I hope I never

Here's a list of the things I hope I never do.

1. I hope that I never have to go skydiving.  Even if I were appointed some top secret mission from the CIA, I wouldn't do it.  I'd rather spend my life in prison.

2. Take myself [or my husband, my kids, other people, etc] too seriously.  Life's too short for that nonsense.

3. Further, I hope I never take myself, my husband, my kids, my family, etc for granted.  Life's too short for that, too.

4. Get coersed into riding a roller coaster.  I'll hold your stuff and sit on a nice bench while you put your life into the hands of a twisted piece of metal with thin wheels.  Fine by me.

5.  I hope I never get so old and dusty that I think rules, regulations, and my opinion are worth more than people.  I pray that as my husband and I age, our ministry continues to be about the Message of Jesus Christ, not the message of "us".

6.  Eat organ meat.  I'll try anything once, and I love all kinds of food, but I'm really not going to be psyched about eating the pancreas of something. 

7.  I seriously hope I never run out of butter.

8. Stop myself, at my dog, at life.

9.  Forget where I am and start breakdancing in a shopping center or some other public place.  Because that's bound to be awkward.

This has been a fun exercise in self-exploration.  However, it has made me kind of bummed because I have been thinking of all these other things that I hope never happen and now I'm kind of sad.
-Get struck by lightning
-Run over someone's dog
-Become a widow...seriously negative stuff here people.  Perhaps it would be better to make a list of what I do hope happens. 

Starting with "I hope I can become a more positive and less worrisome person as I age."
