I has been over six months since I retired so I'm thinking I should make some thoughtful comment about my new condition.
However, the only thing that occurs to me is that our evening meals are slightly more interesting now that I can spend more than 15 minutes preparing them. In other words, I have not purchased a rotisserie chicken since last June.
Until yesterday. In need of an instant meal I broke down and bought a precooked bird in a little plastic coffin. Here is what I discovered: the price has gone up $3.00 since last summer and the chicken is much, much saltier than I remember. Perhaps extra salt costs more. Regardless, I am sure the salt is part of a plan to lure me back to my old chicken-a-week habit.
Can't be done. I'm immune.
Hear this, chicken pushers. In retirement I have time and energy to resist. I wasn't buying those birds because they were delicious. It was all about convenience, and now I have more options.
