My Addition for the Tenth of Fulghum's Recommendations

I'm almost finished reading one of Fulghum's books entitled It was on Fire When I Lay Down on It. I just need more time to read it when I have lunch or break time at work. 
I found something interesting on page 91-92. It caught my attention and stimulated a new idea. He offered Fulghum's Recommendations. He wrote nine and was still working on tenth. Meanwhile waiting for him to work on the tenth, I had an idea to add my own on his:

1. Buy lemonade from any kid who is selling;
2. Anytime you can vote on anything, vote;
3. Attend the twenty-fifth reunion of your high school class;
4. Choose having time over having money;
5. Always take the scenic route;
6. Give at least something to any beggar who asks;
7. And give money to all street musicians;
8. Always be someone's valentine;
9. When the circus comes to town, be there;
10. Attend any book events that you are invited by author himself/herself if you don't work or have any other things to do, especially if the place of its event isn't far away from your house.***
