Two Digit Midget

“If you think health care is expensive now, wait until you see what it costs when it is free.”

P.J. O’Rourke

Today I am officially a Medicare Two Digit Midget.  It is now less than 100 days until my 65th birthday and my turn at the medicare buffet.  Since I’ll be getting there before most of you rest assured that I will exercise restraint.  I will not take the last expensive hip replacement just like I didn’t take the last piece of prime rib at the wedding buffet. Ha!

I first heard the expression “two digit midget” when I was in the army and everybody was counting the days until they got to go home from Vietnam.  It is not intended to offend those who are height or digitally challenged.

Here is a link to my post when I became a “three digit midget.”
