I feel blah. I'm getting sick. I have a sore throat, a slight cough and a little bit of congestion. These things combine together to make me feel like whining and being generally cranky. But instead of indulging in my misery, I give you a list of "nevers."

  • I have never smoked.
  • I have never been to a professional football game.
  • I have never been to New York.
  • I have never liked lima beans.
  • I have never been kissed.
  • I have never gone sailing.
  • I have never seen The Goonies.
  • I have never wanted to go to Las Vegas.
  • I have never been to Disneyworld.
  • I have never watched a horror movie.
  • I have never been skiiing.
  • I have never broken a bone.
  • I have never learned to roller skate.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that doesn't know how to roller skate ;). I hope you start feeling better.

I had almost done all the things you've never done... until I got to the broken bone. Praise the Lord I have never had a broken bone either. :-)

You should definitely watch The Goonies and give kissing a whirl. Both well worth the time spent.

Laurie, what a wonderfully fascinating person you are! I too have never smoked, been to a professional football game, been to New York, liked lima beans, gone sailing, wanted to go to Las Vegas, or been skiing (two Is, I think!).

That being said, let me fill ya in on my experiences with the others:
Kissing ... definitely great.
The Goonies ... not too shabby (Truffle Shuffle!).
Disneyworld ... still fun as an adult.
Horror movies ... definitely not worth the time.
Breaking a bone ... not so great x2.
Roller skating ... so junior high. :)

Get lots of rest and feel better soon! :)

Shoot for the kissing. The rest are just what you do when you don't have anyone to kiss.

So I guess you're not getting much action from the romance with Dennis then, eh?

Well, he can be shy...just give him some time.

Laurie said...

Your comment was priceless. I hope Dennis doesn't read this. He'll be so embarrassed that I've revealed so much about our relationship.

I just realized I spelled "skiing" with three i's. I'm going to leave it that way. Maybe people will think it's the Scandinavian version.

I would love to try the whole kissing thing. Unfortunately, it takes two, Baby.

Volunteers, anyone? ;)
