Well, I Never!

I've Never...

Watched an episode of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Survivor
or Dancing with the Stars


Figured out how to tie knots in cherry stems with my tongue like many of my cousins can

Read To Kill a Mockingbird

Smoked a cigarette

Been able to "roll" my Rs (you know... "R-r-r-r-ruffles have r-r-r-ridges") despite the fact that I am a speech therapist and teaching kids how to make sounds is what I do for a living

Been pregnant

Watched any of the plethora of superhero movies that have been released in the past decade (Avengers, Iron Man, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc.)

Taken any illegal substance

Visited the Louisville Zoo, despite having lived in Louisville for 16 years

Eaten catfish

Been to the Kentucky Derby even though Churchill Downs is less than 5 miles from my house

Inspired by Rose @ Ramblin' Rose's blog post Never Ever Before

Linking up with:


  1. Out of all those super hero movies you list, I'll admit, Guardians of the Galaxy was the one I was most skeptical about, only to be pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Good soundtrack too.
    Of the tv shows you list, I've seen an episode of all of those, but I've never watched a full season of any of them.
    The rolling R's surprised me the most (because of the whole speech pathology thang.)

    1. When I finally admitted defeat and accepted the fact that I would never be able to roll my Rs, it gave me an entirely new perspective on therapy. It put me in my students' shoes of being frustrated and disappointed despite my best effort. I think the overall experience made me a more compassionate, understanding, and better therapist.

  2. I've never been pregnant either.

    1. Good to know, E Man! How have you been? Haven't seen much of you since AtoZ.

    1. I tried for 25 years and finally gave up. 5/6 of my cousins can do it, but I can't... I can't even come close! I blame it on the gene that also prevents me from being able to roll my Rs... LOL!

  4. Haha I have never watched The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Survivor, Avengers, X-Men, or Guardians of the Galaxy either. Nor have I read To Kill a Mocking Bird. The idea of catfish makes me cringe. No thanks!

    1. Folks around here (KY) say catfish, if prepared just right, is tasty. I'm just gonna take their word for it! LOL!

  5. I think I've watched a single episode of Dancing with the Stars once; I don't remember why though haha. With you on the others! Also the zoo- I've never been to the two famous zoos in NYC even though I've lived 20 min away my whole life!

    1. I think it's very common to not attend something or go to a place that is close to home because we overlook it and just take it for granted. I grew up about an hour away from some of the finest white water in West Virgina, but never went white water rafting until I was in my 30s. Have a good one!
