One of my favorite posts I've written is the Never Ever Have I Ever post from last year. Immediately after I posted it I came up with a couple more items to add to the list so I started a drafting a part 2 right away. 18 months later, I finally have a list long enough to share. I cannot come up with even one more "never". But how much ya wanna bet I'll come up with a couple as soon as I hit that publish button?
Anyway, if you are unfamiliar, this comes from a drinking game where you take a sip every time someone says something they've never done that you HAVE done. So I've never smoked a cigarette but if you have then you would take a sip of your drink. Got it? Ok. Get your drink ready and here goes.
Never ever have I ever....
...smoked a cigarette.
...had mastitis or a clogged duct.
...been scuba diving.
...gone for a test drive. (bought lots of cars - never wanted to test drive them)
...been to a counselor or therapist.
...been to a chiropractor.
...eaten with chopsticks.
...had a sinus infection.
...been to a rap concert.
...been to a strip club.
...paddle boarded or surfed.
...shot a gun.
...been house shopping with a realtor a la House Hunters. (I've always wanted to though!)
...been to a major league soccer game.
...been to a state fair. Plenty of local fairs, never to THE state fair in any state.
...had an ingrown toenail.
...bobbed for apples.
...attended a protest.
...milked a cow.
...received an "F" as a grade.
...rode a unicycle.
...dyed my own hair.
...gambled in a casino.
...hired a babysitter that wasn't family or a close friend.
...been to the movies in 2016.
How did you do? Can you even read these words any longer? Nice and tipsy for a Tuesday evening?
It took me a year and a half to come up with this second list, so I think next time I need to list weird things I have done so I don't seem as sheltered and inexperienced as these "never" lists make me sound. I've done things! Really! I have! Once I went swimming...WITHOUT waiting 30 minutes after I ate.
