Michelle Wolfe’s Bucket List Items – Part 1
There are a lot of things I want to do before I get hit by a bus. Hence, my own Bucket List. These are just a few, big and small. (I think it’s crucial to have small ones on there too so you can actually check as few off before you hear the horn.)
After giving it some thought, I’ve decided there are some things that I’ve done thus far in life that I absolutely WILL NOT DO AGAIN. Like, being present when someone gives birth. Done that. Twice. (My best friend Angie’s kids…) But I sure as hell won’t be doing that again. I don’t care what anyone says. That s*** is gnarly and not a spectator sport.
I can also tell you that there will be some things on my list (probably future installments) that aren’t very nice. Please don’t judge me for them. None of us are as pure as the driven snow. (Don’t tell me there isn’t a person or two who deserve a good slap on the face….and you’d probably feel great about it.) But I digress…
1) OWN A MOTORCYCLE – Not sure why I haven’t done this one yet. Every time a get on the back of someone ELSE’S motorcycle, I swear that someday I’ll have my own. My father always told me (when I was 16) that I couldn’t have one and I think his voice pops into my head when I broadcast live every year from Yellowstone Harley Davidson. Hell, I’d settle for a refurbished Trail 90. Perhaps when you reach an age at which you can afford your own, you don’t have to listen to your father anymore.
2) GO TO CUBA – This is something I’d like to do with my dad. We’ve talked about it for years. And it really pisses me off that some archaic commie hating law says I can’t. Kinda makes me want to do it even more and see what happens if I get caught changing planes in Veracruz. Could probably skirt the issue with a press visa. Have to look into that.
3) MAKE SURE ALL MY FRIENDS UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPOUND INTEREST – This may seem like an odd choice, but I’m a geek and I don’t want my friends eating dog food in their old age because they didn’t start saving early enough. Investment calculators are good things.
4) HAVE A MUSIC MEMORABILIA ROOM – Even if I got out of the business tomorrow, I have enough cool stuff and great memories that are currently stuffed away in unmarked boxes. Don’t have a clue why I’ve never bothered to hang any of it up (except for the signed Widespread album art for “Everyday”). It sadly may have to do with my illogical obsession with keeping the walls in my house hole free. What’s that about?
5) VISIT THE FLOOR OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE – If radio wasn’t my “profession”, I’d probably be in Finance or Investments. The science of money and commerce has always fascinated me and seeing the hub of that chaos sounds cool.
….That’s it for now, but I’ll add more soon.
