Competition - Day 9 - Don't Let Me Die Before You Reply!

Posted at 20:06pm on 11th September 2008

Look, I’m sorry to sound sergeant majorish, but this is pay-back time! I’ve succumbed to your silence by speaking out myself, and I’ve identified one - no TWO - of the items I’d like to do before I die. (See below)

This competition was prompted by the book 100Things To Do Before You Die, written by Dave Freeman. His death, at the age of 47, has prompted a flurry of posts on various sites.

All I’m asking is for you to tell us a mere 5 things you’d like to do before you die! Surely that’s not too hard? :)

COUNTING DOWN: ONLY 19 DAYS TO GO.

MY LIST STARTS HERE:

  1. 1. I’d like to go to India before I die. My father used to talk to me when I was a child, of how he, and some other RAF pilots during the war, used to feed the starving children on the streets of Calcutta on a daily basis. To begin with they gave money. But that had to stop because adults took it from the children. So they bought food and watched the kids eat it. Eventually the police had to stop them doing that, too, because there were so many it started a riot.
  2. 2. I’d like to HEAR FROM SOME OF YOU BEFORE I DIE!
