I talk a lot about retiring, but so far it is all just a lot of talk. A recent conversation between my granddaughter, Hope, who is 9, and her little sister, EJ, who is 3, may keep me on the job a lot longer.
EJ is now going to the same preschool Hope went to. Mrs. G was Hope's favorite teacher and is now also EJ's favorite. EJ said that maybe Beck, who is 1, could have Mrs. G for his teacher when it was time for him to go to preschool.
Hope: Mrs. G might not still be there when Beck goes to preschool. She might retire by then.
EJ: What does retire mean?
Hope: It means when people get older they retire. They sit at home and watch TV and get plumper while they are waiting to go to the retirement home.
Egad! I think I will be going off to work now!
