When Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman filmed The Bucket List, their characters had very lofty goals in mind — like climbing the Himalayas, racing Mustangs, or eating at the finest restaurants in France.
Me? My “bucket list” items are simpler and more straightforward — like, what would it be like to be A 01 on a Southwest flight? It turns out that is isn’t so much different from being A 35, because so many pre-boards go in first that you don’t get that “the plane is my oyster” feel.
Still, I got to sit in an exit row on a Southwest flight. Not bad!
Next stop . . . the Himalayas.
