My Anti-Bucket List

Posted October 29, 2015 by Elizabeth in Beyond the Books, discussion/ 10 Comments

woman-jailKaren gave us a really original theme for this week’s Beyond the Books, an Anti-Bucket List, things we definitely hope to never do before we die or never do again. I can’t think of any biggies, but I have a few small things I don’t want to deal with again or ever.

Go to jail/get arrested. Never have been, never want to.

Everything else are things that I’ve experienced and didn’t like at all.

pondWalk barefoot in a pond with a sucking, slimy bottom.

Smash a big bug that splats green all over the place.

Live with a roommate.

Get explosively pooped on while changing a diaper.


These are all pretty self-explanatory, I think.  What about you? Anything you never want to experience again?  Do you have an anti-bucket list of your own?

  1. I agree with you on all of these! I hate stepping barefoot in squishy things, even if it’s just wet grass. And luckily I never got pooped on with my kids lol. Great list!

  2. I remember the poop explosions. Luckily nothing as bad as you must have experienced. I hate being vomitted on, but I imagine that isn’t over yet . . . The pond you described. Ick! I can just imagine. That would be horrible. I wouldn’t want to do any of the things you talk about either. Great list!

  3. OMG, no none of those and neither do I want them! Cow poop though I’ve had splattered over me when young and also accidentally ate a green bug when young, neither of which I want to repeat.

  4. This is a great idea Elizabeth. I’m trying to think of mine, but they probably involve things like travel to certain places etc… which are sometimes anticlimactic!

  5. This is such a fun topic this week! I don’t really have a list but I can certainly agree with those! Especially that last one- good grief. Although it’s almost happened… 🙂

    I agree about the sucking slimy ponds. Was exploring some coastal areas once and it was like that, it got kinda nasty. Not fun (well it was, excep for the sliminess). 🙂

  6. Definitely with you on the going to jail/getting arrested! Wow on getting explosively pooped on. I’ve cleaned up the aftermath afterwards but never had it happen on me. I have been peed on but that’s not even in the same ballpark. I think that goes on my anti-bucket list too!
