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.

From a time in the distant past

I meant to do this earlier, but completely forgot.

The WordPress Daily Prompt was: Going Obsolete

Of all the technologies that have gone extinct in your lifetime, which one do you miss the most?

It’s kind of technology or rather it was in my day and I’ll be damned if we didn’t have fun with it. Some of us could barely draw a stick figure with it while others could draw entire neighborhoods to include people, dogs, and the proverbial white picket fence.  We’d spin those white knobs on either side of the screen left, right then left again and pick up the whole damn thing and shake when we made a mistake or were done with our ‘masterpiece.’

What the hell are you talking about you might be asking?

Well, wait for it. Wait for it.
