Okay. I'm not turning 29. The number is considerably more than that, but I decided a few years ago that I would celebrate the age I feel, not the age I actually am. This, by the way is something only people over a certain age do. I've never met an 24 year old who wished they were turning 21 again.
Anywhoo. Since I'm on the cusp of a birthday ending in a 0, I decided it's time to put together a bucket list. But, this isn't the I'm old now and so I need to make a list of things to do before I die kind of list. Morgan Freeman and I will not be jumping out of a plane together. Unless he finds this blog post and decides that would be fun. I'm totally up for it Mr. Freeman. Would you read to me at the same time?
Where was I? Oh, right. My bucket list is more like an I'm almost going to be an age that ends in a zero and have things I want to accomplish kind of list.
So, I'm compiling a Single Year Bucket List. No, it is not the same thing as a New Year's Resolution. For one thing, it's June.
Do you want to know what's #1 on my list?
1. Drink a shot.
Beloved Husband has never been drunk. Or so he claims. We've been together since he was 20 and I can honestly say I've never seen him drunk, but we aren't together 24/7.... He does not share in my virgin shot excitement.
It's fine though, because I did enough drinking for the both of us in my early 20s (only a mere eight years ago *wink*). Still, NEVER drank a shot.
I even own a shot glass. How stupid is it that I own a shot glass, but have never drank a shot? Kind of like living on a golf course and not knowing how to golf...wait, I'm doing that too.
You would not believe how many people want to come to my shot party. They all have an opinion about what kind of shot I should partake in as well. It's a thing now in my little corner of the world. Apparently, after the wanton swallowing of an 1.5 ounces of liquor (I had to Google that), people think hijinks will ensue.
Curious about what else is on the list? It's much less exciting.
2. Finish two more books. (That's six months per book starting tomorrow people.)
3. Actually query a novel. (Oh yes, I've written them, I just don't have anything worthy of querying yet).
4. Lose weight. I'm shooting for 52 pounds. A pound a week starting Wednesday (a girl has got to have cake on her birthday).
5. Figure out who my dream agent is.
Item #1 might be able to help me accomplish the rest of the list (except maybe #4, because of the calories yaknow).
What would you put on your one year bucket list? Skydiving (I would love to, but maybe next year) or maybe getting a tattoo (I want one but I'm scairt).
And more importantly, what kind of shot should I get?
