I’ve never

July 13, 2009

I’m completely ripping this off from Pete’s blog, but I liked the idea!

After a week off from the blog, everybody needs a little time to reacquaint ourselves relationally.  This blog also gets about 200 hits/day and most of us don’t know each other that well!  Let’s play a little “I’ve Never”.  I’ll say something I’ve never done and you follow suit, hoping to one-up us or at least make us giggle.  I’ll get us kicked off.

I’ve never…

  • eaten a tomato
  • stayed the night in a hospital
  • seen an episode of ER, MASH, or The Brady Bunch

Feel free to play as many times as you want.  Your turn…

    I’ve Never: (and at my age this is harder than for some of our younger folks)
    – Gone scuba diving (it is on my list)
    – Taken Susan to Europe (a little bit of a cheat but is on my list)
    – Hiked the grand canyon (yep on the list)
    – Had a bad day with one of our children (I am so very lucky!)

    The list could go on but I don’t want to bore you.

    p.s. I guess there’s two kinds of “I’ve never’s…” —
    1) I’ve never, and it’s for a reason, and
    2) I’ve never, but it’s on my list

    Even though I lived 30 miles outside of NY City for 9 years….I have never been to the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade and I have never been to a Broadway show.

    I’ve never…

    Broken a bone
    Lived North of the Carolinas (unless you count in utero)
    snow skied, like Beth, someday though.
    eaten a peach with the skin on

    @ Josh, are you saying you’ve never eaten a plain jane tomato? Because I’m pretty sure I cut up a tomato into that spaghetti sauce forever ago.

    @ Lance, I really like your list. It’s not boring at all. Can you take us all to Europe, The Grand Canyon, and scuba diving when you go? Sounds like a TON of fun!

    @ Shelly, glad that you don’t know what you’re missing with Big Mac’s. When I was pg with Grace, they were my downfall. They are on my favorites list. And I’ve never owned a cat either. Don’t plan to!
