Second thing, completely unrelated is that there are a wide variety of events out there geared at getting peoples rocks off in a entirely different way than what Cinemax is currently presenting. Most of these are completely insane but so damn cool! Now try to follow me on my thought process and I swear I'm going somewhere with this.
As I continued to flip though the channels as my eyelids got heavier I ran across the movie "Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. A pretty solid "drama-dy" (part drama part comedy) about a couple of men faced with death due to different types of cancer who decide to make a wish list of all the things they wanted to ever do in life if they had all the money in the world. Just so happened the character played by Nicholson was a multimillionaire complete with private jets and top notch healthcare and he finds a kindred spirit in Freeman's character. So off they go on this journey to do all the things on their "bucket lists." With all that said I really should have found a job writing Cliffs Notes.
So as the light in the room continues to close I couldn't help but think of some things that have been and would be on my very own bucket list. This is not going to be anything mushy and sentimental either like dancing with my late grandfather or ridiculous like meeting Jesus. Let's face it I plan to do all that someday anyway but I am not so certain about the warmth of my reception to the later. This is just a bunch of cool stuff if you will that everyone should try to do at least once in their life. Here starts another one of my ever famous lists.
