Because I Couldn't Come Up With 20

Get a roll of pennies ready and play "I Have Never" with me. Throw in a penny for every one of these you've done, but I haven't.

I have never had even one itsy bitsy sip of coffee.

I have never experienced labor.

I have never been in a car accident.

I have never played golf. (But I've driven a golf cart. On a golf course. In the dark....)

I have never eaten sushi.

I have never, even in college, drunk so much alcohol that I got sick. (See my aversion to getting sick here).  

I have never mowed a lawn.

I have never changed a tire.

I have never smoked a cigarette. (I PRETENDED to occasionally, to look cool, but I just held it and waved it around.)

I have never gotten a speeding ticket.

I have never shoplifted, although someone I was with took a pair of patterned tights that I wanted to buy and stuck them in a shopping bag and walked out of the department store with them, because she didn't want to take the time for me to wait in line to buy them. I was MORTIFIED and sure the Shoplifting Police were going to find me. I was so shaken up by it that, as I was putting the tights on later that day to wear to a concert, I stuck my thumbnail through them and ruined them, then had to return to the department store and actually BUY a pair, WHICH IS WHAT I WAS TRYING TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I have never eaten a s'more. (I like the individual components, but I don't want to eat them all together. Except I like Moon Pies, so that doesn't really make a lot of sense.)

I have never owned a dog.

I have never learned to swim.

I have never had a pedicure.

I have never seen the Hornet Spook Light. I've never even TRIED to see the Hornet Spook Light.

Anybody have any pennies left? (Shout out to Donna, Jennifer and Amy with a big "I doubt it.") Go ahead and challenge me.


  1. 3....THREE! Never shoplifted, never seen the spooklight and never played golf. You need to eat some sushi and get your toes done girlie!

    1. The thought of either sushi or a pedicure kind of gross me out equally.

  2. I thought it was only going to be two until you kicked in the smores and the spooklight.

    1. Come visit and we can knock spook light off the list. Still don't want to eat a s'more.

  3. I'm broke. ;)

  4. What in the world is the Hornet Spook Light? I have 4 left. No need to eat a s'more. I have eaten a few, but they aren't my favorite. Stick with the moon pies.

    1. I should have posted a link to that. If you aren't from Joplin, you won't know what it is.


      I DO like moon pies....
