As usual, I’m sitting here, working. I always have music or a show playing in the background, and today’s selection is my “Wicked” soundtrack. My love for this musical cannot really be measured. Which is why it still sticks in my craw that I have yet to see it on Broadway. It’s certainly high on my bucket list.
Hum…you know if it’s on your bucket list, then obviously it’s important to you, so how do you decide which thing on your bucket list is the most important? I have a bucket list but I don’t know how much progress I’ve made. Obviously “see Wicked on Broadway” remains unchecked…
This also makes me think of what my final wishes are. A few days ago I told one of my friends that when I pass I don’t want a stuffy, formal funeral. I want a party. I’m flattered that there could be people who will weep at my passing, I’d much prefer my dearest celebrate my passing with a party. Share memories, laugh a lot, enjoy that I was once there instead of mourning the fact I am now gone.
I also have an interesting request for my remains. Here’s the step-by-step request:
1. Cremate me. If you just HAVE to have a viewing, rent the casket, do it for a day and move on.
2. Throw the party I mentioned above.
3. When you get my remains back from the crematorium, get on a plane to Jamaica.
(Some of you know what’s coming, lol)
4. Fly to Ochos Rios.
5. Pick a waterfall, doesn’t matter which one.
6. Let’s back up a second. When you get off the plane and hop in a taxi, you will be offered something. Take it, you’ll need it later. Later, (and still before the waterfall) use what you were offered in the taxi (or the airport, or by the guy who carries your bag through the airport). Add those ashes to my ashes. Now, go to the waterfall.
7. Dump my ashes into the water.
8. As for financing this adventure, that’s why I have life insurance. 🙂
Okay, now that I have that off my chest, I’m going back to work. Broadway tickets and trips to NYC aren’t free.
