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?
