I never . . .

When I was in college, I remember playing a game called, "I never," where we sat in a circle and each person went around and said something she had never done (don't worry, it didn't get too personal). If the other people in the group had done the thing she'd never done, they had to put a penny in the middle. The person with the most pennies at the end was the winner.
Well, Daniel did something today that I've never done: He got braces! He got through it fine and doesn't seem to fazed by having all that metal in his mouth. I'm actually a little envious of the coolness factor, but not enough to plunk down thousands of dollars to get some of my own!
Some other things I've never done are:
  • watched an entire Star Wars movie
  • been snow skiing
  • ridden a motorcycle
  • toured Graceland
  • been kissed (ha! just kidding!)

So, anyone want to play? Post something that you've never done and see if you can stump me or anyone else who might want to play!

Nanette... how can this be?

Nanette R. said...

I knew that would get a rise out of some people, but I have a very limited scope of what entertains me. If it's not a "feel good, happily ever after, chick flick" it's probably not been my favorite.

Shanna Bauman said...

Nanette, I've never ridden a motorcycle, watched an entire Star Wars movie or toured Graceland either!! Here's our plan - let's hop on a motorcycle headed for Memphis. We'll tour Elvis's home and then that night in the hotel watch a Star Wars movie!

NAH - doesn't sound too much fun!! Let's think of something else to do!

Nanette R. said...

I'd be up for a roadtrip to Memphis, in a car, and a tour of Graceland and then we could watch a chick flick in the hotel that night. Sounds like fun!

been perky
not been a Texan (that was for Jeanettey)
not been able to sin

Well, I seem to be the only one who has been to Graceland. I'll chalk that up as a great life accomplishment. Furthermore, I can't remember a time I had NOT watched all the Star Wars movies. Pretty sure I must have been teeny tiny when I first saw them! :)

Nanette R. said...

This is fun! I think I need to toss in some virtual pennies, though! I owe three each for Jeanette and Kristi's rounds and quite a few for Robin. I still like Shanna's idea of a road trip to Memphis! :-)

Katie Thompson said...

Am I too late? This was my favorite game in youth group! I've never:
-had a tattoo, not even temporary
-had braces!
-enjoyed Monty Python
-colored my hair (...yet)
-seen Sponge Bob
-sung karaoke

Katie Thompson said...

Oh yeah, I've been in Graceland, and I can't even talk to you about the Star Wars thing...I love you anyway.

Kristi said...

katie, no Monty Python??? they are an acquired taste, but so worth it! oh i love them so. let's make nanette watch some star wars... the early stuff, not this later malarkey. :)
