from the text by Isabel Coixet:
Things to do before I die:
One. Tell my daughters I love them several times a day.
Two. Find Don a new wife whom the girls like.
Three. Record birthday messages for the girls until they’re eighteen.
Four. Make love with other men to see what it’s like.
Five. Make someone fall in love with me.
And do something with my hair.
