David watches sports on television with headphones on.
Well, as you might have surmised, this post is about my husband, David. And as you might have already known, David is an accountant by training. He really does love to think about numbers.
For example, he has been telling me that we will NOT out-live our savings, assuming we live 20 more years. If we die in 20 years, there will still be savings for the kids to inherit.
Why 20 years? Well, if you check the Social Security website, you will note that only 1 in 4 people live to be 90, and only 1 in 10 people live to be 95. My mother is very lucky to be alive at 97.
David said it is highly unlikely he will be the 1 in 4 people who live to be 90. More than likely, he will die in his 80s. He is now 64, and I am 67.
Kind of depressing, huh? Yes, we all want to live forever, but what are the odds? Well, now, you know.
