Thursday Thirteen #22

Welcome to my 22nd edition of Thursday Thirteen! Today's list is the opposite of a "bucket list." These are 13 things I will never voluntary do.

1. Have a snake as a household pet - Snakes give me the creeps. Growing up, we had friends that had a "pet" snake. I couldn't sleep in the same room with it. I will never willingly have a snake in my home.
2. Play with a frog or toad - A few years ago, I went to the back porch to put my shoes on, no socks. A toad had crawled in my shoe, and it was completely disgusting.
3. Watch any of the Saw movies -too creepy! I like mystery, suspense, adventure, and a little thrill, but I don't enjoy gratuitous blood and guts. Click the link (Saw) if you like that sort of thing.
4. Sky dive - I have no desire to jump out of an airplane with nothing but a parachute. It looks cool, but I don't want to do it.


5. Play paintball - I finally played laser tag for the first time in January, but I'm pretty sure you have to be in tip-top shape to play paintball, and it probably hurts when you get shots.
6. Get my PhD. - I'm content having my Master's in Education, and I may eventually get another one, but I don't see myself ever going for the Doctorate.
7. Rob a bank or convenience store - 1) It's morally wrong and 2) I'd get myself killed!
8. Eat cockroaches - Or scorpions, or goat eyeballs, like that crazy guy Andrew Zimmern on Food Network's Bizarre Food show. Don't know who he is? Consider yourself lucky! If you're curious, click on his name.
9. Bungee Jump - A little too adventurous for me. I saw a cartoon of Humpty Dumpty bungee jumping, and of course, he cracked his head open. I couldn't post it here because it was copyrighted, but surely that would happen to me.
10. Ride the Boardwalk Bullet at Kemah - I saw the progress of this roller coaster from the ground up, and I usually like roller coasters, but it's my life's goal NOT to ride this one.

11. Own a Hummer - Gas guzzlers. Nuff said.
12. Lay down in a coffin - my ex-husband was a funeral director, and I don't think I could ever bring myself to lie down in a casket or coffin.
13. Swim with Sharks - My brother-in-law has done this, but it's not my cup of tea. They are too unpredictable, and I don't want to take any chances.

Im with you on all of them except #3. Ive seen them all:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Lilibeth said...

I absolutely agree as well. Except I won't ride any roller coaster...well the mildest ones, but that's all. I get sea sick on a merry go around. I'm afraid of heights, and I'll let others eat all the disgusting stuff unless I'm starving.

scooper said...

Yep me too. I wouldn't do any of them. Have a great TT.

pussreboots said...

Paint balls leave impressive looking bruises. Happy TT.

Tasina said...

I'm with you on all of these!!

Chelle Y. said...

I ditto everyone of those! I was helping in a haunted house one time (years ago) and I refused to lie down in the coffin! The only way that I will be laying in one is when I am dead! LOL! I shudder now! :)

Nicholas said...

I agree with some of those but I do want to bungee jump and to skydive again.

TheVasquez3 said...

I LOVE Andrew Zimmern, but I don't think I'd like to have dinner with him.
He's funny to watch on TV, though. :)

You never know what could tempt you in the future, but I love this idea....

I like the saw movies! They are pretty gross, which is kinda why I like them.

Playful Professional said...

Swimming with sharks is one of the scariest but most amazing experiences I've ever had. You'd be surprised.

ellen b said...

I'm right there with you on all 13!

Eve said...

I did a never list a few weeks ago. Some of yours were on my list, too. I gotta agree with all of them. Maybe I need to do another list of nevers - there are so many more.

Laura said...

I think I agree with you on all of those... we had a bearded dragon as a house guest over the summer last year...I don't think I could go any more exotic than that. Great list!

Lucy said...

hope it's okay that I comment even though I'm not participating-
I just have to tell you I agree with Your entire list!
I wouldn't do any of them! I like this.. maybe I will look into participating! :)

TorAa said...

I agree with all of your point but one: #2: As a boy we played with frogs. And we do have a couple of toads in our summer garden. We like them, as they eat the killer/iberian snails. Every fall, one of them comes for a evening visit to our platform. Just sitting there looking at us, then walks away again.

myrtle beached whale said...

I am on board with you on all but two. I am sure that somewhere in my rural childhood I played with some frogs or toads. I have ridden some pretty good roller coasters.
