Mike and Anne have just taken early retirement, retiring at 50 after quite productive careers. They've contributed a lot to society, in spite of their early retirement, and they're looking forward to being free and to having time together, while they're still young enough to enjoy it.The Monday after they retire, they sit together at the kitchen table and decide what they want to do to celebrate. They talk about traveling and try to decide if they want to see nature or cities, if they want the variety of going to a lot of places or the ease that comes from staying in one place. Eventually they decide that they can get a lot of what they want if they take a cruise, and they decide to take a week-long cruise to the Caribbean. They talk about the cruise excitedly, each coming up with ideas for making it the experience of a lifetime. Anne is a little worried that she might be seasick, but Mike tells her that dramamine is extremely effective against motion sickness. Anne says, "We can make it a second honeymoon! We can spend a lot of time in our cabin when we're between ports, if you know what I mean."Mike knows what she means, and he heads to the drugstore, buying a small bottle of dramamine and a box of condoms for the trip.He comes back with his purchases and they talk some more. Suddenly he stops. "Why are we only going for a week? We're still thinking like working people, like we have to be back to work in a week, but we're retired -- we can go for TWO weeks!" Anne agrees. She looks at his purchases and suggests that, in that case, they'll need some more supplies.Mike goes back to the drugstore and buys another bottle of dramamine and another box of condoms. When he returns home, Anne says, "You know, I was thinking while you were gone, and we're STILL thinking like working stiffs, going for only two weeks. Let's go for a month!" Mike agrees happily.He returns to the drugstore and buys a BIG bottle of dramamine and the largest box of condoms they have. Finally the pharmacist can stand it no longer, and he explodes: "If it makes you so damned sick, why do you do it so bloody often?!"No, I didn't make this up -- I read it somewhere.
