Remember my post on things that I have never done?

To quickly recap, here they are:

  1. I have never bungee-jumped/ sky dived.
  2. I have never drunk wine/ tequila/ whisky.
  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.
  5. I have never played ‘Holi’, the festival of colours.
  6. I have never dissected a frog or any other animal, for that matter.
  7. I have never visited the Taj Mahal, that ode to love and romance.
  8. I don’t have and never will get a tattoo.
  9. I have never liked the taste of coffee, unless it was in the form of ice-cream!

Recall how I mentioned that one of those was actually untrue?

Well, here is the answer to that riddle!

The correct answer is # 3.

Yep! I have actually been very close to a snake; okay, that didn’t come out right. I meant, physically. Oh god, that sounds worse!

What I meant is, I have had a snake wrapped around my shoulders. This is getting weirder by the minute 😉

All right, I’ll just let the picture do the talking:

This was at Singapore, back in 1997,at the Open Zoo, where you can have a picture taken with a snake wound around you and even one with orang-utans sitting with you! (I have that picture too)

So, did you guess it right?

Why don’t you do a post like this one? It’s a great way to get to know other bloggers and trust me, it works for those days when your mind can’t think of a topic 😉

Lol… so you got physically close to a snake finally. cheers!,
No holi?????? Hey it's fun.. Try it with close friends. I didn't play it for years and then discovered it with the kids. Amazing way to let go.
Alcohol.. Not worth a try.. Don't much have a taste for it myself.
Taj.. Looks just like the pics.. No surprises there.
No frog… Didn't miss much..
Bungee jumping/tattoo/skating… Should be fun to try.
Loved the post.

OM Thanks! Glad you loved the post:)

Holi- doubt it. Had colour that went into my eyes when I was a kid and have a morbid fear of it happening again. Kid loves it though and I let her play to her hearts' content.

Alcohol-ditto here.

Taj- Really? I didn't realise it. Always thought it would be worth the trip.

No frog-Thank GOD!!

Bungee-Never, no way! I will freak out when I see the height 😀

That is AMAZING that you had a snake wrapped around your neck! I would love to do that someday.

I still can't get over the fact that you don't like coffee 😛

Shailaja V · December 7, 2013 at 2:53 pm

Believe me, I was dead scared when that was actually happening 😉 But, yes, I believe this is one for the bucket list 🙂

Not only do I not like coffee, but my coffee-loving husband had to give it up too, because I obviously made very bad coffee 😉
