Just once in my life,...

Updated on March 20, 2012

These are things that I would like to happen to me just once in my life:

Just once, I would like to jump out of an airplane. (Don't know why, but I just want to see the world from that perspective.)

Just once, I'd like to date a drop-dead gorgeous woman.

Just once, I'd like to drive a car that goes from zero to sixty in 3 seconds.

Just once, I'd like to go to a fancy restaurant and order everything on the menu.

Just once, I'd like to go to Vegas with about $5,000 in my pocket and gamble till I either tripled my money or went broke.

Just once, I'd like not to cry when I read "The Kissing Hand".

Just once, I'd like to go to Hawaii.

Just once, I'd like to go to Alaska.

Just once, I'd like to go to England and find the castle my great-great granddad was supposed to inherit but died two weeks before he was to go over there.

Just once, I'd to see and hear my mom again.

Just once, I'd like to talk to my Great Aunt Dell again.

Just once, I'd like to see the Baltimore Orioles make it to the playoffs one more time before i die. (Peter Angelos, just sell the damned team, willya?)

Just once, I'd like to have my own tv show.

Just once, I'd like to run a radio station. With my eclectic tastes, it would be interesting!

Just once, I'd like to have a reunion of the fine folks I met in my fantasy wrestling league, the GWA. We started out before the Internet was available commercially, and I've been friends with some of these people for over 20 years. (In fact, two of them married each other.)

Just once, I would like to live in a mansion for a short time, with a butler and a maid and their servants three,... (Led Zeppelin reference,...)

Just once, I wish my brain would focus long enough to write the next great novel or work of literature.

Just once, I wish the whole world loved me.

Just once, I wish Cartoon Network would show actual interesting CARTOONS!!! Instead of that live-action crap, like Children's Hospital.

Just once, I wish the kids of today would like rock and roll music more than rap.

Just once, I wish I had no money worries.

Just once, I'd like to hit the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes. (Christ, they send me about six notices a day in my email. You'd think by accident, I'd hit for $50,000,...)

Just once, I wish people would behave and follow the rules.

Just once, I wish some twenty-something wouldn't curse at me when I ID them for cigarettes.

Just once, I wish a deer would not treat my headlights as an invitation to run 50 miles an hour right into them.

Just once, I wish I was totally relaxed and carefree.

And, just once, I would like to make some serious money on hubpages.

Thank you for allowing me the time to rant,...we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming,...
