I retired on a pretty bare bones budget. I would have worked longer but could no longer stand it and had enough to quit. According to the numbers, I have enough to last me the rest of my life at my current lifestyle.

But I continue to worry about the things that could go wrong, especially the cost of health care.

I've only had one job in my life that I actually liked--teaching at a university. There is actually a chance I could do that again, although I would only want to do it part time. Well, actually I don't want to work at all, but maybe it would be helpful to have a little more money to either take care of the cost of health care, and if I don't need it, then I could improve my standard of living to include more luxuries.

So my question is, if you found a job that wasn't too obnoxious, would you ever consider working, even part time, again? What are the issues you'd consider when making such a decision?
