She Left Me With Shards of Glass... and Bucket List Craziness...😮❗

Throughout my life, I've been casually crossing things off a list. These days, my targets are modest, NOT from having done it ALL, but because I'm comfortable. Yet, once in a while, I'm surprised when a thought consumes me, one that sneaks into my bucket list. It all began a couple of Saturdays ago.

I'd pulled an all-nighter, binge-watching 'Schitt's Creek'. Breakfast turned out to be dinner: I craved an old-fashioned meatloaf with mashed potatoes, maple roasted carrots, a cucumber salad and — of course — garlic bread au gratin. The meal was delicious, but the cleanup (I don't own a dishwasher), required a commitment too tangled for my tired brain. I left everything where it was, piled up on the counters, next to my two sinks.

And THAT'S when things went off the rails. A lazy 'laissez faire' attitude conspired with apathy, then bloomed into an idea that moulded a plan — and shaped this question.

'Can I use EVERY single knife, spoon, fork, plate, cup and bowl that I own, without washing ANYTHING — for the next two weeks?'

I mean, what's the point of keeping all this stuff clogging my cupboards if I'm never going to use it? My NEW bucket list pin had materialized. The only rule in this challenge was — the sinks could NOT be used for stacking. One needs some minimum standards.

Back when I was married and the lived at home, we'd regularly entertain a dozen people or more. Yes, we passed out paper plates for the BBQs we blazed, but on other occasions — the dinnerware and silver cutlery came out. My crammed cupboards were undoubtedly jonesing for that long-gone crowd; I imagined them pulsing, eager to please and be touched, once again.

Picture what my kitchen looked like after week one. I almost gave up, but I persevered because — I'm not a quitter. By week two, everything was piled precariously high, and I'd already had a miss-hap with (I forgot I had any) a glass plate.

I understand now why my ex-wife left those fuckers for me. Ever break one of them? You're picking shards and slivers of glass off your floors for days, and I expect... weeks.

This past Saturday, I'd finally used my last bowl. By noon, I looked into my bare cupboards and drawers and at the horrific mess in my kitchen and confirmed — my goal had been reached.

I had a satisfied smirk on my face as I surveyed the carnage. Then I realized — I'd have to start cleaning up all that crap. It wouldn't be an easy task. Pre-soaking in hot water was compulsory, and so was double washing. I lost track of all the hours it took, but eventually, I got the job done. My kitchen is sparkling clean and looks great. And, I discovered some new favourite bowls and plates.

Will I ever try this again? Never! I can hear some of you suggesting I get a life. Point taken. I could probably target other items on my bucket list, but you know, walking the Great Wall of China doesn't interest me anymore. Have I somehow morphed into a venerable, forgetful and boring homebody?
Ugh!

I've been drinking a coffee while writing. Hang on a sec; I'm going to wash the mug....

... I'll be right back.

...............................
*Addendum: I should have opened this question up to items on your 'sexual bucket list'. I've had a couple of threesomes — so I've ticked THOSE off.

Bucket list items – what have you got to share that you've either accomplished or still want to do? 🤔

My list included many travels, but as I sit here today, I think I'm OK where I am.
I've travelled enough, and I like the familiar feel of my bed sheets every night. I seem to have lost interest in the miles.😶

Bucket list item? 🤔
I got my sky diving license, and I'm TERRIFIED of heights. I don't think anything beats the fear of jumping out of planes at ten thousand feet. Scared the shit out of me yet, what thrills. 😮❗

I can see myself trying your challenge, LOL. It's fun to have goals.
I don't really have a bucket list anymore. I always wanted t spend time exploring Europe. Times and politics have changed and I'm not sure anymore. After this most recent trip, I'm rethinking traveling anywhere for any reason, LOL. It's exhausting. And I'm out of practice.

That is an amazing story. Thank god I have a dishwasher!

A lot of my bucket list was travel, but like you, I am starting to reconsider. Places I've checked off include Barcelona (Sagrada Familia in particular), Iguazu Falls, Torres del Paine park in Chile, Athens, Lake Bled in Slovenia.

I always wanted to do a river cruise through central Europe and in fact had a trip scheduled for fall 2020, which of course I canceled. Now I think it'll be a long time before being on a ship sounds appealing again.

I forgot to ask:Amazing story', as in — 'THAT'S unbelievable? Or' THAT'S unbelievably stupid? Or both? 🤔 It probably was... stupid, that is.
I've been having a spat of bad luck around my kitchen these days. Last Monday, I almost set the house on fire due to my carelessness.
And this, after 30 fricken years here.
Am I getting old?
'Amazing' would have been if you were here, to watch that train wreck unfold.😎🍷🍷❗

I don't have a bucket list per se but there are so many wonderful things in this world...in this continent...in this country that I would love to see. If I had to name one - a TransCanadian railroad trip.

Before I had a dishwasher, I only did dishes when I ran out of forks but I always rinsed things so nothing got dried on.

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation bangs on the door forever!

I haven't traveled much - just down the eastern seaboard of the US, Cancun, and Texas. I want to see the Roman Colosseum, the Parthenon, Stonehenge, Pompeii, and an Irish Castle. I'd like to see Newfoundland and New Zealand.
Hm, I seem to have a bucket-LOADER list.

Elevate me...

True about challenges! Although, perhaps I should get a PRACTICAL one.
So true about travel; ya need to stay in practise. lol 😂
I recall when I used to do a lot, it would take me a couple of trips to get the hang of it again.
Your last voyage sounded like fun, no? 🤔 ❗❗😎

Amazing, is NOT the word; 'I can't believe I'm doing this shit' would be more appropriate. lol 😂

So you've been around; sounds like fun. That boat cruise (I hear) is fun. Yep, things have changed a bit. But hey.... you've got your knitting projects, right? I'm sure you can think of something wild! 👍

If I had a dishwasher, THIS horror story never would have materialized. lol 😂 ❗❗😎

Wouldn't it be great to have unlimited means and time to do those?

Or at least, ONE of those. Hmmm... tough choice. Like I've mentioned, ya need a good travel buddy. Start the small talk at places where people volunteer; THEY, usually have jobs already. 😊
Good luck, ❗❗😎

I'd like to have sex on a train... not necessarily the TransCanadian train either... any train with a sleeping car/room will do. That's the top of the bucketlist right now.

Naked skydiving? Nope — can't see THAT as being fun. Especially since I know how the wind blows way up there! lol 😂

Trains, huh? That is such a romantic goal and one born of Bond movies? 🤔 lol 😂
Yep... I can feel the rhythm of the tracks adding something to the event! Good one!
And thanks for shifting the theme. I should have added THAT option from the start. lol 😂 🍷🍷😎❗❗

During my wild years quite a few things got ticked off, lol. I was in a few threesomes, I went to one swinger party (overrated), I've been to a huge outdoor bdsm party that was held at a nudist resort. I never did achieve a threesome with two men. I don't think it's going to happen at this point. As I've been known to say, it's hard enough finding ONE guy I'm interested in being intimate with, let alone two at the same time who are comfortable with each other.

Wow... lol 😂 I'm a neophyte compared to you. That thing with the outdoor BDSM party sounds reeeleee intriguing. Hmmm...

I've had 2 types of threesomes but I wasn't a fan of another rooster in the same bed. Ya think your chances of finding 2 men are slim? 🤔 I don't know about that.
Start with one... and see how it goes. Unless he's like me and LOCKS the door. lol 😂 😮 ❗❗😎

I'd go alone but all the rooms are booked double occupancy
