Replacing Sushi

For the past two or three years, I've had three goals that aren't really vital to my life--meaning, I don't need to accomplish these goals in order to feel like my life was worthwhile.

The goals:
  1. Learn how to swim;
  2. Go camping for the first time; and
  3. Try sushi
Now that I've tried sushi, I'm thinking of replacing the third goal with another not-really-necessary goal... you know, always keep three such goals replenished throughout my life.

After thinking of several possibilities, I've decided that my new goal is [drum-roll]:
  • Go on a road-trip to Canada


  1. It would be cool if I could teach you how to swim and you could teach me how to dance. The only problem is that I don't think anyone, even you, could teach me how to dance. And just because I think I could teach you how to swim does't mean I really could. Oh well it is occasionally interesting to face the possibility learning to do things I don't really think I could learn to do.

  3. Ned: If you have the desire and patience, you'll be able to learn how to dance. I'd definitely be willing to teach you (I'm a very patient teacher).

    PG: That's how I learned how to be cool.

  4. You need to combine #1 with the new #3.


    And, if you haven't fulfilled #3 before then, I'm planning a road trip to Canada for later this summer. You'd be a welcomed guest.

  7. I like it. I love Canadia. I'll probably drive to Seattle soon, and Vancouver/Victoria could easily be added, can't come. I'd have to strap you to the top of my car, and I'm not sure when I'll be back.'d be not so much a road trip and more extended getaway...of course, we have yet to find out if we can stand each other for more than a few hours at a time, and I've decided road trips are dicey ways to test that unless there are enough of the right people going. Road tripping is an art I perfected over the years of weekend jaunts to Seattle, the Oregon Coast, Salt Lake, wherever...ah, road trips. I really still typing? Yep, I am. G'night!
