#37 Things I Will Never Do Again... At Least I Hope Not

Now I am not the most mature person in the world, but even I can admit that after turning 30 some of my days are numbered. I was discussing with a girlfriend this morning and we were talking about the things the one will likely not partake in again. Or at least should not partake in. I know tht age is just a number but there is a line between young at heart and mutton dressed as lamb.

Thing I will never wear again:

Backless tops
Short shorts (not that I ever wore these as my legs are my worst asset)
Cheap jewelry
Tube tops (note this does not include strapless dresses)
Trucker caps
Hemp jewelry of any form
Toe rings
Anything with no bra
Cheap handbags (1 nice bag is all you need)

Things I will never do again:

Drink cheap wine ( I would rather drink no wine)
Drink cheap vodka or bad spirits of any kind
Holiday at all inclusive places
Keg stands (although I think beer bongs are alright for a few more years)
Take shots in the middle of the day
Engage in competitive drinking contests with boys (this one always ends poorly for me, ie puking)
Have a Beirut table at my home
Be mistaken for a boy due to dressing like one ( yes this was many years ago and I had really short hair but it did happen)
Smoke 15 fags a day or more

Getting older doens't mean that I am wiser but I can at least attempt to learn some lessons from these first 30 years. I've lived a pretty adventure filled life and I have almost no regrets and I want to keep it that way. Being in California you come across a lot of women who are trying to channel their inner teenage daughter and I have yet to see it pulled off successfully. Women in their 30's acting like college freshman are sad. But that does not mean that I can't have fun. It does become apparent that what I see as fun now is a bit different to what I thought was fun 10 years ago. So getting wasted and skinny dipping in the ocean and then trying to put my clothes back on whilst wet and sandy... not that high on the list anymore. Eating good food that I've cooked and drinking good wine with my friends while having an impromptu Guns N' Roses karaoke session in my living room....soooooo much fun.

But then again, you know what they say... you can never say never.


  1. oh i think skinnydipping will ALWAYS be apropos.

  2. So much easier being a guy.

  3. I think it is all about location... skinny dipping off the back of a private yacht in the Med? absolutely. skinny dipping during a cold night in the Pacific... not as appealing

  4. Apart from smoking I think all of the above is perfectly acceptable FOR LIFE!!! SO KEEP ON PARTYING!!!!!

  5. How about not even smoking 1 fag a day. The gift of life is just too precious
