I'm composing a bucket list.
I began with ten items. However, after a weekend of (increasingly unfamiliar) rational reflection, the list has been whittled down to three.
The other seven, it turns out, were seductively veiled death wishes.
For example, I realize now that # 5 -- building a cobra-powered time machine -- might contain certain design flaws. Ditto # 8: having tea with Kim Jong il and beating his wrinkled ass at chess.
#3 still has possibilities... I mean, it's not inconceivable that I might discover the Holy Grail while on holiday in the Galapagos.
Yeah. Let's keep that one at the top of the list.
