a recent conversation ...
city girl: ps I started a retirement fund because my office doesn't offer one
I have $20 in it
me: woo! ... I'm beating you to retirement: I have $35 in a 401k
city girl: LOL!!!
I don't have a 401K, I have a Roth IRA which I just set up
me: I opened it when I was subbing ... and haven't put money into it since
then the market ate half of it ...
city girl: eep!
me: and now i'm back up in the $30 range
... so, combined, we have a $55 retirement
city girl: we are going to retire in style, clearly
me: We can ... I don't know, go out to eat someplace mid-range
city girl: LOL
