Last week of my 20s, you guys. Sweatin' over here.
Time for the home stretch of my list of 30 things I should have and do before I turn 30 on June 30th.
Things I should have: Jumper cables / A driver's license
Again, Mr. List, this is an odd order to do things. But I'll play along...
I failed my driver's test on my first attempt. I had been driving farm machinery for years and was a good driver. But I took a Ford Explorer with tinted windows to do the parallel parking section and got more cockeyed than...well there's no where to take that joke that remains PG-13 so I'm just gonna let it sit there.
Things I should do: Be a rock god / Eat something truly weird
I was in a rock band in high school. Our name was Shatt. I played the drums (poorly) and we also had a guitarist, bassist and singer - who all did their jobs poorly as well. I was the worst musician, but much better than everyone else at having a basement for practice sessions, so I got to be in the band. We were awful. But when you are from a town of 6,000 people, the number of rock bands is fairly minimal, meaning just by virtue of being IN a band, I was in one of the three best bands in town. Rock God!
As for eating something weird - I order chicken livers all the time. They're delicious. And it drives my vegetarian wife crazy. But at least she doesn't have to parallel park.
