Eleven, Eleven, Eleven (11-11-11) has come and gone and the world didn’t end…crap!…because over at The Chameleon’s Backbone, we partied, ate, drank, and blew money like it was our last day on earth.
It was also Mr. Backbone’s birthday, so we pulled out all the stops.
We rented car service…picked up some friends….
…and hit the town.
Every once in a while, we need to treat ourselves like the rock stars we want to be. Until now, I’ve never picked a random (or not so random) date on the calendar and acted like I would if it was my last day alive.
Sure…serving food to the homeless might have earned me a place in heaven. Spending my rainy day fund on some sinful gluttony happened instead. (Where’s that pamphlet I filed about going to Hell?)
Most of our evening was spent at the swanky downtown Pittsburgh restaurant, Eleven.
(If you ever visit Pittsburgh, the menu at Eleven is fabulous. The food is perfectly prepared. The wine selection is unbelievable. The atmosphere is trendy and cool.)
A thought crossed my mind on Eleven, Eleven, Eleven, at Eleven, as dessert was being served at minutes before Eleven p.m.
You have no idea if you have decades to live, just a few years, or a single day. Whatever it is that you want to do…don’t wait until tomorrow. If you think it’s over-the-top, unrealistic, or too expensive without a coupon, put those thoughts out of your mind. I’m not suggesting that you disrupt your life. I’m suggesting that you enhance life…enjoy it…stop sitting around in your robe and slippers and waiting for a day that might never come. Minutes turn to hours…turn to days…turn to years…and then it could be too late.
If there’s an 11-11-11-11-11 moment that you’ve been waiting to make happen, don’t delay…put the wheels in motion today.
If you only had one day left, what would you do?
