    YOLO list?

    Wonder if anyone else had heard this expression? Instead of "bucket list" one of the walkers yesterday said that she just came back from Hawaii and they're using this term now. Your YOLO list ...... You Only Live Once .... it does sound a little more "exotic" doesn't it? (they had just done the zip line so got to cross that off their list)

    I have heard of it, usually used by teenagers who are acting as if they had NINE lives instead of one, doing something really stupid like car surfing.

    Maybe it's time for us more mature folks to take it over!

    I like this term .... refers more about living. One time when I talked about my "bucket list", someone asked me how long I had to live ... I was a bit taken back.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    On my YOLO List, then:

    go hang gliding
    go glider flying
    visit Australia for an extended stay
    own and use a hammock slung between two massive oak trees
    hold my younger daughter's babies (she's 33 with no kids)
    sail on Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay
    eat a Waygu beef steak
    attend a Broadway play
    go to Houston for a week for the International Quilt Festival again (it's been 16 years!)

    I'm sure there are other things I can't think of at the moment.

    when I was about 5 I did zip lining with my neighbor on in his yard. we took the cloths line, and tied it up a tree, and the other end down at the foot of the metal post that held the cloths line, used his moms towels and potholders to slide down. That was a blast, but he got in big time trouble for it.

    I too would love a trip on a zip line. However, would have to train self to use a silent type scream so as to not lose teeth.

    I'd probably have to wear a Depends...fortunately my teeth are still okay. LOL
