This week has been a slow slog for me. If you rob me of an hour of sleep, this is what you get: a woman with a tired brain who is incapable of creating much of anything.
Then while reading Knocked over by a feather & Fish of Gold I saw their versions of this meme, and I remembered the Never Have I Ever Drinking Game. Suddenly, doing this meme seemed like the perfect subject for a TGIF post.
Happy weekend, everyone. Enjoy!
- Never have I ever ridden on a motorcycle.
- Never have I ever grabbed eggs from a hen’s nest.
- Never have I ever owned a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes.
- Never have I ever watched an episode of American Idol or The Voice.
- Never have I ever regretted having this house built.
- Never have I ever smoked pot purchased legally in Colorado.
- Never have I ever worried about whether someone thinks that I’m bossy.
- Never have I ever knitted a sweater.
- Never have I ever thrown a TV out a window.
- Never have I ever inconvenienced other people with my luggage on an airplane.
- Never have I ever ordered a Long Island Iced Tea.
- Never have I ever run or walked a marathon of any length.

Sure would like a pair of Jimmy Choo’s myself!
Ah-ha! So you don’t have a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes.
This means, if I correctly remember my drinking game rules, that you, Kate, do not have to take a shot because you are the same as me.
Holy crap. I’ve Ever’d 5 of those. WHAT HAPPENS NOW?!?!?!?!
nance, I think that the thing with the game is that if you are the same as me, you don’t drink.
But if you are different than me, then you drink.
And if, by chance, everyone who is playing the game has done that which I have not done, then I drink.
Clear now? 😉
Seems easiest just to drink. And funner. You got me on the TV, didn’t you?
Zen-Den, yes I did! 🙂
But here’s the funny thing: when I researched the Never Have I Ever Drinking Game the first example of how to play this game was about throwing a TV out the window!
Which, of course, made me immediately think of you, darling.
“And if, by chance, everyone who is playing the game has done that which I have not done, then I drink”.
Never have I ever ridden on a motorcycle – I’ve done this, in the driver’s seat and on the pillion, for the avoidance of doubt.
Never have I ever grabbed eggs from a hen’s nest – done this too, my friend’s parents have a coop and we’ve raided it a few times.
Never have I ever owned a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes – OK you got me there.
Never have I ever watched an episode of American Idol or The Voice – me neither.
Never have I ever regretted having this house built – never regretting having a house built, but seriously regret moving to where I am now – does that count?
Never have I ever smoked pot purchased legally in Colorado – couldn’t possibly comment, but I’ve never been to Colorado, in case the location is important.
Never have I ever worried about whether someone thinks that I’m bossy – I used to worry about these kind of things all the time. Now, not so much.
Never have I ever knitted a sweater – oh yes! Disasters, all of them.
Never have I ever thrown a TV out a window – no but I did throw a chocolate orange out of a 6th floor flat once. It’s a long story, could have ended badly, but thankfully didn’t.
Never have I ever inconvenienced other people with my luggage on an airplane – me neither, pathologically polite, that’s me.
Never have I ever ordered a Long Island Iced Tea – my favourite cocktail bar in Wimbledon, London, does a wonderful LIIT. Had to try it.
Never have I ever run or walked a marathon of any length – I once walked 13 miles, so a half marathon, when my son was first born. I needed to get out of the house, we had a wonderful day in the sunshine.
Pour yourself a large one!
Polly, delightful summary! Would love to see the sweater that you knitted. And would be willing to try a LIIT if made by a bartender who knew what he or she was doing.
… and now it’s my turn drink, I guess. Well, maybe later in the day, if that’s okay with you.
It’s already later in the day here 🙂 I’ll have one for you until you catch up.
Polly, you are ever so thoughtful. Enjoy your tipple.
Oh, I can be bossy and am not afraid to admit it. I’ve smoked pot, but never in CO and not for about 35 years or so. I rode on a motorcycle once and never wanted to do it again. I have no interest in participating in a marathon although I do like to to run. 🙂
Margaret, it’s a fun game, isn’t it? I’m not sure how many drinks you need to take now, but whatever number you feel is best is fine by me. 😉
I can’t really figure out the rules (and don’t have a drink to swig from, anyhow), but I overlap with you on all point except the eggs one. I had pet chickens when I was ~13. And the more recently I tended to a friend’s chickens during her vacation. Both times involved taking eggs from a hen’s nest, but in these cases, the hens tended not to be sitting on them.
(And seriously, I am so far from owning a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes that I had to google them to see what they even looked like. I am a woman who is largely uninterested in shoes. I mean, I wear them, and I like to have some that look decent for dressy or professional occasions, but mostly I want my feet to be comfortable so that I can use them for things like walking.)
alejna, the rules of this game are more like guidelines (as I recall). 😉
When someone has not done the same things that I have not done, then that someone does not have to drink. BUT when that someone has done something that I’ve not done, then that someone has to drink.
As for the Jimmy Choo shoes, there is no way that I’d be able to stand up in them, let alone walk across the room. I’m a flats or low pumps sort of woman. Much too practical I guess.
“Never have I ever worried about whether someone thinks that I’m bossy.”—I love that you haven’t worried about that. As it should be! I also love that you’ve never thrown a TV out the window. What a waste of perfectly good shows that would be. 😉
Thanks for the Twitter share of my blog post. Appreciate it!
Carrie, last week’s kerfluffle about #banbossy prompted me to add that “never have I ever” item to my list. But you probably already figured that out. 😉
And as for your blog post, I thought that what you had to say was relevant for all of us, all of the time. Thanks for pointing it out.
