Things I'll Never Do, Like Ever

I've talked about getting uncomfortable a lot this year and saying yes to things that I would normally say no to. The only way to grow is by stepping out if your comfort zone and doing things you wouldn't normally do. I am ALL for this. However, there are some things I just don't ever want to do, like ever.

    Break a bone and/or have surgery.
    Despite being one of the clumsiest people you will EVER meet, I've never broken a bone (except for the two times I've broken my pinky toe - that doesn't count). This is my something that I ever want to chance. Also, I never want to have surgery. I'm really not a fan of doctors or hospitals, so let's just avoid that one all together please and thanks.

    Run a marathon.
    I'm amazed by people who can run marathons, but that's just not something I could ever see myself doing. That is just far too much running and ain't nobody got time for that.

    Any kind of 'fear factor' challenge including earwigs.
    No, no no no no no. Earwigs are my number one fear in life and I have absolutely zero desire to touch them, eat them, come in contact with them, etc. I'm pretty sure money wouldn't even change my mind on that one.

    Go skiing
    Due to the fact that I'm the clumsiest person, ever - I refuse to go skiing or even try it. I live in a city where skiing is a HUGE thing in the winter. I'm a short drive to whistler - one of the greatest places to ski, but I just have zero desire. I don't want to break a bone, injur someone else, or die. Yes, I'm that dramatic.
    Get arrested
    No thank you. I mean, I'm all for doing illegal things and testing my fate with the authorities as much as the next person (I'm kidding), but I just have zero desire to actually get arrested. Not to mention I'd probably be the laughing stock of the prison since I'd be a sobbing mess. I just don't do well with getting in trouble.

What things won't you ever do? Tell me.

Even though we don't like rules, every fun thing in life has them. So here are a few of ours:

1. Please only link up a post if it matches with the day's topic.
2. Make sure you either grab the button code and put it in the HTML portion of your post, or link back to at least one of the hosts.
3. Go make some friends. Comments=Love

I'm totally with you on being the clumsiest person alive- I don't think I'll ever run a marathon bc it just becomes so boring and the training is rough, but I've done three half marathons and part of me is like, I'd like to do a marathon once just to say I did it

I just googled what an earwig is and then threw up in my mouth a little. A girl I know mentioned the other day that they have them in Ontario. I've never seen one in SK and hope I never do!

Ew, Fear Factor! Couldn't do it. I'll be poor, thank you.

I never want to get arrested. I know some people tend to think it's not that big a deal if you're actually not charged but I don't ever want to have to deal with the cops, like ever ;)

Get arrested. Yes. 110% agree. I get cagey when I think about the possibility of that (not that I need to be, the only illegal thing I do is speed, and even then it's only, like 10km above the limit).

I will never, ever become a police officer. My father was one and it is the only career I will absolutely never consider as a life possibility for me. (It's a great job and I have a lot of respect and admiration for the law enforcement professionals of the world.)

I'm pretty sure I've heard about earwigs, but explain them to me again. I'm too lazy to Google it.
