We've all heard of it: The Bucket List. And I'm not talking about the movie, I'm talking about the real thing. For those of you who may not have heard of it, The Bucket List is a list of things a person wants to do or accomplish before they die. Or, more appropriately, before they "kick the bucket."
I haven't made one yet. Why? Because I guess I'm a bit superstitious.
