You’re kidding, right?
Well, the Wall Street Journal has a few quirky suggestions or ideas for our Bucket Lists that may go out of our comfort zones.
Since this is the third week of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I have decided to continue this series and hope it gives you a few laughs about bucket list examples.
Below is the The Boomer Explorer series on 12 Things to do before you die:
- When you replace your kitchen appliances, resist the intense peer pressure to buy stainless steel ones. Somebody’s got to take the lead.
- Adopt a fawn, as Audrey Hepburn did.
- Attempt to skip double-Dutch.
- Have a photo of you and your family made into a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle and assemble it together. Don’t over think the psychological subtext of the tear-down.
- If at all possible, have a house built to your specifications, tower toom and all.
- Make peace with your ex.
- Do something you are petrified of doing.
- Swim with the dinosaurs, after collaborating with Elon Musk to build an ingenious, battery-powered time-travel machine.
- Ask a friend to scare you thoroughly when you’ll least expect it. Forgive the friend within 5 years.
- Attempt a cartwheel. To avoid injury, try landing on a 5-inch thick cushioned matt.
- Stop by your lonely-seeming neighbor’s place and say “hello.”
- Reintroduce yourself to the comfort that is corduroy.
And there, you have it. I’m having such a great time reflecting and reporting some of the Journal’s quirky Bucket List ideas.
So, join the dialogue and let us know some of your ideas, or add to the Journal’s quirky and fun list.
As always, I am…the traveling Boomer Explorer.
