Several years ago a book came out titled “1000 Places You Must See Before You Die”. Then there was another book titled “100 Things You Must Do Before You Die”. And now there is a new book titled “1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die”.
I love the idea of these books. How wonderful to consider that someone would take the time to write a list for me! I love lists. They sort things out so well. On paper, anyway.
But now I have a problem. What am I supposed to do? What book am I supposed to read and follow first? After all, they all hint that I will die. And that worries me. “When will I die?,” I want to ask them. It makes a difference. Should I travel? Get spiritual? Sort my sock drawer? Or eat?
I like these books. And am particularly interested in this last one, which offers not only 100 things I must do (before I die); not only 1000 things I must do (before I die); but actually 1001 things I must do (before I die). A whole bonus thing to do!
Obviously I must get cracking. No time to waste.
