In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Kick the Bucket.”

What are the top items on your anti-bucket list — those things you never, ever want to do, places you never want to visit, books you never want to read, etc.?

Well, before I retired and before the movie, “The Bucket List”, I had a top ten lists and over the years I divided the lists into the most urgent items I wish to conquer before I die.

As I approach my fifth year of retirement, I have accomplished two or three items a year, however, one aspect of my list that probably will never change, and they are cliff diving, skydiving, and bungee jumping.

These last three listed items are further down on my list because the chance of death is instant, with no recovery.

I have an adventurous soul, so there isn’t too many experiences I will pass on, or places I not travel to visit, except, I will never eat bugs unless sautéed and flavored in a sweet and sour sauce, but the anti-bucket list item is, I will never visit or tour North Korea.

  1. I agree no bungee jumping, no sky diving definitely no cliff diving. I’m afraid of hieghts. I would have like to surf but that is way down my list unless I come back in another life. I never thought about my bucket list. Maybe I should.

  2. Oh yes by all means, start the list, along with a journal, to track your progress of events. Examining the past provides incredible insight and desires into the future. Hey thanks for the comments!
