Fun Little Chat at the Bank

I was out this morning around 10 AM doing errands (which, as you know, are pretty easy because few people are doing errands at 10 AM on a non-holiday Friday) and made a stop at my local bank to make my rare credit card payment. I stroll up to the teller (no customers in the bank, as usual) and slide my check and payment coupon to her. In a good mood, she asks me if I am looking forward to the upcoming weekend. As an early retiree among many others here in this forum, you can probably guess how I answered her:

"Every day is like a weekend!"

(I did not tell her why I said that but it doesn't really matter, does it?)

The rest of my errands were quick, easy, and uneventful.

Bad part about retirement is that you never get a vacation.

True. But the good part is that you never have to wait for one.

You can find college football games several times a week now days. Making each day more like Saturday during the football season.
