FUN MONDAY





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.

Blue bloods don't have to make lists like us ordinary folks. :)

My Fun Monday is posted. I had a good time this week, voicing my opinions on Fun Monday.
Happy week to you.

Lucky you, I am envious of folk who are so content with their lot that they don't wish for anything.

Lil Mouse said...

maybe you should write a list of the things you HAVE done that you're proud of that would have been on your list? or is that too much like making a list? i am rooting for that to be NEXT week's adventure!

Robocop said...

Perhaps the thing to do while you are still on the earth is to make a list**LOL** Just kidding. Great post.

Pamela said...

I like Robocops idea.

You do so many fun things - that your list would get crossed off as fast as you made it

Sandy said...

I love the cryogenic cartoon!

Faye said...

Gattina! So you're the non-conformist in the crowd? Love your take--if you don't need a list, don't make a list. But what happens when you forget to pick up your must have cereal and have to make do? Just hate that!

Karmyn R said...

Ah, to be content enough to not make a list and just be where life throws you - I'm a tad jealous.

But - I do like Robocop's suggestion for it is pretty funny!

That was good Fun Monday post!

Tiggerlane said...

Oddly enough - I always secretly wished Freddy Mercury was my long-lost brother. Must have been the buck-teeth I had as a kid. LOVE his music. Great take on the assignment - thanks for participating!

Michelle said...

Fun post!!! Love the dog cartoon!!

Linda said...

You know, I totally thought that same thing. Even though I am a list person, I struggled with this... well, except I totally would like Freddy Mercury to sing at my funeral too!

I feel honored that a blue blood like you would even 'think' of making a post for us peasants, little own a list :o) I think your Fun Monday is great, but the story above this was SO interesting!
