I’m sure we all have made a bucket list at one point or another. You know, that list of those things we want to do or accomplish before we die. I have a family bucket list of things I want my children to experience with me before they get too grown to do things with mommy. I am teetering on the edge as my son and daughter just turned 18 and 14 years old respectively. This saddens me every time I say their ages. Time surely does fly.
Today’s writing prompt is all about the opposite of that, the anti–bucket list or in other words, Kick the bucket. It consists of those things that you would never, not ever do, go or want to experience. So I’m sitting here trying to think of ways I would “Kick the Bucket”. I have come up with these:
- Sky dive, base jump or parasail (you could probably add hot air ballooning as well)
- Eat chitterlings
- Work at a meat processing plant (I’ve seen the videos and my eyes……)
- Ride a roller coaster
- Give up snacking (as long as there are cookies in this world…)
- Eat really exotic foods
- Commit a crime (unless it was self-defense or something)
As you can tell, I’m not very adventurous at all but I am 100% okay with that. Really I am. 🙂 I’m sure that there are several other things that I could add to this list if given more time to think about it. But since these were what came to mind, they were probably at the top of my list.
Now I can’t write an anti-bucket list without letting you know what is on my 5-year-old personal bucket list. I have a very short bucket list that I created maybe five years ago which includes (in no particular order); getting married, purchasing a home, traveling to Bora Bora, Brazil, Greece and Costa Rica and lastly seeing and experiencing clear blue ocean water. I’ve got two down and two to go. My family bucket list is way more comprehensive and the one I really go by.
What’s on your anti-bucket list?
Live and love in positivity,
