17. Attend a NASCAR race.
No, I'm not joking. My sister attended her first (of many to come, I assume) NASCAR race this past weekend and had the time of her life! At first I was thinking "why the heck would you want to do that?" and then I realized that she was attending an event that would entail everything that is good and right about America and more specifically, the South. We're talking tailgating, beer drinking, jorts, cut off tees (eek!), boom boxes, people passionate about cars racing in a circle, good ol' boys, good ol' gals (?), cornhole, BBQ, rat tails (yesssss!), people who are genuinely nice and real excited to be there. In all seriousness, I think it would be a lot of fun to attend at least one race. And tailgating would be a must. Duh.
Side note: A couple months ago I shamelessly sang karaoke in front of a group of people (with Abby!). The song: I Got Friends in Low Places by Garth Brooks. So, check.
