A Charmed Life

not even if you hold a gun to my head


MY ANTI-BUCKET LIST: I always feel a bit wary when I use the word ‘never’ because if life has taught me one thing for certain – it’s that you just don’t know what is around the corner BUT I know for certain (well 99.9% certain) I will never:

Go shark diving, swimming with sharks, down in a shark cage or anything to do with sharks. This is a girl who still gets scared when she watches Jaws, yes I know it’s not real but what can I say I have an over active imagination (ps totally anti shark culling though – hopefully that will keep the bro happy)

Partake in a bungee jump. I know it’s a kiwi thing and yay for that but it just doesn’t feel right. 

Wear a crop top in public. My days of acting like a young Madonna are over unfortunately, yet another sign I’m getting older.

Drink kombucha. Just the smell of it freaks me out.

Run for a political position. I am a very opinionated person and have a view of how I would run the world but I’m not sure I have the thick skin or the cunning required for any type of public role and in any case the idea of old photos of me being dug up and put out there for all to ridicule makes me cringe.

Ride a hot air balloon – seems romantic but looks boring. What if you need to go to the loo up there?

Finish 50 Shades of Grey. I read the first 166 pages but couldn’t make myself read anymore. To those who stayed away from it, I concur it really is a lesson in banality… still if you are interested I know of this new author who has her first book coming out soon 😉

I can think of a load more that I could add; like how I will never go to North Korea (well Kim whatshisface doesn’t sell it very well does he?) or that I will never wear crocs (one word yuck) or that I will never get plastic surgery (fingers crossed I continue to look like I’m under thirty for many years to come) but I can’t know for certain if North Korea, crocs or plastic surgery will pop up in my life or not. Anyway enough about me – what’s on your anti-bucket list? Come on spill…

  5. i never finished 50 shaes either!!! Dont know what all the fuss is about?? Agree with the shark thing too – like to think i don’t have stupid tattooed on my head!!
    As for my anti-bucklist:

    To never keep an insect as a pet
    To never ride a unicycle – 2 wheels is hard enough
    To never – attend a murder mystery party – boooorring

  6. Crocs are very practical you know….

  7. you forgot to say you would never get a tattoo

    • you aren’t the first to pick up on that!
      It’s the getting older thing… the memory is not what it used to be 😉
      but good to see you are reading the blog – thank you

  8. Ha ha ha I love Kombucha. Are you going to unfollow now? LOL My boy hates the smell, too, but it’s great for my digestion. And crocs are the most comfortable thing on the planet.

    Looks like we’ll have to focus on the things we have in common…interest in culture, love of writing. =)
