I have received shocked and surprised responses to my declaration that
"I've never used an ATM machine." "Impossible!" "How do you survive?" "You some kind of Commie?"
Further discussion elicits the fact that I've never ordered a pizza to be delivered, nor have I ordered food via a drive-through at any restaurant. Once one has realized the rarity of such an omission it becomes, for me at any rate, a point of pride to continue the omission.
Of course there are as many things one can do as there are KTK subjects or atoms in the universe. So I'm going to try to list a few activities which I feel are common experiences of many Americans. Those in other countries may have a "whole nother" list which would be interesting to see. A ✓ after an item means I have done it.
Went to Disneyland. Played a video game. Load a dishwasher.
Rode a horse. ✓ Fired a gun ✓ Sang at a Karaoke.
Flew in a helicopter. ✓ Used a chainsaw ✓ Used an outhouse ✓
Own a car ✓ Shoveled snow ✓ Visited Hawaii.
Ran for public office. Enjoyed any Rap music. Planted a tree. ✓
Fired from a job. Have/had a pet. ✓ Act in a play post-HS.
So the idea for possible
embarrassing revealing interesting comments is to describe what everyone (in your experience) does and why you don't, or won't.
And for those of you who are jaded already from doing everything that can be done:
Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share part of the evening around a virtual kitchen table with kossacks who are caring and supportive of one another. So bring your stories, jokes, photos, funny pics, music, and interesting videos, as well as links—including quotations—to diaries, news stories, and books that you think this community would appreciate. Readers may notice that most who post diaries and comments in this series already know one another to some degree, but newcomers should not feel excluded. We welcome guests at our kitchen table, and hope to make some new friends as well.
