When I made mention of the website beforeidieiwantto.org (Note: This website has died…pun intended.) the other day, I was also going to mention that there was a movie called The Bucket List that was based on that concept of creating a list of things to do before you “kick the bucket.” Saw it. Made me check to see whether I was living my life right. Think I am.
Well, I read this morning that Dave Freeman, co-author of the book “100 Things to Do Before You Die” died last week. Dave was only 47 years old. He has been attributed with starting the “before you die” style of books. According to a BBC article, Amazon list more than 150 books written about things to do before you go. According to CNN, Dave had a list and he was only about halfway through it. Hmmmm.
I guess if you plan on starting a list, ya better get to working on it. I think I want another bowl of ice cream before I… go to bed!
