    And I love cocaine.
    What I love about this post is the way it so rapidly and elegantly establishes an airy feeling of serenity which is totally obliterated by the conclusion.

    Well, it helps to be married to the right woman, but I thought that went without saying.

    How would you say a person ought to prepare for retirement so as to be well and fully psychologically ready?

    Well, I'm not certain how you mean that based on your previous posts. I simply meant save enough, pay off your debt, and be ready to accept and enjoy a life in which nobody, outside of your wife, cares what you do or say. Some people can't accept the loss of power/prestige/importance they had achieved during their employed life. By the way, I think that latter comment applies to both corporate executives and house painters. Both got to some position of earned respect that won't exist in retirement.

    Thank you. Although I do appreciate somewhat the respect I've gradually earned over the course of my short career, I am very ready for what you describe. Frankly I wish people cared far less about what I say than they do now. As it is I struggle to be ignored; a state of life where I am effortlessly ignored sounds like bliss.
