Bucket List

Yup, usual position minus the coffee plus a Diet Coke waiting for the drugs to kick in.  Damn – mornings are really difficult.  All dressed and ready to go spend my day with Buddy.  And to be honest I really don’t feel like going.  I am sure I will snap out of it as the day goes on but right now I would just like to curl up with my blanket and chill out.

I have learned a lot about myself over the years and having a bucket list.

I learned that if I like something I will keep doing it – I actually went for my class A skydiving license but never completed the necessary jumps.  It is an expensive sport to learn.

I have learned I am about as graceful as an elephant.  I just don’t have what it takes to dance, ski or do anything that requires balance and gracefulness.  I spent more time on my ass than the skis and I looked like a complete idiot dancing.

I have learned I like just about anything that gives me an adrenaline rush.

I have learned that you need a lot of money if you are going to do the things on a bucket list.

  1. I like the cowboy thing…. Yummy
    I saw a license plate once that said “save a horse, ride a cowboy instead.” I thought I would never stop laughing. Somehow, that resonated with me….
