I Need Just Enough Rope To Hang Myself.

Have you ever made a Bucket List? You know, that list of the top 25 things you want to do before you die. I've heard of people making them, but I myself have never made one. Until Saturday night. Saturday night I started my Bucket List, but because I'm creative and probably rank pretty high on the genius scale I'm doing mine a little differently.

I'm not making a list of things I want to do.

I'm making a list of things I don't want to do.

Bucket List:
1. Never do a ropes course. Ever. Again.

And this is the part where you're probably thinking, "Whoa, Melissa did a ropes course this weekend. Go Melissa!" Stop with all your go's and whoa's. I did no such thing. Granted I went to a ropes course. Granted I signed a waiver allowing me to participate at a ropes course. But I did not do a ropes course.

Whereas some women decided to take a more hands-on approach. I decided to take a more spectatortorial approach. (It's a word, look it up.)

I would like to go on record as saying there were many drawbacks to me doing a ropes course. Let's start at the top, shall we?
1. I get winded walking to my car.
2. I recently had knee surgery and spent 6 weeks on crutches. If something else happens to my knee the Attorney General will take me to the Greyhound Bus Station an drop me off. For good.
3. I get winded walking to my car.
4. I had pneumonia a month ago. (Hush! It hangs on for 6 weeks.)
5. I get winded walking.....well, you know.
6. At one point you hurl your body over a wall. Do I need to come up with more reasons?

Now, I'm not gonna type this post as if everything about the day was terrible, it wasn't. I really enjoyed doing it with the group of ladies I got to do it with. I liked every single one of them and have no problem believing that they liked me back (even though in my mind I know its because they didn't have to help hurl my body over a wall.) But I will admit to you it was the maddest I have ever been at God and His nature. I am just not an outdoorsy kind of girl.

Now had they had a ropes course inside a Sephora, I would have gladly scaled a wall for some free OPI or Kiehl's cream. Or better yet, when will a genius arise like a venus rising from the sea and open up some kind of pedicure place that serves latte's while you watch America's Funniest Home Video's of people doing ropes courses? Now there's a franchise I could get behind.

So here's to all my sweet friends who did this...


And this...





while I did this...

You make a Bucket List of things you DON'T want to do....what would be on yours?

I'm sure there are 25 things that I wouldn't like to do as well (cause that whole getting winded walking to the car thing sounds SOOO familiar). But a ropes course would not have even crossed my mind. And thanks to your visuals, it will now certainly be included on my list. Hope you have a great week.

oh simple, I wouldn't get out of bed today because umm our 400 degree Texas weather disappeared and it's cold outside. I miss my sweat already.

Hello Melissa! It was fun hanging out with you. I was actually SORE all day Sunday and I did about as much as you! I still have visions of those poor girls trying to scale the wall. It was not pretty.

You can also draw designs on the bugs' backs with ketchup or mustard. It should be spread onto the pizza stone or pan in a layer less than an inch thick, and then the squash crust will need to be baked for at least 20 minutes before putting toppings on it and baking again.
