A Successful Life

Katie bought the fun version of Life at D.I. the other day, and we've played it at least 5 times already. I lose most of the time. I'm not sure why. I just end up paying for box tickets to the World Series and producing a music video for a rock band. I think it's funny that success in the game of life is determined by how much money you have. Sure, you get tokens for doing things like "going fishing" and "playing a family game" but those tokens are just converted into money at the end of the game.

On the back of those tokens are things you have accomplished, showing you what a successful and full life you've had. Here are the things that make an abundant life...according to Life. You can consider this my to-do list:
  1. Climb Mt. Everest
  2. Invent New Ice Cream Flavor
  3. Run World Record Mile
  4. Solution to Pollution
  5. Nobel Peace Prize
  6. Humanitarian Award
  7. Invent New Sport
  8. Build Better Mousetrap
  9. Pulitzer Prize
  10. Swim English Channel
  11. Design New Computer
  12. Cure the Common Cold
  13. Compose a Symphony
  14. Paint a Masterpiece
  15. Write a Great American Novel
  16. Win Dance Contest
  17. Lifetime Achievement Award
  18. Open Health Food Chain
  19. Save Endangered Species
  20. Family Horse Wins Derby
  21. Become President
  22. Toy Invention Wins Big
  23. Discover New Planet
  24. Find New Energy Source
The back of the box says that there should be 25 tokens, so I guess we're missing one. That's OK; I'll just make my own:

    25. Write a blog post every day for a year

Is that comment on your last post for real? Does Bidetsprayerman go around snooping on blogs for bidet posts? Too funny.
