There are a lot of things I want to do in this life and a lot I just could not care less about. Over the past few days, I've written about things I want to do, particularly in the coming year, but here are a few things I could go my entire life never doing and still be perfectly happy.
- Sky-diving. No desire. Don't like heights, certainly don't need to jump out of a plane and plummet to the earth. I'm sure it's lovely if you're into it, but I can skip it.
- Learn to like brie. I've tried it multiple ways. I've eaten it hot, cold, warm, baked, with ham on a sandwich, with fruit, and slathered on sourdough. I just don't like it.
- Run a marathon. Or a 5K. Or jog around my neighborhood. I don't like to run and I look like a goofball when I do it. I don't experience a "runner's high" and honestly, it kind of bores me. I'd much rather walk fast or get a nice bike to ride to stay in shape.
- Experience New Year's Eve in Times Square. Bet that one surprised those of you who know me. This seems like something I SHOULD want to do, like something I would love. I guess I was a NYC resident for too long, which means my survival instinct would kick in on December 31 and I'd stay as far away from Times Square as I could get. I remember trying to hail a cab at 72nd St. one year and it taking almost an hour. Once I got back to my apartment, Marcus , our friends and I ate mini tacos and watched the ball drop on TV.
Anything you could live forever without doing?
