Right now, Retirement just feels like Summer Vacation. But we have Very Serious Discussions about it. Like this one.
Scene opens on backyard deck. Rick has just gotten home from work. Nance greets him as he comes out of garage.
Me: What if you come home now and find me on the patio every night with a drink in my hand?
Rick: That would be fine. I’d love it.
Me: No! You don’t want me to drink alone!
Rick: I don’t care.
Me: But what if I get drunk? What if I just drink and drink and drink?
Rick: Don’t worry. I’ll catch up.
