10 Things We Never Did and Never Will Do!

We would never . . .
  1. get a tattoo.  (although I thought they were cool when I was a kid)
  2. Ride a motorcycle.  (Always thought these were dangerous.)
  3. Get body piercings.  (Really think these look ugly!)
  4. Smoke.  (As a kid, I used to pretend once in awhile with crayons.  Sometimes I had candy cigarettes but not often.  That's the closest I ever came.)
  5. Go to Las Vegas to gamble.  (No desire to ever do this.)
  6. Parachute.  (At one point, I thought it would be fun but I've changed my mind.)
  7. Buy a farm.  (Too much work).
  8. Buy a boat, go snorkeling.  (We are not water people.)
  9. Get drunk.  (Never!  I have a hard enough time functioning and remembering things when sober.)
  10. Go to a NASCAR race and probably not even watch one on TV.  (Just no interest here, although when I was a kid I used to watch stock car races on TV sometimes.)
What are some things you would never do?

This post was inspired by Mama Kat's writers workshop prompt: List 22 things you never did. (I shortened it just 10, you're welcome!)

My list would look pretty much like yours I think.

I did buy a pack of cigarettes once when I was in high school and they only cost about 35 cents a pack. Even then I thought it was a big waste of money. I was mad at my mom. I finally confessed it to her about 40 years later and she busted out laughing at me. Love you, mom.

I wouldn't get a tattoo either.

I've ridden a motorcycle. Awesome fun.

I have pierced ears. One hole in each ear. Love it.

I smoked but quit long ago. I enjoyed smoking.

Las Vegas is an adult theme park. You don't have to gamble. It's amazing.

I was raised on a farm and it's a lot of work.

I LOVE boating and all things nautical.

I've been drunk and had a fabulous time. I enjoy cocktail hour to this day.

NASCAR? Not for me either.

Have a terrific day. :)

1. I wouldn't get a tattoo because of the pain.
2. My dad had a motorcycle and I loved riding it.
3. My ears are pierced.
4. I can't stand the smell of smoke.
5. There's way more to Vegas than gambling so I do enjoy going there. Plus my mom lives there.
6. No way would I jump out of a plane! Or off a bridge or anything!
7. I'd have a house on acreage with a big garden but that's about it.
8. I love, love, love to go boating and snorkeling! I love anything to do with water!
9. I don't think I'd ever do it again but I was a wild child! :)
10. I love watching NASCAR and have been to several races.

11. I'll never go camping in a tent. Have to have walls, electricity, bathroom, bed and a locked door for me!

I have to agree with most of your will never do's. But I have done most of them. The only one I will still do is going boating and go snorkeling.

I will probably NEVER adopt seafood as part of my diet.

1. Don't like tattoos either. I still think they are "trashy".
3. Same thing for piercings...trashy. Well, except for my earlobes. They are not trashy.
4. Tried it, hated it.
5. Not into Vegas. I have no want to go there.
6. Too scared. I'm a big chicken to parachute or bungee jump.
7. I'd love the space. I don't have any here.
8. Ugh. I get really seasick--no boat. I threw up on my friend Wendy's new boat. They did not like that.
9. I've been known to tip a few back. As long as I'm not driving, I enjoy a cocktail or two.
10. No NASCAR or golf outings for me. Snooze-fest.

I'll never go on a cruise--it would drive me crazy to be stuck on that darn boat.
And I'll never pose naked for Playboy. Not that they would want me to. :)

1. I don't have any tattoos. I actually would not mind having ONE...SMALL one though. I have to admit I kind of think one or two on a guy is cool. (Not too many though)

2. I rode on the back of one once many years ago but that is it.

3. I had my ears pierced but they no longer are. I would get it done again. Don't think I would ever get any other piercings though.

4. I am so glad I never started smoking, the price alone of them now makes me glad. My husband smokes, I don't give him a hard time. It is his choice but I do kind of wish he would quit for his health.

5. If it wasn't so expensive maybe!

6. No interest in ever doing that AT ALL!

7. I live on a farm, I love it and it would break my heart if I ever had to move back to town!

8. Water does make me nervous but fishing would be cool too! Maybe.

9. I have been drunk a few times in the past. I partied way less than most when I was younger though!

10. It isn't something I am going to sit there and watch on tv, but yea I would go to a NASCAR race...better than watching golf I guess!

#9 made me laugh :)

Can you believe they used to have candy cigarettes? Times have changed. Thanks for stopping by my blog, returning the favor!

Soccer Mom said...

I used to get candy cigarettes from the ice cream man all the time (why would my parents let me have these??). I never smoked as a habit though!

There isn't much I would never do ... except leave my kids behind. Other than that I'm kind of adventurous if I have someone with me to do it too :)

Visiting from Mama Kat!

I like to never say never. I've been known to be surprised in life and have journeyed down some paths I had not predicted I'd take. But, with that said, I *suspect* I'll never parachute or bungee jump. Funny thing is, I love to fly, but am not fond of heights! lol Thanks for visiting me today! :>
