I've never done " "

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Today's entry was inspired by a show I sort of have on in the background each morning before I go to work. They were talking about things they have never done but most people their age had. It was surprising to hear that someone had never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or never had a cup of coffee. Some of these things I just took for granted, like driving a stick shift car and riding a bicycle. Yes those are things that some of the people on this show had never done.

So it made me think of the things I've never done in my life. Let me qualify this by saying just because I haven't done the things on this list doesn't mean I want to.

  • I've never gone skiing. Most people in this area learn to ski in their teens when they go to the mountains during High School breaks. By the time I was old enough to go skiing, my feet were too large to easily get ski rental boots.

  • I've never smoked a cigarette. Coming from a non-smoking house I was quite against it because it was so foreign to me.

  • Never went to a bar and had a shot. Never uttered the words "bartender, I'll have shot of (insert any hard liqueur) As most of my friends know I'm not a drinker of alcoholic beverages because of taste really. The whole "I'll have a martini" or so many drinks that sounded to cool to order in movies are better in theory.

  • Never sang Karaoke probably because of the previous statement. I'm sure many of you also have never sang Karaoke either but probably because of other reasons.

    Do you have anything like this in your life history? Something you just never did?
Earlier today I rode the bike over to a Monthly event that I just found about a few weeks ago. While looking at musical instruments on Craigslist I saw an advert for a monthly musicians swap meet for Los Angeles and Orange County. Not knowing what to expect but hoping for the best I was pleasently surprised. I didn't buy anything but it was fun to look around at all the equipment.

One last note, our quaint little town just opened the new Library and to replace the original one that was outgrown. I know we will be going there a lot in the future just because of the open space and increased facilities at our disposal.


  1. I went skiing--once. I was 19 and learned that day that knees don't swivel. Several surgeries later it's still not right.
    It's kind of interesting to think of things I've never done, because at this point in my life I've done so much! Guess I'll have to look at my list again and see what's left!
    By the way, good to see you back blogging again! We've also missed you over at Plurk.

  2. It's great to see you blogging again. I've missed reading your Plurks, too.

    I'm glad to hear so many wonderful things have been happening in your life.

    As for things I've never done, skiing and flying are both on my list. I don't plan to do the first and have no immediate plans for the second. :)

    Hope to see you on Plurk again soon.

  3. It is interesting to think about the things you have never done, wished you had done or have no desire to do. And just think, there are people who will never knit because they don't think they can.

    Welcome back. It is good to see you here.
