Abducted by the Nevers...

My friend Andrea has a blog that she uses to write just about everyday observations and rants. On one of her last entries she mentioned a creative writing page that offered creative writing prompts to help get your juices flowing. #135 was to create a list of 50 things you will never do. I thought this one was kind of funny so I decided to give it a try. I had a lot of fun thinking them up. I will admit that you can probably argue that some of them could happen. But I found that if allowed for too many “what if” scenarios I would never finish it. So any way, hope you enjoy!

I will never again play Kickball.
I will never go pro at softball
I will never make it on Broadway
I will never be a rock star
I will never win an Oscar
I will never take ecstasy
I will never find the movie My Best Friends Girl funny
I will never like the movie the Matrix
I will never make it to the Olympics based on my own athleticism
I will never reach 5’3 without being genetically altered
I will never completely trust Tom Cruise
I will never get over my love for Italian Food (or Italians)
I will never be a fan of white chocolate
I will never eat wasabi
I will never pierce my nipples
I will never give up trying to be an author
I will never be a fan of techno music
I will never quit loving U2
I will never be able to speak convincingly in a different accent
I will never be immortal
I will never finish reading all of the books already in my apartment
I will never be a skateboarder
I will never be a maggot farmer
I will never understand everything about computers
I will never willingly live in Japan, or China, or Egypt, or India…
I will never willingly wear high heels
I will never tattoo my face
I will never go on a roller coaster
I will never go bungee jumping
I will never fly a plane
I will never be in the military (not that they would take me)
I will never be a gardener
I will never have a pet spider
I will never get another perm
I will never learn to speak Japanese
I will never like it when people talk baby talk
I will never be good at debate
I will never spend more than $100 on shoes

I will never again get to play the game Snake on my cell phone
I will never go swimming with sharks
I will never understand Yankee fans
I will never be a chess player
I will never look good in yellow
I will never have a convincing tan
I will never go over to the dark side!
I will never call my friend Kate by the nickname Kathy. Katie is okay, Kit Kat is fine, but Kathy would be an insult and knowing her it would be the last thing I ever said.
I will never allow people to call me “CB” although I will continue to go back and forth on my accepting of “Court”
I will never live to the age 150, if I even make it to 125 I’ll be like “come on people pull the plug already!”
I will never admit that a relationship between myself and Elijah Wood is absolutely 100% out of the question!

*when I copy and pasted this, it didn't transfer the numbers but trust me there is 50!

Simply fantastic. However, I have a medieval stretching machine awaiting you to disprove that you can't be over 5'3".

Courtney, I thought your life's ambition was to become a maggot farmer! It's certainly mine. When did you change your mind? ;)
