All the old stories about retirement talk about fat old men receiving their gold watches on the way out the door. That never really interested me; I'm not a fan of gold, and I already own a watch.
That's why your gift for my retirement was one of the best I received. I didn't realize people would be rewarding me for being old enough to retire, but I'm definitely not complaining about the gifts. And I especially loved how thoughtful your gift was. You know that I'll be using all my free time to read books on my deck, and you knew I've been needing a new patio umbrella for some time now. It was so kind of you to remember all of that, and to pick out such a lovely umbrella, too!
I hope I can convince you to come over and join me in the shade, and maybe have a drink or two. I believe retirement is going to suit me just fine. Thank you again.
