Bucket Listing Part 3 – The Final Bucket

20 Apr

According to all the so-called, self-proclaimed, armchair “experts” who read my blog, the term “bucket list” comes from the english-language expression “to kick the bucket”. For those of you whom have never heard this before, it means “to die” or just “die”.

In a previous post I mentioned that I have a bucket list-type list. What I failed to say was that mine is called my “pre-death list”. I named it this so my readers don’t need to have detailed knowledge of obscure english-language idioms to understand what I’m writing about.

Anyway, enough talking about lists, it’s time to list the list.

Jason’s Pre-Death List

  • Cook a full-on turkey dinner meal for either Christmas or Thanksgiving including various pies for dessert
  • Visit Nordkapp
  • Visit Antarctica
  • See the Northern Lights (full-on)
  • Sleep outside in the full-on winter (Canadian or Finnish, none of those fake winters that are found in many parts of the world)
  • Desert safari (Sahara or Gobi)
  • Dessert safari (cheesecakes or pies)
  • Get my karate black belt 
  • Solve the Keith Haring Double Retrospect
  • Complete all the items on my pre-death list
  • Experience the Trans-Siberian (orchestra and railway) – not at the same time, bonus if
  • Paint a self-portrait
  • Build a house
  • Build a better house
Guess which will be the first item crossed off the list!

    Deserted in the desert while having dessert? Herrow ESL pronunciation nightmare!
