The Bucket List

Author: Maggie Washo

I’m not sure what prompted this thought process; perhaps it was the swine flu. But I was thinking about what would be on my bucket list and decided I should come up with one. Creating the list is the first step, right? As my dad used to say, “It’s good to have goals.” Although that was often a wise-ass comment in reference to my proclamation that I was going to be rich and famous (or richly infamous?).

But I digress.

The List:

1.) Discover the meaning of life and come to terms with it.
2.) Adopt a Chinese baby.
3.) Add to the happiness of those around me—whether it is my best friends or a chance encounter with a stranger.
4.) See Madonna in concert one more time.
5.) Breathe. Relax. Repeat.
6.) Stay in a passionate and healthy relationship for more than five minutes.
7.) Explore Italy.
8.) Sustain and grow a successful business.
9.) Keep Woody from biting anyone else for the rest of HIS life.
10.) Trust someone implicitly.
11.) Tame the beast within.

Wish me luck.
