I’ve been hearing a lot about New Year’s Resolutions lately. In fact, I even wrote some of my own.
But recently I was reading the little note from the editor at the beginning of a magazine, and she wrote that she makes a list every January of â€œThings I’ve Never Done.â€
So guess what I did?
Hereâ€™s my list of Things Iâ€™ve Never Done:
â€¢ Poked my eye out with a hanger
â€¢ Cleared a HazMat site
â€¢ Wore a mink bikini
â€¢ Lifted a Volkswagen over my head
â€¢ Held my breath till my lungs exploded
But as I re-read my list, it occurred to me that the editor I stole this idea from probably WANTS to do the stuff on her list.
So hereâ€™s my revised list of Things Iâ€™ve Never Done That Iâ€™d LIKE To Do:
â€¢ Go an entire day without saying, â€œJust DO it, okay?? Geez!â€
â€¢ Eat a block of cheese without one pang of guilt
â€¢ Cheerfully clean my house
â€¢ Get my house cleaned by cheerful people
â€¢ Write a manuscript that doesnâ€™t need revising
â€¢ Be a synesthetic tuba player
Whatâ€™s on your list?
