She Got Me Good!

This morning, while waiting for the tram that would whisk Mrs. TBF away to the office, Mrs. TBF turned to me in all seriousness and said:

"I think I'm going to resign today."

Already mentally tabulating the inventory for the move back to America, I looked at her somewhat bewildered. Then came the next words out of her mouth:

"APRIL FOOL'S!!!"

OK... she got me. But how long is it until my self-imposed deadline for leaving Switzerland for good?

Oh yeah, this long.

wow - she did get you good. The part I question is where the "self" imposed and we come into action.. Does that mean you will look for a job?

I can almost see the expression on your face. Well done Mrs. TBF! LOL

ET - The "self" is that "I' set up a deadline for when I will move out of Switzerland. October 6, 2010 will be the ten year anniversary of moving here, and that's all I'm willing to accept. I don't want to stay here more than ten years. And for the job... no, I won't be looking for a job - I am retired.
