I'm happy knowing I'm not alone. Aside from school, been working since i was 13, and the thought of not having my 8-12 hours a weekday out of my house keeping busy, scares the shit out of me.
Lots of folks I've worked with take that as a joke from me; they speak of sitting on a beach, jigsaw puzzles, drinking on the porch, enjoying the sunset/sunrise yeah blah blah.
I'm married. 4 kids, ranging from diaper age to college student, and another on the way(!)... Lol. And I'm 40.
Honestly, I see the beach as a shoreline with dark 45 degree salt water and a bunch of towel clutching jerks scattered about. @dontpanicbobby
we're almost neighbors lol, North shore... An empty beach, to me is still just a beach, nothing more. I don't see how palm trees and sunshine make it paradise...?
Very seldom drinker, no recreational funny stuff, to the surprise of a LOT of people.... I'm just, asocial in a way. Acquired taste. I don't have/want any friends, just acquaintances (it's complicated lol)... So a social life after retiring leaves my wife and kids pretty much, and they drive me insane in large doses.&nbsp; I'm a mechanical/electronic tinkerer, former HVAC tech, auto mechanic, now in physical plant, great gig. Work has always been my love, my drive, my escape. I'd die without it. And did any of you see Family Guy's portrayal of Dick Cheney as a Walmart greeter? That would be me.
People say wait 20 years and it's guaranteed that I'll change my mind. Lol nope...
