A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

The Other Bucket List

The list of things that you never want to do. the things you would avoid at all costs. Mine is different to yours of course, I hope. The   list is be about things that I have no personal interest in participating in as “things” They hold no allure, fascination or attraction to me, no challenge or reward appears offered for achieving participation. Call me a curmudgeon. There is a real bucket list of course. I’ll start on that next when I figure out what it is that I don’t want to do.

  1. Scuba Diving.
  2. One of those one hour trial lesson in a light aircraft.
  3. Bungy Jumping – possibly the lamest of all the adventure / thrill activities.
  4. Get a tattoo.
  5. Manicure / Pedicure / Massage.
  6. Swim with sharks – possibly the 2nd lamest of all the adventure / thrill activities.
  7. Tandem parachutes – I’ve done single jump  and it’s much much scarier.
  8. Camping holiday.
  9. Have a “hot lap” in a Ferrari or Lamborghini or pretty much any car really – going fast as a passenger – *gosh*.
  10. Hot Air Ballooning
  11. Own a restaurant that I had to work in – what kind of madness is a 7 day a weeks 14 hour a day job?
  12. Own a pub that I had to work in. – what kind of madness is a 7 day a weeks 14 hour a day job?
  13. Take a holiday on a Cruise Liner – gak!!
  14. Skiing
  15. Appear on a TV game show as a contestant

    Hahaha fantastic. I have to say I agree with most of these. Particularly skiing. I’ve always thought swimming with dolphins was one of those things that is so much better in theory. I’ve swum with some dolphins out by Wellington Airport and it was fucking terrifying. They’re actually quite scary.

    Anyway, an “other” bucket list is way more interesting to read than a bucket list. Those bucket lists are insufferable. They’re either things people will never be able to do, or the standards are depressingly low “have fish and chips on the beach” etc.
