What would I do if?

The store where PezWitch works will be closing down in a couple of weeks. This has my dear wife in a bit of a tizzie. The problem is not money, I make plenty enough to support us, she has not had to work for years. The problem is, being a computer tech is part of who she is, it is part of her identity and she is afraid to loose that. She is unlikely to be able to get another job in the field, with her age and health, no one would hire her. So unless she decides to do something different, this will probably be the end of her working life and she will be officially retired.

I think this is a very large personality difference between us. While she dreads unemployment even without risk, if our roles were reversed, I would probably be so happy no one could bare to be around me. I think PezWitch has the same problem my mother did, she is afraid of boredom, me, I have no such fear. There are too many things to do in this world for boredom to ever be a problem for me.

  • I would rent a small hole in the wall retail space and open a business, probably sell Comic Books, Role Playing Games, Magic the Gathering cards and Anime porn.
  • I would start an activity group, I would love to start a club where we played D&D or a Magic the Gathering League, but heck even a book club would be fun.
  • I would volunteer at the local library, become a school crossing guard or a lunch room monitor. If children were too annoying, there are plenty of places to volunteer that need help.
  • I might become a political activist, according to the internet all those protesters are paid big money to travel all over the country and protest stuff, so why shouldn’t I get some of that sweet protester money.
  • I would write books, does not matter if its good, in this day and age you do not need an agent, an editor and a publisher anymore. You can pretty much sell direct via Amazon Kindle services. I could churn out 250,000 words a year of porn easy.

To me this is just the beginning of such a list, I could go on and on.
