Here's mine: His woman wants to take him and the kids to Europe for a month-long arts and crafts festival and Tom is totally against it because it would bore him to death and it's during football season.
When his woman proposed the arts and crafts festival, Tom's only out was to come out of retirement.
What are your speculations about this? Your ideas?
My partly educated guess is that the matter is overall about as simple as in any given marriage or relationship when she is retired before he is retired and then she's there waiting for him but the guy is not having it because a lot of guys can't retire or ...as is the case I have seen far more often, he can't stand being at home with her so much after only a week or so.
I remember about a decade ago when I was calling a plumbing firm in Florida for emergency help for a client like many calls to plumbers of course.
This old guy with the same name as of the firm was on the other end of the phone and I found out he was the company founder and owner, and he had a sizable firm. I was surprised he was on the phone with "lil' ol' me" only starting out in that job after I moved to Florida.
As I was on the phone with him, he was helpful and then he tells me, "You know I retired a few weeks ago. We had a party with cake and everything. Then I was home, and I couldn't stand it."
And so after a few weeks at home, he came on back in a scaled down role helping out like that. Good for him I thought plus he was like original gangsta cool.
If he were here, he probably would be on the Board of Governors of the CFL Council of Geezers too.
There is no telling what his wife said or didn't say about any of this.
