The great thing about being a professional musician is that as long as you have a high school diploma, you can always bag the music and walk into K-Mart for a raise anytime you want to make more money, and another thing is that as long as your Social Security is paid up, no matter how badly they water it down for the next generation, you will make more money after you retire than you do when you are working.
A little humor, but not TOO far from the truth. (pssst: Get a real estate license, too.)
