What are some things you’ve never done?




    1. Thanks, Kathy! It was so much fun to make this list. Just thinking about what I haven’t done and some things I might like to do.


  1. Very fun post. I’ve never played angry birds, and have no desire to. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are many things I’ve never done, and many I still plan to do.


    1. I don’t really have a desire to play Angry Birds either, but I know so many people who are just addicted to it. I wonder why! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for stopping by!


    1. Please do! It would be so fun to read your list.
      You have an advantage on # 19 with MEH. I bet he could break it down for you. When he does, maybe you could help me out. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Great post! And never mowed?? How does this happen? What’s your secret?? Actually, I don’t mind mowing, ๐Ÿ˜€
    I can nod my head in agreement to many of your “never dones”. Now go do some skinny dipping! (this is off my list – an advantage of living next to a creek out of town as a kid:)


    1. I think I wouldn’t mind mowing either. I could totally get in the zone, but I live in the city – no lawn to mow I’m afraid. And no creek to go skinny dipping in. I’m going to have to trip out your way. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Funny… I got loads as well.
    I never
    Owned a donkey
    Learned Japanese
    Got into the Vatican
    Published a book
    Didn’t say what I was thinking when it might have been better not to
    Was red haired
    Adopted a child
    Slapped my boss
    Left out coffee in the morning
    Ate half a pack of popcorn
    Wore white socks


    1. Those are some great ones, Caroline! Thanks for adding your list.
      I have never left out coffee in the morning either. And I hope I never have to.


  4. It’s kind of fun looking at these lists and seeing what I actually have done and what I haven’t. For example, from your original list I haven’t done # 1, 6, 8, 11 (I’ve given up hope). 12. 14, 19. I’ve never had surgery like Kathy. I’ve never owned a donkey, gone to the vatican, officially published a book (unless dissertations count), adopted a child, or slapped my boss. I think I’ve done everything else mentioned so far.


    1. It was a fun list to write. Of course there are many other things I haven’t done ;), but these are the ones that came to mind right away.
      I think we should both keep hope that we’ll be Freshly Pressed someday!


  5. What a great list! I don’t even know what some of the things on it are. What’s Angry Birds? (Ha! You thought I’d say string theory, din’cha?) You’ve NEVER cleaned your fridge? Seriously? I want to know how you get around that.
    I saw RHPS as a live play in Berkeley when I was 17. It was amazing. And weird too…kinda scared me, actually.
    I’ve never been to South America either, or gotten a Brazilian wax.


    1. Actually I’ve never cleaned behind my fridge. Though I’d be lying if I said that there aren’t a few moldy experiments inside the fridge too.
      You saw RHPS in Berkeley when you were 17? I’m so impressed! You’re my hero!


      1. Oh, BEHIND the fridge…how did I miss that? (Reading and replying to blogs while at work…not recommended.) You had me excited there…thinking there was some way to get out of cleaning the inside. LOL!
        Wish I could say RHPS makes me really cool, but someone else bought me the tickets for my birthday, and I had no idea what we were going to see. (Was I ever surprised!)


  6. What fun! I also feel a little more comfortable with myself, as I haven’t done many of the things you mentioned. Though I have eaten an entire box of Thin Mints in one sitting. You’re shocked, I’m sure. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Lenore, I would be much more shocked if you said that you’ve never eaten an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know your love for the ice cream!


    1. I’ll accept a 75% understanding of string theory, but as far as #14 goes I have it on good authority that you keep a copy on your coffee table to impress your guests. I’m doing the same. I’ll let you know if anyone is duly impressed.


  7. Love this idea. I just uploaded War and Peace on my Kindle, so MAYBE I’ll finally read it.
    Can’t believe you’ve never mown grass! I had to do it when I was a teenager and what a pain. So glad we have a lawn service now.
    I’ve done #2,3,5,7,8,9,11,13,15,17 &18, but don’t yet have a clear understanding of string theory. I like reading about it, though.
    I think it’s a travesty that you’ve haven’t been Freshly Pressed yet.


    1. a Kindle is the perfect way to read War and Peace. That is one heavy book to lug around! I’m thinking about reading it. Does that count? ๐Ÿ™‚
