Things I've Never Done

Most people have done a variety of things which I haven't done. That is not to say I'm an odd ball. I just haven't done some of the things the average person has done. On the other hand, I have done many things that the average person hasn't done. Therefore, I guess we are even.

I haven't done some of these things because I haven't had an interest in doing them, and some of them I just haven't gotten around to doing. Don't laugh when you read my list. I'm sure you could come up with a list of your own that would be just as funny.

Revmjm this an interesting list. And I am surprised that you have not done many of the things on the list. But on the other hand, it good you have not had to undergo some of the things on the list, especially in the health wellness section.

A delightful read, and something to think about. Vote Up! Now get out and have some fun!

Treasuresofheaven, I'm sure you are surprised that I have not done some of the things that the average person has done. On the other hand, I have done many things that the average person has not dared to do. So the two lists balance themselves out.

I am taking your advice and shutting down my computer this afternoon to have some fun!

I am surprised that you have not done some of the things like lost your house keys, this is more common than uncommon, at least I believe, but I have done many things on the list and some of the things I have not and most of them I enjoyed when I was doing it.

PROGERS, yes it is surprising that some of the things I haven't done, but that's okay because surely I have done some things that make me "average."

Thanks for reading and responding.

revmjm: there are many things of your list that I have and have not done. I will trust God to lead me to the things that need doing, and hold me back from those that don't need doing.

No chap stick?! How do you keep your lips mositurized? :) I enjoyed reading this. Makes me think about some of my own. Here's a good one: Most people have skipped a college class. I never once skipped a class while in college :) Call me a nerd...but I wanted to get my money's worth :)

Amanda, I don't use chap stick because I use an expensive lipstick when I go out. I use Mac lipstick. I was afraid to skip college classes; so I didn't cut any classes either.

Thanks for responding.
