Grammatically Incomplete Expressions

The sentence within which an ellipsis occurs should be a grammatically complete expression. However, ellipses and no period may be used at the end of a sentence fragment to indicate that it is purposely grammatically incomplete.

Complete the sentence “When I retire, I plan to …” in 20 words or less.
