So you've reached that time of your life when you start thinking about your bucket list or you heard some friends talking about theirs and decided it's time for you to do the same. First off -- for those who don't know, a bucket list is a list of things to do before you kick the bucket, meet-your-maker, check-out, bite-the-big-one, croak, flat-line -- ah, you know -- die. Sure, many people have a bucket list with the same old standard activities -- skydiving, bungee jumping, running with the bulls, see other countries -- boring, boring, boring. Think outside the box. What are some outrageous things you would love for your kids, grandkids or great-grandkids to say you did. What is something that would make you stand out to the world or at least your own little world. Remember bucket list guidelines require you to keep it legal (not true, but you should. There really are no guidelines; it's all up to you.)
Consider some, most or all of the following options:
Bubble Wrap - Seriously Who Doesn't Love This Stuff?
Roll down hill wrapped in bubble wrap. This is an especially great idea for those who love the snapping-popping sound of bubble wrap. Do not cover your face, nose or mouth with bubble wrap or the bucket part of the list will come to fruition quicker than you would expect.
Ponder the Possibilities and Impossibilities While Your're At It
Do the impossible. Figure out what was meant by this saying and then do it. Imagine future generations on the playground giving the snotty retort "oh yeah, well my Grandpa/ma did the impossible, so there". What could be a better legacy. Warning -- doing the impossible may land you with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. Choose the impossible wisely -- whatever that may mean.
Answer Age Old Questions
Move to a farm and interrogate the chicken to find out why the chicken crossed the road. Again, when someone says "why did the chicken cross the road?" you will know. No water-boarding allowed when interrogating chickens. Imagine the smug look on the face of your descendants when they know the answer.
Shower in the rain. Seriously, why haven't more people done this? Picture this -- it's raining outside and you walk into the bathroom and turn on the shower. Look outside the shower is already on! Bring soap, loofah, washcloths, shampoo and conditioner outside with you. Leave the towel in a dry spot. Do not plug in blower dryers, curling irons or any other electric devices in while showering in the rain. When you appear in court on the indecent exposure charge -- play the old "I am trying to go green - card".
Dance like There is No Tomorrow (because there may not be one)
Start a conga line at a funeral. Come on those people need some cheering up! For the court appearance -- tell the judge it takes more muscles to frown than smile so you were just trying to help.
Last, but certainly not least:
6. WORLD DOMINATION -- With this wish fulfilled, anything is possible 'nuff said.
