Patrick's Moolala Goals

Patrick’s Moolala Goals include milking a poisonous snake

My nephew Patrick is 12 years old and in grade 7. We had dinner a few nights ago and he told me he’d been reading Moolala. He pulled out his list of goals and proceeded to knock my socks off. Here are a few of the sixty-seven goals he wrote down: Learn to juggle while balancing something on my face, see Elvis’ grave, milk a poisonous snake, raise $1 Million for child soldiers, play a Gibson SG model cherry red double neck guitar, experience weightlessness, try some pungent cheese and, last but not least, discover an element. Yeah. As in the periodic table.

I love his list because it is a great reminder of how younger people can help older people recapture their ability to dream.
