Can anyone say that going swimming is a necessity of life? It's not like "simply never go swimming" is such a crazy, out-of-this-world suggestion like growing all your own food, producing all your own goods, surviving in the wilderness, etc.
You just simply: never go swimming! It's as easy as never going biking, never going canoeing, never going skydiving, etc.
Your "bucket list" might look like ____ compared to other worldly peoples' lists, but who cares? Catholics should only have ONE mandatory item on their bucket list, which is prioritized before all others:
[ ] Be found pleasing to God, blameless before Him, and in the State of Grace at the time of death
Everything else is just extra fluff.
If that item isn't checked off at death, it won't matter how many places on earth you've been, sites you've seen, experiences you've had, or anything like that. It will all be for naught if you find yourself in hell for eternity.
I'm sure heaven will be more fun than any swimming experience on earth.
So, by this standard, we'd be better off hiding in our closet all week and just showing up for Mass on Sunday, and then going home.
Otherwise we'd be a home-aloner, and everyone knows that's no good.
Then we could check off that item at our death, and go to heaven.
