Tomorrow sees a significant item being checked off my bucket list. That being, ‘See Bill Cosby live.’ As in, ‘in concert’. Not just ‘breathing’. Ehem. I’ve had the ticket for months – even though I knew it would involve some logistical hiccups in making it happen, namely because: – I have no child-care; – The closest his tour is coming to where I live is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a good seven hours drive away at best; and – I have no child-care.
