My Bucket List in Reverse

Wow, I am so glad I stumbled on Mama Kat’s Pretty Much World Famous Writer’s Workshop.  It’s kinda fun to do something different.  So this week, I am choosing the prompt:  Create a reverse bucket list that names the top ten things you never want to do. (Inspired by The Hairpin).

Holy cow…when I picked this prompt I thought “easy pease!”.  Yeah, I was so very wrong; this was hard.

#10:  Complete a triathlon:  Why would anyone want to do that to themselves?  I think I will be just fine in life without doing one of those.

#9:  Watch the complete series of Star Wars, Twilight or the Godfather:  Why do people seem so shocked when you haven’t seen all of those movies?  Get over it people!

#8:  See the Ball Drop in Times Square:  Every time I see that crowd on New Year’s Eve, all I can think about is–where do you go to the bathroom?

#7:  Learn to dive:  I think I am a bit claustrophobic, and the thought of being at the bottom of the ocean with a tank on my back and a think shoved in my mouth gives me the willies.  Don’t need to do that!

#6:  Learn to Fly:  I hate to fly, hate hate hate!  While other people may believe I will feel more in control and comfortable if I am flying the plane myself; I don’t buy it.

#5:  Hike the Appalachian Trail:  I had this old ex-boyfriend who really wanted to do this.  I am not sure what part of it seems appealing.  Hiking all day, no bathrooms, no hot shower, no wine, no hot coffee, no internet.  No way, not for me.

#4:  Skydive or Bungee Jump:  In a world of so many things that can go wrong, why laugh in the face of fate?  Just doesn’t seem safe to me, why risk it?

#3:  Live in a cold place:  I live in Florida, and yes the summers are brutally hot and humid; and the hurricanes aren’t fun either.  But I get cold when it gets in the 60’s.  I have no desire to shovel snow.  I don’t need a White Christmas to feel merry.  I am just fine with my palm trees and sand!

#2:  Get married again:  I know I probably said I would never get married before I got married, but there is really no reason for me to ever get married again.  I am not having any more kids so I don’t really need to be married.  I just need to be loved!  Although, I do appreciate fine jewelry!

#1:  Die:  Yeah, somehow I don’t think I will be able to keep from doing this one.  But man it scares the ever-living shit out of me and I just really don’t want it to happen.

  1. Great list! I always wonder that about Times Square on New Year’s Eve too. You couldn’t pay me to be stuck in that crowd, especially not in the middle of winter with drunk people everywhere.
