What Is The Meaning Of Semi Retirement?
I think John thinks it means walk from the bed to the table and back again. Today while I'm taking a nap he sits down on the bed and says I've already done everything and I don't know what to do now. Well Buddy I can find something for you to do. How 'bout washing a vehicle or cleaning out a garage? He ignored me and repeated the same sentence. You work a good part of your life looking forward to retirement and when it gets here you don't know what to do? John doesn't drink coffee so the morning coffee chat is out for him. He doesn't bowl, going to movies cost too much, after all he has cable and a recliner. He could join Silver Sneakers, heaven knows his hair is silver enough. Oh no he isn't going anywhere near a gym. When we go out to eat he wolfs his food down and I'm still chewing as we go out the door. Its as if he thinks someone is going to come in and remove his recliner and tv. Relax I tell him, enjoy your life while you can. He just came in here and told me he has to go to bed to preserve his beauty so that he doesn't get old and wrinkled.
