The Anti-Bucket List

As I was going through the WordPress Daily Prompt list, I happened upon this one – Kick the Bucket. I already have a Buck List, but I think it kind of helps to let folks what you’re not going to do. You know, so they don’t ask you to do it.

  1. Attempt to sleep in a coffin to overcome my fear of enclosed spaces. I already know I can’t do it. I have to have a valium or two for an MRI
  2. Will not walk on hot coals. Those that know me know why
  3. Bungee Jumping. There’s something about hurling oneself off a bridge with a rubber band attached to your ankles that’s just not very appealing.
  4. Attend Mardi Gras. Well, maybe just the parade, but after that I’m high tailing it out of there
  5. Chase a tornado. Enough said.
  6. Be a willing participant in a magic trick. It’d be just my luck I get sawed in half and the magician can’t remember what to say or do to put me back together. Irrational fear? I think not.
  7. Get a nose ring, nipple ring, tongue ring, you get the picture. I remember all to well the day I got my ears pierced. I wanted to take that ear piercing gun and . . . Well, violence never solves anything.

This is my Anti-Bucket list thus far. I’m pretty sure there are more things I won’t do, but I haven’t had my morning cup of Joe yet and it’s nearly noon.

WordPress in its infinite wisdom has come with an eBook, 365 Writing Prompts: A Prompt to Get You Writing Each and Every Day of the Year.  There are some prompts I don’t think I’ll have much to say if anything and others that may open the proverbial Pandora’s Box.

So, let’s see I didn’t do January 1st or 2nd for a couple of reasons.  On January 1st, I had the pleasure of recovering from surgery I had on the 31st, so I was pretty doped up and Continue reading
