I was listening to the radio the other day and the conversation was somehow related to somebody’s “Bucket List.” Do you know the Bucket List? That list of stuff people want to get done before they “kick the bucket.” You know, before they die.
I call it baloney because that is just what it is to me. Perhaps this is because I have lived a full and exciting life. I have done what I wanted, when I wanted and where I wanted.
I have traveled to the places I have wanted to, I have seen the sights I have wanted to see. I have done all the stupid things that I have ever wanted to do. What more could I want to do or see?
Perhaps, just perhaps, I would like to go on a cruise ship to Alaska. Or go see a lion in its natural habitat wherever that is.
But other than that? What is there? I have done what I wanted. Except for one thing. And what is that one thing?
See my kids grow up and be safe and perfect and live their lives to the fullest just like I have done. That is the only thing that I want to do or see before I kick the bucket. But that is it.
