Okay. I admit I’m not necessarily up on all the latest PC terminology. Please help me.
Last I knew, my husband and I were “Dink-ers” (Double income, no kids).
As of September 1, the “nk” still fits, but the “Di,” unfortunately, doesn’t.
So I ask. What are we now? Is there a new word (acronym) that fits us?
What do you think? ..Maybe:
Nink-ers—no income, no kids.
Not exactly true, since we do have some pension and Medicare benefits.
Pink-ers –pension income, no kids
Uh-oh..Too reminiscent of the McCarthy era?
Mink-ers- Medicare income, no kids
No? I agree. Sounds like we’re living rich, plus the animal rights advocates would protest.
That’s it. I know.
Retirees. That’s what I’ll call us.
With gratitude on this Labor Day to those workers to whom we have passed the torch, and with gratitude on this Labor Day to a country where men and women have the privilege of working and being retired. God bless us all!
To whom are you grateful this Labor Day?
What about Sinkers? Some Income No Kids…
Happy Labor Day! Thanks for reading/reacting. Your responses always leave me smiling… (Just between the two of us, might Sinkers make us sound as if we’re going down–in jeopardy of drowning? (True?)…Let’s just assume not; instead, let’s imagine we’re sinking our teeth into a delicious retirement.)
Mm perhaps it is a little bit too close to the truth! Sinking our teeth into cream buns sounds better tho’.
Make those cream buns éclairs, and then: hook, line, and sinker! I’m in:)
How’s your first week of retirement been? So far so good for me.
Been thinking about you, Carol! Glad all is well. Thanks for asking about my first week. Unlike you, I’m still on the roller coaster…Appreciate your being along for the ride–even as a cheerleader on the side, letting me know there’s a coming to peace to look forward to when I put an end to the ride. I appreciate our staying connected..God bless you. Take good care!!!
