Individual Retirement Account

Retirement? That doesn't exist anymore. In three generations, a tale like yours of IRAs or 401(k)s will be thought of as legendary. It's like getting a fish that gives three wishes and having it for dinner.

Raymond: quite true. I do not expect to "retire". I expect to work till I drop. I'd like to rest on my laurels. Whatever those are.

I had a similar experience when I started my job a gazillion years ago. I didn't immediately join the retirement plan b/c I couldn't believe I would be around long enough to make it worthwhile. Well, I eventually joined and am glad I did. But I did at the time feel very "me" vs. "them." (I still do but for different reasons.)

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
