Thinking of this subject brings my mind to a fairly recent film The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy-drama film directed by Rob Reiner, written by Justin Zackham, and starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The main plot follows two terminally ill men (portrayed by Nicholson and Freeman) on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they “kick the bucket” (source Wikipedia).
To kick the bucket is an English idiom that is defined as “to die” in the Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue (1785). It is considered a euphemistic, informal, or slang term. Its origin remains unclear, though there have been several theories. (source Wikipedia)
This brings me to a few questions
“Do you have a bucket list?”
“Have you completed your bucket list?”
“Have you put an end date to achieving your bucket list? I do not mean the end date of ‘death’”
“Can you give any examples of things on your bucket list?”
“If you do not have a bucket list, what is the reason?”
