My wife and I recently heard that our 5-year-old son should expect to lose teeth soon. "The going rates," my wife said, "are $5 for the first tooth that falls out and $2 for each tooth following."

So, what is your 510(k) or IRA worth? 90 percent of its value from last month? 60 percent? I never wanted to retire, anyway. The thought of wasting my time on hobbies, enjoying grandchildren, trips on cruise ships, rebuilding classic cars and going to baseball games is abhorrent. I'd rather be working.

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on.
