I don’t know where it got started exactly, but there are a whole bunch of books like 101 Things To Do Before You Die by Richard Horne with suggestions for people about where to go and how to spend their time before they, ah, expire. Some people want to learn how to skydive, ride a camel in the desert, visit Graceland or take a hot air balloon ride.
Before I die I want to swim with the dolphins. On the other hand, I’d be perfectly happy to die without jumping out of an airplane or running a marathon.
Just once before I die I would like to own one each of the following: an Armani suit, a Mercedes Benz automobile, a beach front home on Florida’s Gulf Coast and a Siberian Husky puppy.
Friday on television we’re going to be talking to some people about the things they want to do before they die. Feel free get us started with your comments below.
