No. of Recommendations: 1
Lately I have felt a need to curb my enthusiasm so as not to appear smug. But I don't want to appear as unhappy about ER because I'm not and it would be a real turnoff to the curious. Ugh! Anyone figured out how to a strike a balance?

Those that know me best know that I am retired.

Those that dont know me, if they ask, are told that *we manage our investments* for a living.

It's a polite way of saying, "We're retired, and you arent".
