Start Your Own Bucket List Club

Kick Me!

AnyWhere, USA – Not long after hearing about the 2007 blockbuster movie “The Bucket List”, my spouse-mate and I decided to start our own Bucket List Club.

We thought the idea of having on-going lists of things we each wanted to do before we “kicked the bucket” was a cool idea.

Taking that one step further, starting or joining a Bucket List Club is a great way of regularly getting together with other Bucketeers to discuss and share ideas, review and add to your lists, as well as check-off the items you’ve already accomplished.

Just remember that it’s never too early (or too late) to start a list of things you would like to do or accomplish before you kick the proverbial can.

Here are 25 fun ideas you may want to consider adding to your own Bucket List (if they’re not already on it), or at least these may get your creative juices flowing to brainstorm some others, that you can perhaps share at our next meeting.

  1. Check-in to a homeless shelter and spend the night.
  2. Follow a police car around until it pulls over.
  3. Greet people as they walk into Wal-Mart and ask for I.D.
  4. Sneak in little bottles of rum to add to your Designated Driver Cokes.
  5. Stand up at weddings of strangers and say “I strenuously object.”
  6. Write a novel and then read it during open-mic night at a poetry lounge.
  7. Pretend to be completely blind for a day.
  8. Throw Dots at people in a movie theater.
  9. Enter a poker tournament and play the race card.
  10. At the mall, have a loud animated argument with your smart phone.
  11. Volunteer at the Humane Society long enough to release all the dogs.
  12. Respond to panhandlers and solicitors with: “Sorry, I do not speak English.”
  13. Stand almost motionless in the front window of a clothing store.
  14. Call a hotel front desk from home and order some room service.
  15. Attend a local Catholic mass dressed as the pope.
  16. Visit retirement home residents and claim you’re “family”.
  17. Put out signs directing people to a garage sale at your neighbor’s house.
  18. Try talking a used-car salesman into selling you a car for $1.
  19. Capture wild rabbits and breed them for money.
  20. Call into local radio talk-shows and ask them why they called you.
  21. Loudly yell out “Drinks on the house!” in a packed bar.
  22. Laugh before the punch-lines, while attending a comedy club.
  23. Experience a rustic Carnival cruise – without toilets, food, and power.
  24. When out with Karaoke friends, sign up to sing the entire Lord’s Prayer.
  25. Start your own Bucket List Club!

As a Life Coach, some lessons I like to pass onto others are: 1. don't stare at strangers, especially in jail, 2. don't leave fun to find fun, 3. never pet a burning dog, 4. don't eat more than you can lift, and 5. when in doubt, jot it down. Click on any picture in my posts to see them in their full glory. All have been tweaked with either or or :o)
