National magazine wants to hear/publish your story!

Hello, early retirees!

DRAFT, a national magazine for beer enthusiasts, is working on a story about early retirees and anyone who's left the corporate world in pursuit of leisure, volunteer work, or an overall better life. We want to hear your stories: Why you stopped working, what you're doing now, and why you love it. Anything goes: The only rule is, you must be age 40 or under. We'll choose a few of you to interview for and be featured in the final story.

For questions about the piece or to share your story, please email Jessica Daynor, DRAFT's senior associate editor, at jessica.daynor@draftmag.com

Thank you... we're looking forward to hearing from you!

Ms. Daynor, what's with the discrimination? Are all of DRAFT's readers age 40 or under?

I didn't realize making a true statement constituted narcissism. I dont have the guts to post my actual pic, but pull of a good shot of Roger F, imagine a normal nose, and you're pretty close to my build and looks. One could think Roger F looks bad, then I'd look bad to them. Beauty's in the eye of the beholder.

If only I had the guy's tennis game though.. * sigh *

no offense taken, considering I obviously was just joking in line with what others already said

Trolling for over 50 men here is probably a dangerous posting although your wanting to hook up with Ms. Daynor might be a turnoff to some.
