According to a new book, “The Big Tilt”, there is a new mental disorder affecting middle-aged men.  The author claims that there are 15% fewer single men in their 40’s than women, so the few available men are being fiercely persued.  The result?  “Hotness Delusion Syndrome” - the belief that they are more sexually appealing than they really are. According to the book, a 44-year-old single guy “receives a lot of attention because he’s the only thing going around.  He can be balding and paunchy, but this is not what he sees in the mirror.  He see nothing less than trim, taut and, so he is told, terrific!”

- After the spring we’ve had, I suffered from “Hot Delusion Syndrome” on Memorial Day when the Temperature hit 90!
