Reverse Bucket List

I love Mama Kat not in a criminal, stalker way but more in a "she's so cool I want to grow up to be her" kind of way. Thanks to her for yet another fantastic writing prompt.

And without further ado, may I present my reverse bucket list?

1. Unless I truly lost my mind and succumb to insanity I will NOT own a cat. For all you "cat people" reading this-I am not a hater I am simply not  crazy cat lady a cat person. Think of it this way...there are more cats for you.

2. Pull a tooth belonging to another person. I don't care how loose it is or if it belongs to one of my adorable, charming children..I AIN'T PULLIN' IT!

3. Never going to go to a shooting range. Nor will I ever use a gun. I will never even hold a gun. I have my reasons.

4. Give a pedicure. Feet repulse me..except for baby feet. Something about touching and feet makes me want to hurl. I require liquid courage prior to getting a pedicure.

5. I don't want to own a professional football team. Baseball or basketball teams I might consider.

6. I don't want to ever get my chakras aligned. I don't even know where my chakras are but I don't want people fondling them.

7. Never will I go firewalking. I don't like to go barefoot. I don't like the smell of charred skin.

8. I don't want to ride the world's largest ferris wheel...the whole afraid of heights thing again.

9. Be featured on a Girls Gone Wild video. Trust me you don't want me featured either. And I'm pretty sure 40 something is no longer considered a girl.

10. Learn to quilt. I had a bad quilting experience in fourth grade. Enough said.

ha! We have much in common. I'm afraid of heights too (so is my husband, so my kids will miss out on adventures I guess). My kids and husband want a cat, but I don't want any more living things in this house. I am so grossed out by teeth. My kids can show me a loose tooth once and that's it. And Husband is in charge of removal.

Thanks for reading my blog today!

9. Be featured on a Girls Gone Wild video.

HAHAHA!! Girl, you and me both!

But I'd be willing to bet, those "girls" could learn a thing or two from us!

And I mean that in a totally non-creepy way.

#6 made me laugh out loud. My husband looked at me like I was crazy. But I know he'd understand - he thinks chakras sounds like a dirty word lol

My biggest fear is getting stuck at the top...I can do roller coasters because they are fast...though if the line is too high I have issues with it.

Robbie K said...

Glad we have a lot in common! :) My husband is NOT afraid of heights and has no idea what I experience. Lucky for me one of my very good friends was a dental hygienest and pulled many of my kiddos teeth. too bad she moved!

Robbie K said...

I can do baby feet and that's about it. I don't even like to go barefoot.

Robbie K said...

lol...yeah we could teach those "girls" something!

I actually had to google what chakras sounds very dirty to me too!
