Bucket List

In my opinion, everyone should have a Bucket List…according to Urban Dictionary, a Bucket List is “a list of things to do before you die. Comes from the term ‘kicked the bucket.'”

  1. You better hurry to see a space shuttle launch; there’s only 2 or so left before they scrap the program. You and I have a lot of similarities in our lists. This year I’m working on SCUBA diving and Hot Air Balloon Ride. Good luck on your goals!
