That's no way for a woman in a committed relationship to talk.

We haven't even established the sex of this new animal, anyway.

But no, my OH can bake and make mead. I'm loyal.

I haven't not done many of the things listed above, Everest and cruising excepted, I can say that I have never been to a brothel, topless joint or casino...

Edit: ^^^ And grizzly wrestling, no, nope, never had to, never hope to.

Ah...I have been to a few but never had the nerve to place a bet nor even to play a slot machine there.

Everyone at the tables seems to know what they are doing and I find that a bit intimidating. And the machines...if there's anything more than a 'hold' feature they are too complicated for me.

In a pub I would occasionally have a go but hope I would lose so that all the buttons don't flash revealing the fact I don't have a clue what to do.

I once acted as dealer at a Blackjack table for a charity casino night. The proceeds may have been for charity, but the players were regulars. We got about 30 minutes training and that was it. That was intimidating. Just glad I wasn't assigned the craps table.

Default Re: What have you never done?

I first swam from one side of the swimming bath to the other aged 29...I was, and continue to be, proud of my progress...I’m never going to be a water babe! A very difficult thing It was called The Duckling Club...the sad thing is, that I was not the biggest ducking...lots of people missed out on the swim thing!

I have never visited Argentina...it is the really big ‘one thing’ that I had always wanted to do. It’s a place that has always appealed, culturally, historically and, most certainly, food wise... it’s never going to happen

I had wanted to run a Marathon too, and was finally accepted for the London, prior to coming to Canada...but six weeks before, I broke my ankle. This year, C19 and other family challenges, have made things uncomfortable, but I decided that if I worked them out I would run in the next Marathon, here in Fredericton. My son was running in this years...but of course it was canceled...Now I have decided that come what may, I will eat his dirt! I WILL run it too. I need to cross this off my bucket list...it’s been on it too long...

I have never hypnotised a chicken, although I did see someone else do this. Prior to this event I had never heard of chicken hypnotism, but shortly after the chicken hypnotist announced his intention, I was somewhat surprised to see the bird lay limp.

I thought this was going to be some weird BE drinking game.
I was disappointed.


I've never:
ridden a motorbike;
had a tattoo;
been to any part of North or South America;
broken a bone.

I never put a piece of Lego up my nose. A necklace bead and maybe a dried pea but never Lego.

I have driven one a few times (rental cars in the US), but have never owned one, despite almost 19 years living in the US. It is getting harder and harder to find cars with a manual transmission, and trucks are almost impossible to find. Ford stopped making a manual version of my truck in 2010.
