The Bucket List of S

Many people ask me about what I want to do in my life.  As I am sure many of you are also asked.  About a month ago I watched a movie called The Bucket List, which most have probably seen.  It was definitly a "B" movie, but it got my friend Preston (PostCard on TB) and me thinking as to what we would write on our own Bucket List.  The idea anamored us enough to start writing our own.  I set the stipulation that it could only be 50 items or less due to the fact if you get much higher then you have the possibility to over fluff it.  Below is a draft of mine that I am working on.  I post it to maybe inspire others to look at their lives and think about what is important to them.  For most of those who read my stuff, this is a bit of a digression off the norm.  Usually my stuff is funny, crazy stories.  I'll get back to those when I write about my adventures in Mexico.  So with out further ado...

Yes... Of course I want a family some day. And yes, I am also curious where that cheesiness came from. Are you watching a chick flick over there.
