Last night, my girlfriend Sue started a bucket list on Facebook. Sue, a bartender amongst her many talents, topped the list with “A Pub Crawl in Ireland!!” I chimed in early on and simply complained about warm Guinness, liking my beer chilled the American way. I also joked about starting this list so early? In the movie: The Bucket List, the men were on their deathbeds when Morgan Freeman’s character came up with the concept.
Okay Susie, we know you like to get the party started! Perhaps she’s thinking this might be a grand way to celebrate the big five-o? Then she came back prodding me to add to the list. I don’t know why I didn’t see this coming.
After some thought and courage I added to the list…
“Okay, as unemployment has become a way of life… I’ve begun the great manuscript, so finishing it, getting it published, and on the NY Times bestseller list would have to be on the top of my list… Promise to join you in Ireland upon publication.”
After all, it would take some money to do a Trans-Atlantic pub-crawl.
I want to credit Kristen Lamb for giving me the courage to come out!
How did you come out? Please share your comment!
