Today I received my yearly overview letter of Social Security Benefits. They let me know what I’d be receiving if I decided to retire at age 62; however, they also included what I like to call the “just in-case” clause. Like, just in-case we run out of money, a scenario that is not only possible, but also probable. The big date they gave for the storehouse of wealth to run dry is 2037.
It’s a waste of stamps to send me these letters every year. They may as well save their stamp money, pay some poor old person with it, and send my kids one notice in about 30 years saying their parents need money. Problems solved.
Anyway, I decided that I may as well take my retirement early before the well runs dry and my skin gets so baggy that I have to fold it into my swimsuit. So see you all in Tahiti. The second hut is mine!
I just checked on airfare and I think I’ll only make it to Florida.
