Joe Boughner: The Naked Dad


The Naked Dad's "Not a Bucket List" Challenge

I'm in a rut. Help me get out.

My wife kicks no fewer than eight different varieties of ass. 

A self-diagnosed wallflower for much of her life, she's taken the proverbial bull by the proverbial horns and forced herself out of her comfort zone, trying new things, meeting new people, and generally living life bravely.

Me? I never felt the need to do so. I've generally been outgoing enough. I've done cool stuff in my life, and I've experienced plenty of cool things. But lately I've felt like I've been in a bit of a rut. There are things I talk about doing, but I never really get around to them. 

So I'm calling myself out and forcing encouraging all of you to be my witnesses.

And there's a twist.

I've got a few things I want to try (listed below) but I also want ideas.

What are some things I should try? What should I force myself to do?

I reserve the right to refuse things, but I'll always give a good reason if I do. And my wife gets a veto, obviously. But otherwise, I'm open to any challenge. Just leave it in the comments.
