The Crazy Bucket List

10 things you want to do before you die.

Well to be frank there are 395,678,342,659 things I want to do before I die. And most of them involve something extremely crazy. Going to Paris with the love of my life, scuba diving at the great barrier reef in Australia, Stuffing my face with the best of New York’s street food, going to the Oktoberfest in Germany are just some of the normal things I would do.  And I know I would do that. No matter what, these things will be marked as done on my list.

But the not so normal things I want to do are listed below. I want to do more than just these 10, but I figured I’d rather not make it official that I’m crazy but putting them out in public. 😀

Now, all these idea’s are not necessarily a fruit of my overactive imagination. I’v stolen some of them from other people.


1. Get into a cab and yell “Follow that car!”- We have seen this scene innumerable times in movies. And I’m hell bent on doing this someday.


2. Go to a stranger’s wedding and yell “Don’t marry her. I still love you” and the run away as fast as I can. I would love to stay back and look at the expression of ever person there but I’m pretty sure the wedding party would get me admitted at a mental hospital.


3. Walk up to a stranger, hand him a briefcase and whisper “You know what to do.” I would get some friend of mine to sit somewhere close by and record the reaction of that person.


4. Text “I hid the body” to a random number.


5. Go to Sydney and ask random people to help me locate ’42, Wallaby Way, Sydney‘. This address has been stuck in my head ever since I saw ‘Finding Nemo’.


6. Every time somebody asks me to do something, ask them if they need fries with that.- I have no idea why I want to do this but I’m sure a couple of times would be enough to drive everybody around me crazy.


7. Buy a parrot and teach him to say “Help! I’v been turned into a parrot!”. Oh! the joy of looking at people’s reactions.


8. Step into a crowded elevator and say with a perfectly straight face, “I’m sure you all are wondering why I’v gathered you all here today.” And when people start giving me weird expressions, act as if I’m shocked out of my wits and run out screaming.


9. Run to a stranger and look at them in horror. Then tell them with great urgency, “They found out about you. You need to leave the country as soon as possible.”


10. When I get a sales call, politely answer the phone and  In the middle of the conversation start asking them repeatedly if they believe in ghosts.

Things To Do Before I Die

Today one of my colleague told us he was engaged to be married. The wedding date has been fixed for February and he is really excited. Now, when the announcement was made and the congratulations given, the one question that came to my mind was that whether he has ticked off all the things that he wanted to do before he got married?? Though there is all the possibility that he had no such list.

I have bucket lists for everything in life. I had a bucket list for ‘Things to do before I turn 16’, ‘Things to do when I visit London’, Things to do before I graduate’, ’20 Things to do before I turn 20′ and so on.

I have a big list for the things that I want to do before I get married. But an even bigger one is  the list of things I want to do before I die. Now this list keeps getting longer every few days because I keep listening to people doing so many things that I vow to do them once before I die.

So today I’m sharing with you some of the things I plan to do before I die. I wanted to share the entire thing but that would probably take ages to complete and I’m sure nobody would be that interested in reading that!

1. Watch the launch of the space shuttle.

2. Star in a movie. If that not possible then be happy by being an extra.

3.  Tell the story of my life to a complete stranger sparing no details. (I have no idea who would be interested in that but the search is on).

4. Learn to rollerblade. I know how to roller skate but rollerblading made me sprain my foot more than once.

5. Go deep sea diving eat your catch.

6. Own a house with a beautiful sea view. (This is one very expensive wish considering the sky rocketing real estate prices 😦 )

7.  Buy a round-the-world air ticket and a rucksack and run away. (I soooo want to do this! It one of my best wish and I am determined to do this fairly soon.) 🙂

8. Learn ballroom dancing, salsa and jive.

9. Write a novel and get it published.

10. Go on an adventure trip to Spain with my best friends.

11. Go to the Oktoberfest in Munich and drink like crazy.

12. Spend the night in a haunted house.

13.  Spend New Years in New York.

14.  Fall completely and hopelessly in love.

15. Drive from New Delhi to Goa.

16. Ride the highest roller coaster in the world!

17. Be a part of the carnival in Rio.

18. Learn bar tending complete with the bottle juggling and all the awesome tricks.

19. Buy a convertible and drive  with the  roof down and music blaring.

20. Go up in a hot air balloon and get my boyfriend to propose me. ( I have to find a boyfriend first and then keep dropping hints for him to propose me up there.)

21. Go to Vegas and gamble away all my money.

22. Create my family tree complete with pictures on my living room wall.

23. Take part in a marathon.

24. Spend a night partying on the streets of New York.
