THINGS THAT DIDN’T MAKE MY BUCKET LIST

24Jun2019

I don’t plan to visit Flint, Michigan.
I’m not going to senior hockey camp.
I will avoid poker games with people who are armed.
I don’t see any value in studying Esperanto.

I don’t plan to spend a year in Antarctica.
I’m not going to do any storm chasing.
I will avoid going on any program that resembles the Jerry Springer Show.
I don’t see any value in learning COBOL.

I don’t plan to bungee jump in the nude.
I’m not going to bungee jump fully clothed.
I will avoid any group tours that feature bungee jumping.
I don’t see any value in preparing for bungee jumping, since I’m never doing it.

I guess I’m just not any fun, am I?
