I have an awesome prize for the first person who tells me what song the title of this post is from. GO!
Yesterday Diana and I were discussing the abundance of 'summer bucket lists' floating around Pinterest these days.
They're fun and all, but we have some serious problems with most of them. First of all, they have like twelve thousand items. Clearly they are meant for people who have twelve thousand free days of summer...which is incidentally not us, since we have the exact same amount of free hours during the summer as we do the rest of the year. So I don't need that many new things to do. You're killing me, Bucket List. Secondly, most of them are for people with kids. Or people who ARE kids. Because let's talk about how creepy it would be if I went and showed up at a splash pad by myself. WOOOO!!!! Water shooting up out of the ground!!! I'm losing my miiiiind!!!!!!
Also, I do not want to make a robot (???? Nor would I want to make one if I were a kid or if I had a kid or EVER, really. Robots are for scientists. Not people like me.) or catch a frog or throw water balloons (seriously, who's gonna clean up all those tiny pieces of plastic balloon bits when we're done? Plus water balloon fights always result in tons of ant bites. Not sure how that happens, but it's a guarantee) or basically do anything except drink rum-based beverages while I work on my tan by the pool. That's what summer is for.
But then, it's good to make goals, to make a point of doing fun things that aren't just sitting by a pool...you know, like training for a triathlon! Or painting the living room! Obviously I'm all about trying new things. Just not the things I've seen on most of these 'bucket lists.'
Which is why Diana and I did the only logical thing. We made our own bucket list. Our bucket list for people like us. People who are semi-old, who do not have kids (or even a spouse, necessarily) to base our activities around, who spend most of their summer hours WORKING, and who do not have unlimited money. The best Summer Bucket List Ever.
And then we made it pretty.
Amazing, right? It took us almost 20 whole minutes to think of the perfect balance of 'okay, what are things we'd probably do anyway? we need easy things to check off...' items plus 'what are things that would be FUN but not TOO hard to work in?' plus 'must think of something that isn't related to food' goals. I know. We are super dedicated. And then Diana whipped up the little graphic after work and...voila! The perfect List. You are welcome. Feel free to join us in our ambitious endeavors, and look!!!- we even made three blank boxes so you can make your OWN goals! We are nothing if not givers. Truly.
Also, we definitely did not start off by aiming for 20 new beers. Definitely not. That would make us look totally un-classy when we are clearly super classy (please see: gray chevron background, bright turquoise and green color scheme). But I am saying that if anyone sees any Adult Beverage Bucket Lists floating around, I know someone who might be interested. A friend of a friend. Yep.
It's summer, yall. Even for us 'working girls' (Diana says that phrase has bad connotations? I don't get it...), it's an exciting prospect. Summer!! Yay!! Summer with 23 new goals?? SUPER YAY! Let's see who can finish them all first. GO!
