I decided a few months back that I needed a Bucket List. Hell, if Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson can have one, so can I. Anyone else got one? Or if not a formal list, at least some idea of things you would like to do or accomplish before you die?
When I decided to do my Bucket List, a friend of mine told me I couldn't put down things like "see my children get married", "live long enough to pay off the mortgage on my house", "NOT live long enough to put another new roof on my house", etc.
WOW...this was going to be hard. She informed me that my list should be dreams of mine. Possibly even frivolous dreams. Things that pertained to me and me only. Selfish items. Oh God. I knew I was out of my element then. I've lived for my kids and the rest of my family for so long I have somehow forgotten a lot of dreams.
But determined to have a Bucket List, I persevered. And I am going to share maybe three items with you today. There are some that ended up being a bit too private. I know you'll understand if I don't reveal EVERYTHING. lol
Number one on my list? Get a tattoo. Ha! No sooner said than done. I was at Myrtle Beach this summer, drank four glasses of wine and got a tattoo. A small butterfly on the outer side of my right leg just above the ankle. It's turquoise, purple, and pink. And I am planning to get some honeysuckle vine added to it. I want it to look as though the butterfly is sitting on one of the blossoms.
The guys in the tat shop were great. All of them pierced out the ying yang. And all of them big dudes that looked like they were headed to a Hell's Angels convention too. But really sweet. There are two tat shops here in town. Both good. But I'm going back to Myrtle Beach and see those guys again this summer. It was a great experience. A bit painful, but great anyway.
Next up? Tell THAT bitch off. Yeah, there was someone I'd been pissed off with for years, and I finally told her off. Trust me, she deserved it. I know, I know, fifteen years after the fact is a bit much, but hell, there were other forces at work then, and I couldn't tell her what I thought. So she got it. With both barrels. And I must say, she took it well. Probably shocked I even recognized her old scraggly, ugly looking ass. Yeah, I said it. She's three years younger than me and I LOOK BETTER. LMAO...and she knew it too. It was obvious. Hell, I looked ten years younger. She did not age well at all. Yeah, I'm rambling a bit, but I want you to understand the utter enjoyment I got out of telling her off. And NO, it was not over a man. On her BEST day she couldn't take one from me. lol It was over money. Yeah, money. Long story, but she screwed me over pretty badly. I could have sued, but like I said, other forces were at work that stopped me. I'll never be loyal to anyone again when money is at stake.
So I only have two items crossed off on my list of fourteen. My friend also told me that a Bucket List usually maxed out at twenty and was almost always ten. I'm a fourteen. I don't know how my friend knows all these things, but she does.
Want one more? Probably not, but I'm blogging and I only do it once a month here so I'm going to keep the blogging floor a little longer and share another item on my Bucket List.
To get laid one more time by a man who knows how to do it. Now, you might say, "how difficult is that?" Well, it is. Not every man knows what the hell they are doing. At least not with me. You know that thing about it takes twenty minutes to rev a woman up and prepare her for the Big O? Well, most of them don't wear a watch. And hells bells I got really tired of the whole thing because of the lack of emotion. I'm stuck in a time warp, been reading too much romance I guess. I mean seriously, would it kill a guy to start a fire in the fireplace? Don't answer that. It was a double entendre. LMAO.
Okay, well that is all I am sharing with my Bucket List. The rest of it is pretty personal. So now you're thinking, "WOW, she tells us she needs to get laid and by somebody who knows how and the rest of her list is personal!" UHHHHH YEAH, pretty much.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas surrounded by love and filled with lots of memories. It's those memories that get you through life.
Hugs to all...and to all... a good night!
