WaPo No. 1 - To Re-Pot oneself

I read the Washington Post newspaper haphazardly; one day it may be the Style section, the next day it may be the Business section. No rhyme or reason; whatever headline might catch my fancy at the moment. On January 9, going through the Metro section I dawdled on the Obituaries and came across this interesting quote from the remaining spouse;

"His wife of 52 years, Reba Watson Heyman .... added ..... every eight years he wanted to re-pot himself."

Re-pot himself .... what a wonderful term for someone who takes another direction in life, someone unpredictable, someone who takes up another interest, another career.
