Although I don't know what the reason is.
It's been exactly one year since I put down the pencil, closed the books and handed in my school keys. Except for the keys those are actually metaphors since it was all online - no pencils or books.
Things that I do in my retirement
-get to know all the people on daytime CBC radio
-wonder what all those retired people who are so "busy" do all day
-answer the phone to telemarketers who, somehow, aren't there
-less multitasking - doing one thing at a time uses up more time
-watch bread dough rise (not as fast as paint drying but equally as fun)
Things I don't do in my retirement
-read, at least not any more than I used to
-clean house (I told my housekeeper I'm not one of those crazy people who retire then decide they can clean their own house. The reason I had a housekeeper when I was working wasn't because I didn't have time to clean, it was because I DON'T LIKE IT.)
-get fat (not yet anyway)
Well I googled it and I guess this is the reason it's called retirement.
