What do I want to be remembered for?

When I saw this question, my first thought was to ignore it. It made me feel uneasy. I’m not near retirement, and I hope, not near ready to kick the bucket.

But when I thought about it a second time, I decided to think of it as a challenge. I also realized I could try to have a little fun with it. After all, the way I see myself is definitely different from the way others – friends, relatives, co-workers – see me.

So what do I want to be remembered for?

  1. No matter how simple a joke is, I always forget the punchline.
  2. I hate sushi and asparagus.
  3. A whiff of chocolate can turn my stomach.
  4. If I had to rely on my math skills to make a living, I would starve.
  5. I stayed home from school the day we were supposed to dissect the rat in science class.
  6. I’m very athletic – in my mind!
  7. I dream mostly in color.
  8. I don’t always do the right thing.
  9. I only buy the lottery when it’s more than $100 million.
  10. I’m not indecisive. I just like to cover all angles.
