This week is dragging on for me. I hope it’s going a little quicker for you (if that’s your prerogative). In less than two weeks I will be relaxing on vacation so it’s a challenge to focus right now. I promise I’m trying to live in the now 😉
Today’s post was half inspired by Rebecca Jo’s post and half inspired by the juvenile game (or drinking game) of “Never Have I Ever.” And in this version I get to keep all my fingers up and I don’t have to throw back any shots of alcohol. If you’ve ever played the game, you understood that.
So basically this is just a weird “about me” post… Just in case you don’t know enough already. Ha.
Never have I ever… had my ears pierced. When I was 10 my mom took me to get them done for my birthday but I totally chickened out and started crying as soon as the needle gun thingy was at my head. At that moment I lost all interest in ear jewelry.
Never have I ever… been to Mexico. I’ve been to Europe and India and the Bahamas and Canada, but I’ve never been to Mexico. Between the heat and the cartel and the zika I don’t have any immediate travel plans 😉
Never have I ever… gone on a blind date. I started dating K just after my seventeenth birthday. I had one serious boyfriend prior to K (UGH) and a few high school flings, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to go on a blind date. If I were single I don’t know that I’d go on one anyway… I’ve seen way too many episodes of Criminal Minds.
Never have I ever… been in a physical fight. I once got mad enough to sucker-punch a friend but K (who I was not dating at the time) caught my arm mid-air and restrained me from throwing a punch.
Never have I ever… bought a lottery ticket. Or visited an “adult video store.” Or gambled. Or any of that stuff people do when they turn 18. Ha! Actually, I didn’t even order an alcoholic beverage on my 21st birthday! I got a Shirley Temple.
Never have I ever… gotten a speeding ticket. I’m sure I’ve jinxed myself now. The first time it happens I know I’ll cry- even though I’ll deserve it. Haha. I was cited for ‘failure to control’ but I still think that was total b.s. It was black ice and I totaled my car and I totally could’ve used some mercy from the officer. (I later heard that he regretted being so harsh. I forgive him.)
Never have I ever… had braces. I know a lot of people haven’t, but I’ve been complimented before on my braces work because my teeth are super straight! That gives me some joy since I have over 9 fillings in my mouth from cavities. I’ll take what I can get. (I promise I brush & floss… I just have teeth that are close together and sensitive gums.)
Never have I ever… been hospitalized overnight. When I snapped my leg it was at night and we were at the hospital until the wee hours of the morning, but I’ve never been admitted.
Maybe none of these things make me unique… Ha! Maybe you have one that sets you apart from everyone else! What have you never done??
