This morning after worship I chatted with friends and then took the pot of coffee down to the bookstore, and guess who was working there? The woman who retired yesterday. Old habits.

“You don’t look like you retired!” I said.

“Oh, well, I am!” she said.

“I guess you retired a little bit.”

“I retired from responsibility,” she said.

“I’ve heard that’s the best way,” I said. “So now it’s only for fun.”

“Yes,” she said.
