Tiggerlane our host this week, was inspired of the movie "The bucket list" and wants me to make a list of things I want to do before I die and you too of course.
Now that is very difficult for me ! I even couldn't make a list of what I want tomorrow, or the next week and now I should think for maybe 5, 10, 20 or 30 years ? 30 maybe is a little long then I would be 95 but on the other hand why not. You see it is very difficult. And then, if I don't die at all ? Science could develop to make us all live until 200 or more ? I would have done a list for nothing. And what should I write if I decide to get deepfreezed and wake up in 120 years ? How can I know what I would like then ? Doing a cruise to the Northpole which I would have put today on my list, could be impossible then, if the globe becomes square.
And flying to South America and see what the Spanishs have left of the Incas will probably be as quick as going by bus downtown and is not worthwhile anymore to be called a wish. And if we all have to imigrate to the moon, what would I wish then ? Going on a trip to earth ?
Anyway I am a "no list" person, not before I die and not while I live. I don't even do a "to do" list or a shopping list, (I always forget it on the kitchen table) and I don't do a wish list for Christmas or a wish list for my birthday. I have not even prepared my funerals with a list of wishes I have, like Elvis and Freddy Mercury watching my coffin and singing a song, or what would be the flowers on my coffin. It also could be that there are no flowers anymore and they have to put something else...
So I am sorry for those who expected a long wish list from me apparently I don't have any, I really raked my brain, but I am perfectly happy without.
