The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

As in "You wish"

One of the youngsters from the shop wanted some currency conversions. After not a whole lot of questioning, she explained what she had in mind: she'd like to find someplace where she could retire on, say, $500.

Now the Yankee dollar is prized in some circles, but not so highly that you can live off one of them for more than 24 hours or so. I have to conclude that she's been watching too many informercials or something.

One can actually retire on $500 -- if one doesn't plan on living longer than a month or so.

Well, she's still in her twenties, so I assume she's not planning to pass on within thirty days.

Then I'm afraid she'll need to plan otherwise.
