My Bucket List

I have to admit that the first time I heard the term “bucket list” I was totally confused.

…and ever since that whole “I’m on a boat” fiasco I did NOT want to ask Uncle Google what it meant.

So, I waited.

Finally, a movie came out called “The Bucket List” and it had two of my favorite actors, Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, in it.

Of course, me being me, I totally forgot about the movie almost as soon as it opened so I never saw it on the big screen.

I did, however, finally catch it on cable one night…and before we go further, *spoiler alert*…if you haven’t seen it and intend to, stop reading right now.

Stop it.


Sigh…fine, but don’t blame me for ruining the movie for you.

I got all choked up when Morgan Freeman’s character died, and thought what a wonderful time he had in his last few months on Earth.

I was still bummed about the movie when I decided to write my own bucket list.

So, here it is:

1) Small, blue, holds about a gallon of water.  Very handy for washing windows.

2) Large, white with a metal handle.  I have two of them…no idea where they came from.  I suspect they may have housed pickles at one point.

3) A one hundred year old wooden bucket I got at a flea market.  It has an old rope handle and sits by my front door holding umbrellas.  Truthfully, I think if I put water in this one I wouldn’t make it from the sink before it all leaked out the bottom.

That’s it.  I don’t have any other buckets, but you know someday I just might.  I’m kinda waiting to invest in this two-gallon plastic green number I’ve seen at the store until I’m more sure of where the economy is headed.
