I teach. When I'm not teaching, I write. When I retire from teaching, I'll still write. When I retire from writing, I'll die.

Thirty four. But I will no longer be colorblind at that age, and I will have taken four years of Spanish in high school, and I will never have quit piano lessons, and I will never have gone through that nonsense of smoking cigaretts.

And at the age of 34, I will invest ever dime I own in Apple stock.

I checked my calendar and it didn't have the answer ... I hugged my wife and I feel years younger suddenly. It must be true that you are only as young (or old) as you feel haha.

Women will get you in trouble. Especially if the wife stumbles on them. Get a lap dog. The best furry thing you will ever pet.

Re: I'm serious - what do you do all day?

What some people might call "procrastination"....I like to refer to as "thinking and planning".

And what some people might call "nothing", I like to call "centering".

And sometimes I work on the boat.
