    I’m a little collusion-ed out. Lol.

    I think this thread is not so much about agreeing or disagreeing...but how phrases affect us personally, subjectively (am I wrong here, lol?)

    Bucket list. Who puts lists in a bucket?
  • CreeklandCreekland Registered User Posts: 5,625 Senior Member
    We sometimes put travel destinations in a bucket (or hat) and pick one. It's a lot of fun. We have oodles of things we want to do on our Bucket List (loved the movie), so I suppose actually doing it at times adds to the fun.

    We're contemplating putting everything we can think of into that bucket and starting to work through it now that we've reached empty nesting stage. Right now we're on hold while our parents are at the end of their lives. Seeing them at their age and knowing we're there before long actually is part of the inspiration. Do things now when we still can.

    And all the honoring of live veterans on Memorial Day. They have a Veterans Day in November. Let's remember those who actually died in war. "Memorial" is a clue.

    We've reached 32 pages and no one has mentioned that gifting is not a verb. I think the origin came from Robin Leach and "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." I can just hear him trying to sound airy and upper crust with his low class accent.

    "Gifting" is the "moist" of the action-word world.." https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2014/12/gifting-is-not-a-verb/383676/

    I actually heard a young woman bragging, "my grandparents gifted me their double wide..." recently. I just know in her mind she was spelling "their" "there." I blame HGTV.
