Remember that old bromide about the cost of luxury items....If you have to ask, you can't afford it? I now use a derivative of this when I am asked what I do with myself all day. To them I simply reply, "If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand my answer." It brings an end to that discussion rather quickly.

True! Except that some of us would like to know what activities you have chosen now that you don't have to go to work. Not "How could you take up eight to twelve hours a day without a job? What on earth can you possibly find to do all day?" but "There must be so many things that are filling your time now! Could you tell me about some of them?"
