~ A CHILD'S VIEW OF RETIREMENT ~
 
After a Christmas break, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their 
holidays. 
. 
One small boy wrote this:
. 
We always used to spend Christmas with Grandpa and 
Grandma.  They used to live here in a big brick home,
but grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida.
 .
Now they live in a place with a lot of other retarded
people. They all live in little tin boxes. They ride
three-wheeled bicycles and they all wear name tags because they
don't know who they are.
 .
They go to a big building called a wrecked hall but if
it was wrecked, they got it fixed because it's all right now.
 They play games and do exercises there, but they don't do
them very good. 
 .
There is a swimming pool there.  They go in it and just 
stand there with their hats on. I guess they don't
know how to swim.
 .
As you go into their park, there is a doll house with
a little man sitting in it.  He watches all day so they can't
get out without him seeing them.
.
When they can sneak out they go to the beach and pick 
up shells that they think are dollars.  My grandma
used to bake cookies and stuff but I guess she forgot how.
 .
Nobody cooks.  They just eat out.  They eat the same
thing every night - early birds.  Some of the people are so 
retarded they don't know how to cook at all, so my
grandma and grandpa bring food into the wrecked hall and they
call it " pot luck ".
 .
My grandma says grandpa worked all his life and earned
his retardment.  I wish they would move back up here, but
I guess the little man in the doll house won't let them out.
