I Have Never…

I Have Never...

I love this type of topic for a writing prompt. It really covers everything. Or nothing. I guess. Depends what you have and haven’t done.


I Have Never…


One thing I left out of my post last week about Aussies & Alcohol is that I have extra trouble understanding a boozey, bingey culture because I’ve never had a hangover.


I feel like people never believe me when I say that. But it’s true. I have always had a natural stopping point where I cease drinking and feel normal the next day.


I Have Never...


And now, to round it out, a list of random things I have never…

  • Eaten a frog
  • Drank dirt
  • Kissed a cat
  • Ironed anything
  • Driven a car other than the driving school and my own*
  • Flown in a private plane
  • Gone skydiving

*Ok, I drove my mother in law’s car once or twice when she was teaching me to drive but it blew up and then I never drove it again.


And one weird thing I have done:

Bought a stuffed toy when I felt really miserable. Apparently I regress to a toddler when going through a hard time.


What is something you’ve never done?

      Any plans to nab either of the two? 🙂

  3. Hundr3ds – jet packing is a new thing I haven’t nor ever will do.
    I’ve kissed many cats but never a frog.

      Oh I’d be kind of interested to try it! But also scared.

  4. I’ve never had a tattoo. Plus, I’ve never done any of those things on your list either. I’ve had a hangover maybe twice in 45 years. Plus I can tell you that chemo feels a bit like permanently having the mother of all hangovers. So yes, I agree, WHY would you do that to yourself?

      I’ve never understood the hangover thing. I miss an hour of sleep and I feel like shit, I can’t imagine a hangover. Chemo sounds dreadful 🙁

  5. I’m impressed that you have never ironed anything – I would be quite proud of that one!!!!

      I really am! I just don’t understand the point of it. And any time anyone has ironed for me it creases by the time I sit in a car or train or bus so…again…the point? Will never understand. Thankfully I don’t own iron-needing clothing.

  6. It’s quite impressive in our boozy culture that you’ve never had a hangover. I’ve never eaten a frog either and I don’t think I could get past thinking about how slimy they are!

      I do like a drink, but I guess not as much as other people?

  7. They are certainly very random things. I can’t say I’ve ever drank dirt or eaten a frog. Not sure if a tiny little plane big enough to fit the pilot, me, my husband and our suitcases counts as a private plane? Whatever it is, it was quite a nerve-wracking flight!
