April 15 we all know means tax time. If you have extra cash you want to fund your Roth IRA or your 401K. April 15 also means swimsuit season is around the corner. Should I fund my Roth IRA or should I use the money for liposuction?
Once again I forgot to diet and tone up for the swimsuit season. Every year it comes around and it seems every year I forget that I may or may not have to get into a swimsuit. Gravity is having her way with my body. I really don’t think liposuction is enough anymore!
There are some swimsuits that promise to make you look 10 pounds thinner. There are other swimsuits that promise to hold everything in tightly. Who hasn’t tried on some of these suits, comparable to putting on 3 pairs of Spanx? I can’t imagine trying to get one off when wet.
For swimsuit season this year I will be looking at board shorts and a tank top. I have contemplated a wet suit that I think is great for indoor pools. For summertime, the wet suit may call attention unless I pretend to be doing some pacific ocean/cold river sport.
So my extra money wont be tied up in my body fat. I will send it to my Roth IRA and it hopefully grow fatter. A fat retirement account is one of the only things that fat, used as an adjective, is a good thing!
I don’t think my financial advisor reads my blog. If she does I am not sure she would think it very funny. She is of the nature that you do with your money what you want but ultimately having it make more money is best. That’s what I will do this year.
I will be going into the swimsuit season with new board shorts and tank top. Usually the shorts have pockets and the top is enough sun exposure that any person needs. Perhaps I could start a trend for the over 55 woman?
Another tax time and another swimsuit season and my Roth IRA is safe from any elective medical fees!
Do you contribute to your retirement savings? Are you ready for swimsuit season?
