I was at a wedding this past weekend. Apparently word had gotten around that I was "retiring". I'm 42 and a young looking 42 at that so there was a lot of perplexed questioning coming my way. I found myself uttering such things as "It's not really retirement" and "just taking a break" and other such assurances. It was quite strange - months ago I was ready to shout from the mountaintops to the world that I was retiring at 42 - I am quite proud of the accomplishment after all. I think part of it is as a very humble guy, it's hard for me to "toot my own horn" - don't want to come across as a braggart I guess.
Anyway, one month countdown is on.
