You know, it's funny. But the longer I stay away from work the more allergic to it I become. I realize that I have the option of going back to work if worse comes to worse BUT...I think I'd rather have my toenails pulled out one by one instead of returning to work.

Returning to work is my WORSE nightmare. Any other early retirees share my adversion to work? I think intercst does.
