Remember how I had linked up to the lovely Michelle for my 25 Random Things post? I love posts like these, since you get to know a lot about bloggers through these peeks into their personalities.

Well, today, I am turning to the refreshing Robbie K for inspiration! This was her version of the ‘Never’ series.  Her posts are a good mixture of fun and sobriety, so do pop over and say hello 🙂

Here is my list of nine things that I have never done in my 30-odd years on this planet and which I probably will never get around to doing either! But, who knows? Anything can happen.

And, just to spice it up, I am adding a twist to the list.

One of the ‘Never’ items listed here is untrue. See if you can spot which one it is;)

The credit for this idea goes to the ever-delightful Jen! If you haven’t read her blog, you’re missing something!

  1. I have never bungee-jumped/ sky dived. To all you daredevils out there, I salute your courage and enthusiasm, but I prefer my feet on terra firma, unless I am up in an airplane!
  2. I have never drunk wine/ tequila/ whisky.. oh heck,let’s just say, any alcoholic drink.
  3. I have never been within 2 feet of a live snake. And, no, glass enclosures in a zoo don’t count!
  4. I have never roller-skated or skateboarded in my entire life. Looking at kids zooming away on those things does look very tempting though!
  5. I have never played ‘Holi’, the festival of colours. I do encourage my daughter to experience it, though.
  6. I have never dissected a frog or any other animal, for that matter. Switching schools and countries midway through my teen years ensured that I missed those laboratory sessions. (I’m not complaining 😉
  7. I have never visited the Taj Mahal, that ode to love and romance, although I have visited Delhi once.
  8. I don’t have and never will get a tattoo. Again, I wholly respect those of you who have done it, but the thought of a needle piercing my skin continuously just gives me the heebie-jeebies!
  9. I have never liked the taste of coffee, unless it was in the form of ice-cream!

So, there you have it. One list and one of those is untrue! Which one do you think it is? Leave your guess in the comments. I will let you know in a day or two. Check out if you got it right by clicking here 🙂

Also, do link back to your own lists! It’s great fun to read!

Thanks for the shout out! We have a lot in common–I've never bungeed jumped and I never will. I don't like the smell of coffee, no tattoos, never visited Taj Mahal.

Okay, it has to be no. 9.. you don't like coffee? !

Lakshmi Madhuri · November 22, 2013 at 5:55 am

Didi, it might be 9 i feel. Most of them like coffee, you should be one of them.

Shailaja V · November 22, 2013 at 6:35 am

Maybe I do and maybe I don't 😉 Answer in tomorrow's post.
