Things I've Never Done (Or Don't Envision Myself Doing)

At our very first MOPS meeting for the year we played Never Have I Ever.  It was fun, although I had quite the brain cramp trying to think of things I've never done.  And about 20 minutes after I left, I was flooded with tons of ideas.  Here are a few:

Ski
Spare me the lecture, because I know.  I am one who was born and raised in Colorado and still lives here, yet I've never been skiing.  The story goes that my parents weren't really into it, and we didn't have a lot of money when I was a kid, so naturally we just never went.  I'm sure money played into why I never made it on a youth group ski trip either (did we even have those?)  And now that I am a stay-at-home-mom, money still plays into why we don't go.  But also, I am not an outdoorsy, athletic person.  I'm not sure I'd like it, even if I did find the money to go.  If I ever try it someday, it will be to just get everyone off my back.

Order coffee at Starbucks
I have never ordered coffee at Starbucks, or any coffee shop for that matter.  I don't like coffee.  I worked at a coffee shop in college, and it smelled so amazing that I tried it on multiple occasions.  I spit it out every time.  When I go to Starbucks I choose a raspberry hot chocolate.  With whip, if I'm feeling fancy.  Now there is a delicious drink.

Own a Kitchen Aid mixer
This falls under the I Don't Envision Myself Doing category.  I really don't bake that often, so why would I get to have one of these?  And I certainly don't have the counter space.  But maybe I would bake more often if I had one.  Maybe I'd even get into baking bread.  But maybes aren't a good enough reason to invest in that kind of thing.  First world problem, right?

Run a marathon
Or half.  Or 5k.  I'm just not a runner.  I ran in college to complete the required phys ed credits, but I did NOT enjoy it.  The people who love it kind of baffle me.  Of course, so do the people who love exercise in general.  But I do not plan to ever run any kind of organized race. If I'm running I'm probably in trouble, so be kind and jump in to help out, would you?

I'm a homebody.  There is plenty more that I've never done.  But right now I don't feel burdened to do much else.
