I have never had a tattoo (but might)

I have never jumped out of plane (and never will)

I have never swam naked in a warm sea (would like to, if it was deserted)

Bungee jumped and no intentions, either
Been to Africa , not going to now.

I have never:

Watched Friends.
Eaten a MacDonald's burger.
Been skiing (always wanted to).
Done the majority of things mentioned above.

I have done the things from above that living alone requires like driving, filling with petrol, managing bills, mowing lawn etc.

GrannyGravy13 Sat 01-May-21 09:29:29

Good idea Fanny

I am unable to Scuba (medical reasons)

I could never do a bungee jump for the same reason I will not jump out of a plane (fear of heights)

I have never broken a promise.

BlueSky Sat 01-May-21 10:05:27

I’ve never done most things because of my pathological fear of the ‘What if’. But I do get on a plane (before Covid) and travel the world because I love travelling. So I do overcome my fears if I think it’s worth my while. Must have been brought up to be extremely cautious!

GagaJo Sat 01-May-21 10:07:12

Had a tattoo. Don't particularly want one either.

Watched Game of Thrones. Have no desire to.

Read or watched Harry Potter. REALLY don't want to.

Gone water skiing and have always wanted to. Probably don't have the upper body strength post breast cancer to cope with it now.
