
- Relate every Bible Study discussion back to 50 Shades of Grey. “The suffering in Biblical times reminds me so much of Ana, how the bondage drew her closer to Christian, just like Paul’s blindness made him a believer. You know?”
- Feed the kids McDonald’s for lunch. You don’t need to cut up grapes anymore, sister. Kick back with that special sauce (and we’re not talking about Quarter Pounders), and enjoy a whine-free meal for once.
- Speaking of Quarter Pounders…
- Interview pool boys. Even if you don’t have a pool. Remember, this is a risk-free crisis, so go ahead and make the interview as creative as you like, but it must end there.
- Buy that bikini or skintight dress or outrageous lingerie or whatever it is that makes you feel hawt. But for the love of eyeballs everywhere, do not wear your purchase in public. Remember, we’re not out to hurt anyone here. The act of shopping at Forever 21 will be enough to make you feel like you’re walking on the wild side. You could wear your new getup while you interview the pool boys, though.
- Tell the PTA to stuff it. As in those packets of back-to-school info that you will not be stuffing this year. There are at least 100 eager kindergarten parents just dying to get involved. You have months worth of People magazines and reality TV to catch up on.
This is all great, you’re thinking. Sign me up for the Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife* Crisis! manual right now!
You’re one smart woman. Caring a little less and looking at pool boys a little more is awesome.
But you may be wondering just how long this crisis business lasts. Stuffing packets and cutting grapes? Boring as hell, but you really do care about your family and their education. Just as we at Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife* Crisis! cannot dictate when your crisis happens, we also cannot control how long your crisis lasts.
Here are a couple testimonials that might help you decide to take the plunge, and just how long to stay submerged:
My kids were at camp and my husband had a business trip, so I scheduled my crisis for a 4-day period during the third week of June last year. Unfortunately, the PTA was on hiatus during that time, and all the pool boys were already gainfully employed. But since my kids were gone, I ate McDonald’s and tried on my 14-year-old’s dresses. By day four I was pretty bloated and lonely, but the first three days were rejuvenating. -Babs, age 49
Last fall when the holiday madness was picking up and the kids each had 27 homework assignments due before the Thanksgiving break, I kind of lost it. That’s when I saw the Risk-Free Quarter-to-Midlife* Crisis! infomercial. I ordered it immediately! The lines at Forever 21 were a lot longer than the lines at Coldwater Creek – you know, holiday rush – so I hit the Creek instead. I did buy a blouse in a smaller-than-usual size, though, and the pull of the buttons was a real rush. I had to end my crisis after one day, because my annual interfaith, multi-denominational holiday cards had to get done if I wanted them to arrive on December 1. Which of course I did. But that one day was a real kick, and I kept the manual in case I need to have a crisis again next year! - Melinda, age 37
