Because Moms Can't Be Afraid to Tell it Like it is
Seven shades of grey
I often wonder what I'll be like when I retire. Will I be laid-back and loose or uptight and unyielding? Will I have enough money to travel or will I be so poor that I will be forced to eat Friskies topped with stolen ketchup packets? It's anybody's guess.
If I had to choose, I would prefer to spend my retirement years like my in-laws. They travel the world, live in a house near the beach and have a bunch of crazy friends. I met their friends at the pool during a recent visit. They are a riot! They also clued me in on a few things:
I found out you are never too old to read Fifty Shades of Grey; Mathew McConaughey is sizzling hot to ALL women; down south they have parties in their garages; and most women have a made-up name for themselves already picked out, just in case they wish to remain anonymous, and these chosen pseudonyms are always fiery. So thank you Veronica, Monique, Stella, Ruby, Jezebel, Josie and Cinnamon. You are grey goddesses! I hope I'm just like y’all when I retire.
