I like making lists. I particularly like drawing that line across each item. Nothing like saying done, done and done. Several months ago MacDaddy and I managed to scratch off three things (in two days! ) from our combined bucket list. That felt really good. And so one night before bedtime we got around to talking "bucket lists".
Me: What's one thing you wish you could do?
Mak: Be an animal
Me: Mak, not something that's impossible. Something you wish you could do or see. Something that can really happen.
Mak: See a rhino and a hippo
Tato: Touch snow
Geez. Tall order. Snow, hippos and rhinos in good ole Tropical 'Pinas just won't happen. Neither will hippos and rhinos in snow anywhere. I did a little bit of research. (Thank you, internet!) And then I made my own list. Pocket-friendly, child-friendly, MacDaddy-friendly, some "snow", a hippo, a rhino. Bingo! We left a few weeks ago as soon as summer started.
