no no never never uh uh uh

Today’s Reverb prompt: List 10 things you would never do.

Well this could be fun. Here goes:

1. Be a hardcore sports fan. I do my best to support my husband in his addiction hobby, but it will never be my hobby. Sorry, babe.

2. Go bungee jumping. This was not on my life list for a reason. I can hardly handle jumping on our trampoline because it feels like my brain is bouncing around in my skull. There’s no way I’d do something like that upside-down. My brother did it when he lived in New Zealand and I’m completely okay with him being the only one in our family who has done it. Edited to add: my other brother’s wife commented that he had done it too. I thought I remembered him doing it, but I wasn’t sure. So, apparently the boys in our family are the dare-devils and us girls are completely okay with that. (Right, Erica?!)

3. Choose to vacation somewhere cold. This is self-explanatory, no?

4. Go streaking. Unlike my four-year-old, I like clothes. Lots of them. The more clothes the better.

5. See a scary/horror movie in a theatre. Or, really, at all. Anywhere. Noah loves scary/suspense/horror movies and this is why Talitha (his sister) has to move here so that he has someone to watch them with.

6. Say “no” to someone who offers to buy me my dream camera. What? It’s only a couple grand over our family Christmas gift exchange limit.

7. Not laugh out loud at an episode of Friends. I think it’s time to start at Season 1 and watch them all the way through again. I do it annually.

8. Sing a solo. Or, sing in front of people at all. It’s for their own good.

9. Become a gamer. I can only take about 10 minutes of video games every couple months. And only on old-school consoles. I miss the Atari.

10. Subject myself to the Rocky movies. Sorry, Noah.

This was much harder than I thought. Apparently there’s not a lot I wouldn’t do, although Kaylie threw out “Jump into a volcano! Name your child Vixen! Have a pet giraffe!”

    Horror movies are not for me either. I, uh, get scared of the villains in CARTOONS.

  • Eryn Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 6:19 pm

    Atari…..ahhh the memories

  • Ashley Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 6:30 pm

    Great list! Also, I’m with you on the Rocky movies but I’d have to add Rambo. I grew up where the first one was filmed and Stallone kinda makes me wish he’d been blown up with the bridge…

  • Jess Banks Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 6:32 pm

    Amen on the scary movies. I’ve got this whole frotzed reaction problem I call my Boo Response. I even blogged about it: http://profbanks.com/?p=84

    Brandon says he also has gone bungee jumping. It was at West Ed Mall. So I guess your brothers lean towards the crazy end of the spectrum :P And I’m totally with you on the like wearing clothing thing. Even in the summer I feel exposed without a blanket across my lap.

  • Julia Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 6:57 pm

    Minus number one, I am with you all the way!

  • Elsa Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 6:57 pm

    I’m curious…what’s your dream camera??? I will never see a horror movie in the theater either.

  • Becca Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 7:11 pm

    I would totally have a pet giraffe.

  • bethany actually Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 7:53 pm

    “Name your child Vixen,” HAHAHAHA. Kaylie’s funny. :-)

  • bethany actually Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 7:57 pm

    Did you know Sylvester Stallone wrote the original screenplay for the first “Rocky,” and that he was nominated for the Academy Award that year for lead actor and original screenplay!?

  • Kassie Tuesday, December 6, 2011, 11:01 pm

    I love a good horror movie, Vixen would be scary and awesome, and the Rocky movies are just lame. I don’t get it.

  • Kami Wednesday, December 7, 2011, 9:26 am

    I love Kaylie’s additions! Funny girl!

    I wouldn’t do many of these things either, except maybe bungee jumping…or skydiving. But not upside down bungee jumping because I am pretty sure that would messy.

    I”m just asking that you reconsider the cold vacation. I went on an Alaskan cruise ten years ago and it was the most fabulous vacation ever. Seriously. And there were even warm moments.

  • Kristan Monday, December 12, 2011, 3:04 pm

    You’re missing out on the Rocky movies….seriously, SO GOOD!
