Never or now?

Yes, never say never. This is a bigger-than-us, wacky world with surprises around every corner (for those who peek). But I can categorize certain circumstances and events as a “never” or a “now” (apologies to The King):

I've never had a Krispy Kreme donut. In days past, when I ate such things, "air donuts" (a.k.a. glazed) where the 'nut of choice. However, since I suspect an orgasmic response and immediate addition, K.K. is a never.

I've never traveled out of the country as an adult, but will absolutely do so. Ireland is first up.

I've never sky-dived. For the bid 3-0, friends bought me a tandem-jump package. The first two attempts were cancelled due to bad weather (one, a freak storm that blew up minutes before boarding). On the third attempt, got suited up, got ready to board and got to see a light plane crash in a fiery ball hundreds of feet from our tarmac. I'm a serious dumb-ass if I don't take the hint that I should remain inside a plane only, in the upright and seated position.

I've never bought a vehicle based solely on thrill quotient, instead going for MPG, value and how well it handles the snow (can you say, Honda?). There is a shiny piece of fun that goes vrooommm in my future.

I've never had surgery other than a wisdom tooth extraction or full-one anesthesia. Hope I never will. The thought of knock-out juice and (not?) waking up sort of freaks me out.

I've never had a Big Mac. Never will.

I’ve never been married but once engaged. It’s now or never. My looooovvvveeee won’t wait.

So, what's your never, what's your now?

I've never watched The West Wing. Doubt I ever will.

I've never traveled out of North America. Hope I do soon.

I've never scored a hat trick. Would like to do so NOW.

I've never liked guacamole. AND I NEVER WILL.

I've never drank a fifth of Captain Morgan while on a company retreat at a lake, stripped off all of my clothes and sat on the dock singing Live's "Lightning Crashes" at two in the morning. Oh, wait...

See, now I would have gone for tequila and "I Alone". Curious fun fact, my ex knew those guys when they were unsigned pub crawlers.

Jeff K said...

I forgot to mention that when I was never doing that, I was playing acoustic guitar, which lends itself much more to Lightning Crashes. Also serves as a bit of clothing when none other are preset, as it were.

Baby, better a guitar than a ukelele.

I've never [i]broken[/i] a bone (in my body I mean).

I've never seen an ocean (I was born in Japan, but 6 weeks old when we left).

Never been out of the continental US (see above).

Never been able to taste with the tip of my tounge (Thanks sis :-0)

No, no, no....I only took the meat cleaver to your thumb junction. Oh, and threw a wrench at your head then had you sit through dinner with a ballcap on so we wouldn't get in trouble.
