Short Summary

Chris is a relatively normal 42-year-old who receives an unexpected diagnosis, and when the shock wears off decides to take some deserving people with him, and he makes a list. Later, he wonders if they made a mistake in the lab, but he's in too deep and doesn't want to find out.

Chris has addressed his list with mixed results. There have been a few revisions, a few mistakes and a couple of asterisks applied. The story concludes with Chris, after tracking down the guy who raped his sister 30 years ago, having lunch with Ray, who was on the list but worked his way off it.
