.Which is the best way to express the following sentence in English? I also ask your help for the second sentence in subjunctive present. Is it OK?
The person speaking is an aged man who has turned 80 and very active :
1) "I don't want to hear about retirement. The day I am / have retired will be the day I am dead.
2) "I don't want to hear talk about retirement. The day I am retired will be the day I am dead.
Perhaps is there any other way to say the same and in a more suitable and English-sounding way?
Thanks a lot
