Common bucket list items: see the Eiffel Tower, ride in a helicopter, run a marathon.

Not so common bucket list item? Get arrested.

But, that’s precisely what sat on top of a 99-year-old named Annie’s list: “Experience a police cell from within.”

Annie’s niece contacted officers in the Dutch town of Nijmegan-Zuid to tell them about her aunt’s dream.

There was a problem, though.

“Civilians are not allowed inside an area with cells,” the police said on Facebook.

But, how could you say no to such an odd request? An officer named Maarten bent the rules and “arranged a visit for Annie (very exceptional) in a dwell chamber.”

And, Annie got the full effect: she was picked up by the police, cuffed and locked up.

She had the time of her life.

Although the request might seem uncommon, it’s not the first time someone has asked to be thrown in the slammer for the fun of it.

Last year, Edie Simms, a 102-year-old woman in St. Louis, had her dream come true when – upon request – police officers arrested her at the senior center where she delivered her handmade scarves and pot holders.

Annie and Edie, though unusual, know how to have a little fun.
