DAILY PROMPT: Kick It
What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?
Bucket lists are for wimps. It is a good excuse to avoid doing something while you wait for the perfect time that probably never will arrive. My alternative is to live as fully as possible NOW. Charlie has the right attitude. Everyday is filled with purpose and selfish abandonment to whatever he wants. Morning, time to go outside, but first lets beg for the morning milk. Check the boundaries, make sure no birds or mice are carelessly transgressing into his zone. Midday, let’s check the sink and trash cans for some food. Nothing, oh well, Kibble will do. Afternoon, time for a nap. The best naps are when he can take over Elly’s bed. If you asked Charlie about a bucket list it might go like this
- Hot Blanket
- Hot dog rescued from the sink
- Catching a bird, a mouse, a lizard, anything
- Chicken rescued from the dog
- Clean Litter box
- Nap in the sun
- Catching a fish from the tank
So you might say that today, Charlie did accomplish a bucket list item. Afternoon nap on the dog bed. You have to agree he looks happy.
