Maybe I should have started a 401K



I’m starting out August working 10 days in a row ... which will pretty much take me to mid-August, come to think of it. When I was young—ahem, younger—that kind of schedule wouldn’t have phased me a bit.
But now I’m old … er. Still, it’s all part of my plan: to make overtime and get my bills paid down, so that when I qualify for full retirement, I can just sit back and go to work writing.
A “full retirement” in which I still need to make money may seem ironic, but what am I supposed to do? Spend all my time playing with power tools in a wood working shop? I have only so many fingers.
You know what retirement is really all about? Moving south.

  1. I know I'd be lost in a wood shop, and it would probably end badly for me!

    1. I took a wood shop class ... not voluntarily, of course. Got an incomplete, but came through with all my limbs intact, so it's a win.

  2. That's what I keep telling Collin. Social Security probably won't be around by the time he retires.

    1. If some honest accounting was done, we'd discover it's not around now.
