Passover is coming, dear Readers!! This means it is spring and time for renewal. As all good Jews around the world are celebrating their freedom, so too is Retirement Yenta. She is freeing herself from her past work files. FREE FROM THESE FILES AT LAST! She no longer is kidding herself into thinking she needs these files for reference. She is pushing them out the door as fast as she can. Don’t let her manic composure fool you, this gal is ready for retirement level ten (aka watching the tides in Miami Beach). So, dearest ones, your Yenta wants you to know that everything has its season and everything has its time. She wants you to know that it has a reason and a rhyme. So, allow yourself to let go.
Recently, we celebrated Pesach, or as Retirement Yenta’s goy friends would call it, the Passover. It is one of your dear Yenta’s favorite holidays. This little Yenta loves spending time with family and friends, especially when surrounded by food and drink. Because our people did not have time for the leven to rise, we eat “the matzah” and while it may be yummy to some, it does a number on your this little Yenta’s innards. Retirement Yenta cannot recall any time of year that compares to the Passover in terms of Matzah Bloat! Oy, your little Yenta does not feel oh-so-little after feasting on matzah. So, Retirement Yenta has come up with her own unique way to de-bloat (and without the need for a life raft!) Schedule a colonoscopy to get rid of it. The fluid consumption required will rid your system of ever feeling such a massive swelling. Besides, dear Readers, it is good to have a regular colonoscopy when one reaches that oh-so-close-to-retirement age. So, dear Readers, Retirement Yenta leaves you with this Retirement Yenta Post-Passover Proverb: Passover is a time to ride the Matzah Boat, but this little Yenta can’t stand the Matzah BLOAT…schedule your colonoscopies and you will feel ready to float.
