I consider myself to be fairly adventurous. I actually bought this book for My Party Poopin' friend because she is also scared to try new things. It's got stuff like:
- Make angels in the snow
- See a Rodeo
- Hula Hoop
Me: check, check and check. In fact, I HAVE a blue hula hoop in my room. Right now. And before I tried to crack my ankle in half, I played with my hula hoop every morning after I came from the gym. It's good exercise, and it's fun.
And then I read it, because I didn't expect to see my friend for a few days, and I told her I'd give it to her when she came for a visit. And I saw stuff like:
- Be and extra in a movie (which I'm DYING to do)
- Write out a wish list
- Make a gingerbread house from scratch (yummy)
So I went back and got one for myself. And I went through it and checked off stuff that I've done already. Have phone sex (hey, I'm married to a military man, what do you want from me?), check. Buy someone a present for no reason at all, check. Read to children, check..check... and CHECK. Hell, I can even write it things I've done.
I thought it would be way cool to have a list of all the things that I did, "back in the day" as well as things I want/am going to do. And when the brat gets older, and I'm not longer cool (will that day ever come..? psht..nahhh), she can say her Mom was a tattoo getting, prize fight going, love note leaving, singing in the shower, back stage sneaking, broad. And she enjoyed every minute of it.
And maybe it will teach the brat not to be afraid of life, or of trying something new. And the POSSIBILITIES. For all I know, she may WANT to be the Grand Marshall at a St. Patrick's Day Parade, or have a signature color, or have multiple orgasms (it's in the book, I'm not tellin' if it's checked...LOL)
