Never Again!Leigh Covington came up with the cutest spin on Theresa Paolo's blog hop celebrating the release of her new book, (Never) Again!
Here's the real rules:
Liz, the main character of (Never) Again got her heart broken and refused to ever open it up to anyone again. We all know how that goes though. How many times have you swore off something only to step right back into it? So for this bloghop I want to know what it is you swore you would never do again and then wound up doing. It could be anything. Dating a guy, drinking, going on the roller coaster that made you vomit, anything.
But Leigh posted a quiz...four things she swore she would never do again...but only one of them was true and commenters were asked to choose: what did Leigh swear she'd never do again?
So, I liked this idea and in planning for it, I was trying to think of my most outrageous stunt that I swore I'd never do again. My husband was trying to help me out...he'd say what about that time your friends had the seance in the graveyard?
Nope, I stayed in the car. Same for the time they broke into the local "haunted" and abandoned house. If horror movies taught me nothing, it's that teens who commit B&E's die before the credits. Every. Time.
Did I ever puke on a roller coaster? No, but I once talked a carnie into letting my girlfriend and I stay on the Cobra for four hours straight. No stopping.
Good times. No regrets there.
Drink too much? Sure, but never past enjoyment. Though there was this one time when I was dating my husband and I mixed beer and liquor and ended up throwing up. In front of the car head lights because I was afraid of the dark (it's that ghost thing, ya know). Would I do it again? Yep. If I had to barf in the boonies where werewolves might grab me from behind a tree, I will puke in the light every single time.
So...what do I regret? What have I sworn off of for a lifetime?
Oy. This is tough. I live a no regrets sort of life, but I will give it a try, and you see if you can guess what one thing I will never do again.
1. I will never again speed through Moundsville, West Virginia. It's a total speed trap and I have better ways to spend $300 dollars.
2. I will never again give my teen-age boy my credit card and a Game Stop card. Again, better ways to spend $300 dollars.
3. I will never again drink cool, refreshing glacier water. Feeling like I have dysentery is NOT my idea of vacation.
4. I will never camp again. Sold my tent for $300 dollars.
Happy Book Birthday Theresa!
May publishing a book not be the one thing you never do again!
