Rack Your Brain!

I was going to title this post Think About It but that just wasn't enough. I wanted to get away from our usual writing activities and do something a little different. I decided it would be pretty neat to come up with a list of things that we have almost...but not quite...done.

Then I ran into a little difficulty. I actually had to rack my brain to come up with something (although I'm sure there are many things) that I have not quite accomplished even though I've tried really hard. My wheels were turning. Maybe you'll have an easier time than I did. Actually, once I see some of your ideas, maybe I'll have more. This could very well be an activity where we feed off each other.

So, WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE ALMOST...BUT NOT QUITE...DONE?

Good luck!

I have almost...but not quite...water skied. I feel my tush just about to leave its duck butt position and then I fall back into the freezing lake water. Since I'm not one to give up I keep right on trying until my hands are locked onto the ski rope like hardened cement. It's not pretty. Combine that look with me in a bathing suit and an orange ski jacket...It's almost overwhelming to the innocent observer!

I have almost run away to travel the world with a redheaded musclebound guy I had only known 10 days. It was a romantic invitation, however I was a budding Zookeeper at the time and my career was my focus. A postcard was sent to me from the lovely man about three years later and I still yearn for him to pop back into my life.

I almost ... but not quite .... went off with a Greek shipping magnate I met in McDonalds in London (England) when I was 19. Well, ok, he was definitely Greek and he looked a bit like Onassis !! ;)

I almost... but not quite... learned how to juggle three balls in the air. My husband has tried to show me but when I think I've got it... I lose one.

I almost but not quite- jumped into the 6 foot deep end of a swimming pool, but I didn't.
I am scared to death of water over my head.

I've never been on a plane and while we were on holiday my much beloved thought a short trip in a helicopter would get me over my flying nervous, lucky for me it was too windy for them to take off....lol

Until next time ;-(
