Celebrating the Half Century!
What would you do to celebrate turning fifty? Here’s what I came up with to do during my fiftieth year.
Here’s the link to the list: http://www.dampcoastdame.com/?p=28
So as my half century (!?!) mark approaches, I feel the need to mark the momentous event in some sort of special way. And, honestly, I don’t think if can be achieved in a single, one day celebration. After all the sh*t I’ve been through, I think a prolonged celebration is in order.
How to do it?!?!
So how to do this? Naturally, I go to the well of all reason and logic – the internet. There are several others who have pondered this birthday and have come up with rather tedious and boring “over the hill” type parties. One idea did stand out though – Do 50 things you want to do in your 50th year.
How appealing is this idea? If you love to celebrating birthdays, mine or others, as much as I do, this is an incredibly FUN idea. It’s like having 50 birthdays! Some even with cake!
What would the 50 things Be?
The next issue is what will those 50 things be? Now this deserves thought. Should it be the 50 things I’ve always wanted to do or just 50 fun things? Perhaps a bit of both? Now if money was no object, the sky would be the limit. There would be dinners in exotic places, perhaps with celebrities. They’ll do anything for the right price. I wouldn’t mind dinner with Craig Ferguson although I would be laughing so much that I’d never get a bite of food. Come to think of it, I’d bet he’d be up for the idea.
So the ideas will be limited by budget constraints but that still leaves a lot of room for fun. The activities that please me now are very different from my youth. Throwing T.V.s out the window of the Austin Motor hotel with Billy Idol at 3 a.m. may be fun but it doesn’t hold the same appeal as getting a good night’s sleep. Ah, how the mighty have fallen.
The Punk Attitude Remains
But just because the punk rocker has gotten old doesn’t mean she’s lost her attitude. Whatever the list entails, I intend to give it a damn good try and to hell with what others think. For me, the next 50 years are all about fun and it starts June 8, 2013.
