A little bit of light relief, badly needed right now, thanks to a great idea from Jo at Ojo's World who realised how many things she has never done. Things that other people think are a normal part of life.
My rubbish memory means that some of you may be able to tell me that I'm wrong, but as far as I know, I have never done any of these...
Because it just seemed like too much hassle, all that equipment, training, injuries...
Taken my bra off before bedtime
Except for hygiene, medical or romantic reasons.
This is such a thing now. People announce it on Facebook and I don't get it at all. How would I send cold callers packing? Have any authority over my children? Deal with any situation that arises? TBH I would probably sleep fully clothed if I could get comfortable. Just in case.
Gone shoeless in the house outside of heatwaves
My feet get cold and my socks get wet, so why would I?
Even though I love France
Brought the kids to Disney Land
And I really don't want to, I think I would probably hate everything about it: the noise, the queues, the crowds, the fast food, the whole theme park thing.
Went on Honeymoon
Though I did get married!
Attended a Hurling or Gaelic Football match
Even though I live so close to the local stadium that I can hear the cheers on match day. Oh, the shame of it!
Told a secret
Well you don't, do you?
Worn red lipstick
Because it makes me look like I'm touting for business.
Been to Paris
Or Barcelona, or Berlin, or Boston. But one day I hope to get to these places and many more.
Owned a pair of leather trousers
I might have left this one a bit too late!
Had a manicure
I've still time to do this. Well I need to find the time, which is a bit harder to do.
I may detest and despise many laws, but I tend to obey them.
Been on a Ferris Wheel
Or any other fairground ride that goes up in the air. Even when I was young and fearless, I worried about loose bolts and rusty nuts.
Got to 40 weeks
All my pregnancies ended at 38 weeks or earlier.
So 'fess up, what have you never done?
