To Do

Life, as we know, is short.  Seventy-some years if you are lucky, healthy and able to avoid speeding trains.  We live as long as we can, and then it is over.  The key is to live as well as we can for as long as we can.  I don't expect to go soon, but someday I will.  Before I go, though, there are a few simple things I would like to do.

1.  I would like to see the sunrise over the pyramids on the Giza Plateau.

2. I would like to discover a new comet and name it after my daughter.

3. I would like to write and publish a novel, a story of a young boy, raised by wolves, who fights  Sasquatch to the death in an alien cage match.

4. I would like to yell "fire" in a crowded theater, after having actually lit a fire in the crowded theater.  And perhaps after having barred the doors shut.

5. I would like to run naked, outside, in the fresh air, on a Monday morning, through rush hour traffic, with a chain saw.

6. I would like to go bow hunting, in the forrest, for humans.

7. I would like to jump out of a plane, with a stewardess, against her will.

8. I would want to conquer my fear of licking brass handrails in public train stations.

9. And finally, before I leave this world, I would like to take the perfect photo, of a beautiful flower, sticking out of Newt Gingrich's ass, as he gives a nude oil massage to Donald Trump, on Rush Limbaugh's backyard hammock.

Death Wish
1 oz Bacardi 151
1 oz Boodles Gin

1/4 oz Jagermeister
1 tsp Grenadine 
Build in a tall shooter, pour Grenadine in last, over the top.  


  1. You used to be able to make Alchemy requests on Etsy, and an artisan could have drawn or painted or even professionally photoshopped that very image. And then you could have photographed it as proof you commissioned it. Just saying.

  2. #2 is by far the best and shows you may actually have a heart.

    If you actually complete 3-9 of your 'bucket list' please share pics, especially 8 and 9....


Be compelling.
