Before Im 45

Once again I have been looking for different themes for my blog and once again I have found nothing of any worth, maybe one or two but not much to fuss over. While I was looking I came across something posted on one of the themes that did not start with Ipsum. The post reminded me of a post Scribbler made on his blog namely "Before Im 30" the link back there is actually an update of the afore mentioned post but it did get me thinking (The post from the free theme that did not have Ipsum in it not Scribblers post) so I copied it into a notepad and here it is, pretty accurate as well.

Things to do before Im 45 (Im 42 now)

Be A Kid Again

1. Do a cartwheel.
2. Sing into your hairbrush.
3. Walk barefoot in wet grass.
4. Play a song you like really loud, over and over.
5. Dot all your “i”’s with smiley faces.
6. Read the funnies. Throw the rest of the paper away.
7. Dunk your cookies.
8. Play a game where you make up the rules as you go along.
9. Step carefully over sidewalk cracks.
10. Change into some play clothes.
11. Try to get someone to trade you a better sandwich.
12. Eat ice cream for breakfast.
13. Kiss a frog, just in case.
14. Blow the wrapper off a straw.
15. Have someone read you a story.
16. Find some pretty stones and save them.
17. Wear your favorite shirt with you favorite pants even if they don’t match.
18. Take a running jump over a big puddle.
19. Get someone to buy you something you really don’t need.
20. Hide your vegetables under your napkin.
21. Stay up past your bedtime.
22. Eat dessert first.
23. Fuss a little, then take a nap.
24. Wear red gym shoes.
25. Put way too much sugar on your cereal.
26. Make cool screeching noises every time you turn a corner.
27. Giggle a lot for no reason.
28. Give yourself a gold star for everything you do today

The above list did make me think about things I did as a kid that would not even enter my head now, well except for No. 13 which is a girl thing I think.

Unfortunately I did not think to copy the link to this theme.. Oops my bad
