I am sitting in the airport waiting for my delayed airplane as I write this. It amazes me that you can have so many people in one place going to so many different spots in the world – Amsterdam, Texas, New york, Denver, England, Hawaii (me). With all of these people going to so many different places throughout the world I started to think like I was all alone in the big global fishbowl – then, I ran into two people I knew. That completely changed my way of thinking and made me realize that it really is a small world after all.
Today was a quickie – how many licks to get to the center of a tootsie pop. This was a question that had perplexed me since childhood, so I sent out to discover it’s answer. I was astounded, over 230 (video to follow soon).
A friend asked me how does that belong on the list as it does not carry the same weight as say – spending the day blind. And yes he is right to an extent. The goal of the list is to step outside of my comfort zone, to do things and experience things I normally wouldn’t do and have fun at the same time. You would be amazed at the amount of concentration it takes to count off all the tootsie pop licks. So while finally finding the solution to the age old tootsie pop question may not bring about world peace, it sure does put a smile on my face while I figure out what will. 🙂
