22 Things I’ve Never Done

***I’m 37 and I’ve never:

Kissed my husband at the top of the Eiffel tower.

Wandered through a field of sunflowers.

Played in the snow.

Taken a gourmet cooking class (preferably in Italy or France).

Mastered walking in stilettos.

Officially learned how to surf.

Been published in a national magazine.

Built a bonfire on the beach.

Drunk a bottle of wine costing more than $50.

Cruised the Pacific Coast Highway in a sports car or convertible, preferably.

Been pampered with a massage or facial.

Caught dinner and a show on Broadway.

Been inked.

Bought an expensive designer purse.

Learned to like sushi.

Stared a great white shark in the eye (from inside a strong, steel cage, of course).

Watched orcas breech and porpoise in a frigid sound.

Jumped into a pile of crimson and bronze fall leaves (then raked them up again).

Danced at a masked ball.

Savored a twelve course tasting menu.

Snuggled up with my son in a tent in the woods and protected him from things that go bump in the night.

Finished my damn novel.

**Now Mama Kat and the Pioneer Woman came up with this great list. But while I pondered some of the things I someday want to do, I was thinking about all the cool things I HAVE done.

So I’m going to start a meme for that, so we can feel good about what we have achieved in our short lifetimes.

Come back here next Tuesday and link up 22 Things I HAVE Done.  Have you run a marathon? Perfected the snow angel? Eaten octopus? We want to know.

    I have played in snow and jumped in leaves but I am with you on the rest! Although, you have far more courage than I if you actually want to look a shark in the eye . . . even if it is behind a nice strong cage.

    I have an affliction – may I call it that – for expensive handbags. I love this list and you need tattoo. I posted my 22 things i have done last night with my MamaKat prompt as that was a fun list to write!

    There are a lot of things I haven't done, but I've saved my daughter's life alone, and that pretty much shadows out all those pesky things I wish I could be doing for me.

    How fun! I didn't join in this time. Definitely worth your time to get a massage! A facial? Eh, it's okay, but I wasn't overly thrilled with it and didn't look any better afterwards.

    Well you and I are both teetering around this world because I really don't know how to walk properly in heels either. I bought some gorgeous 4 inch platforms last fall and every time I wear them I feel like a giraffe on roller skates.

    Loved reading your list! Just posted my too and I can't wait to link up with your Things I Have Done next week. Making the never list did a really good job of making me remember some of the incredible things I've been lucky enough to do.

    And you really must correct that massage item! With all the Groupons, Living Social deals, etc. out there, it's worth trying it. Health insurance companies really need to start covering them! I had one facial once and I agree with your commenter above — save your money. Until I'm deciding between that and a major facelift someday (kidding, I hope), I don't think I'll get another one. But a massage? I could have one every day for the rest of my life and still not get enough.
