freshman retiree
 n.— «Last July, after more than 20 years of service—a period in which the family moved 15 times, lived in four countries and endured three deployments—Todd, 44, and Julie, 40, retired from the Air Force.…Last August the Nielsens finally returned to their house in suburban St. Louis. They call themselves “freshman retirees” and say the motto for this new phase of their life is il dolce far niente—the sweetness of doing nothing.» —“Retired at 40″ by Donna Rosato CNNMoney Feb. 1, 2008.
