Oh yes. Let me savor that wonderful word. RETIRED. RE-TI-RED. Retired. Re-tired.
Possible synonyms: Broke. Worried? Damn fool? What's for supper? Supper? Are you kidding?
Well, sometimes you just gotta jump. On December 29, 2015, I reached a birthday that shall not be named. On December 31, 2015, I threw in the work-til-you-drop-but-it's-a-paycheck towel. Nowhere near enough money saved. (That's a pretty big club these days). But ... what the hell. As Mehitabel the cat famously said, "there's a dance in the old dame yet."
Where to from here? Writing. What else? I am determined to give my avocation a try before:
- I die
- Working kills me
- Worry kills me
- I go broke anyhow
