Last night I dreamed that I was sitting with one of my former bosses and a bunch of other colleagues round a big table. My former boss was passing a gift-wrapped present across the table to me and everyone was smiling.

In my dream, I suddenly realised they were giving me a retirement present.

"No", I started protesting "no, I don't want to retire. I'm fine. I like my job. I'm not retiring."

But no one said anything, and they all kept smiling so I opened the present.

It was a game of Boggle.

I was quite pleased because I actually like Boggle.

But I did wonder why they hadn't spent more money on me.
