Evidently Honda started the concept of a Leap List (or 10 things to do before a major life event, such as getting married, turning a certain age, etc.) but I didn't hear of it until watching the Bachelor. Yes, you can learn something even when watching something as mindless as reality T.V. So, in light of that, er, enlightenment I have composed my own Leap List of things I want to do before turning 40. Except I only have 5 things on my list. Apparently, I'm not that ambitious.
1) I'd like to learn to crochet or knit. I've been meaning to get around to asking my 80-year old neighbor to teach me, but haven't yet. However, when I do finally learn you can bet I'm going to make awesome things like this:

2) I want to travel to Prince Edward Island. Because I love the movie Anne of Green Gables, that's why.
3)I'd like to learn to play the fiddle really well. Preferably without taking lessons or practicing.
4) I want to make close friends with someone famous. Hopefully this person will have lots of money and a generous spirit.
5) I want to perform a citizen's arrest.
Happily it is allowed in the United States but usually only done when witnessing someone performing a felony. I don't actually like to be around crime all that much, so I would prefer to arrest someone performing a misdemeanor, most likely the junior high students who skip school and hang out at the park by my house. I called the police about them again last week and I get the feeling the police may be getting tired of my calls. Next time, I'll take matters into my own hands.
What's on your leap list?
