The Bucket List's Evil Twin

We all have a bucket list of some sort right? Well today, I'm bringing you the evil twin of the bucket list.  The "things I've experienced, but never wanted to." list.   I was going to do this a few weeks ago, but decided to wait to see if I could think of something else, and then this weekend I added another thing to my list.  

So here is my things that I never wanted to experience, but have now experienced list...

Having a tire blow
This is the thing that made me think of this list.  Mady and I were on the way home from work a few weeks ago, and I honestly thought she hit the curb, but it ended up being that we blew a front tire.  We both may have uttered "Oh Sh*t" when it happened. Mady called our parents and they had just fallen asleep, but they did come out and help!  

Having my eyes unsewn
When I was younger, I had multiple major surgeries, and before one, they put me under and sewed my eyes shut because they were afraid that if they didn't, my eyes would pop out of their sockets.  Yeah, well y'know the saying what goes up, must come down? Well, what is sewn, must be unsewn, unless I wanted to be blind.  #obviouslyididnt But here's the kicker, they didn't find it necessary to put me to sleep to UNSEW them! I was kicking and screaming and yelling "DADDY KICK THE NURSE! HIT THE NURSE DADDY! (I feel like I should mention that my dad is a cop and I thought he could do whatever he wanted, I was 7, so give me a break :) )

Fainting in Public. 
I've been lucky enough to have this happen to me twice(to quote the great Kenzie, where is my sarcasm font when I need it?) Once when I was in eighth grade and I honestly can't remember the second time, but I wrote twice in my notes, so there must have been another time that I am mentally blocking right now.  

Throwing up at the state fair. 
Yep, this one just happened this weekend.  In case you don't live in Minnesota and your facebook feed or twitter feed isn't blowing up with how stinking hot and humid it was, it was stinking hot and humid.  Well Meghan, you may ask, why on God's green Earth would you go to the state fair on a day like that? & I'd say good question my friends, but here's the deal, my uncle was in town from Colorado and he wanted to go, and I wanted to spend time with him.  & I wanted to go to the state fair dang it! So we are there for like 2 hours and I've been drinking milk and I had an Icee and some lemonade and maybe a few swigs of water, but we're all sitting underneath the stairs at the unlimited milk barn and I feel like I'm gonna get sick, so I'm like excuse me, excuse me, I ran over to the nearest garbage can, and I caught my breath and turned to walk back to the group and both of my uncles(it really was a family affair, my Uncle Jeff and his fam came and my Uncle Jim and his fam came.) were both staring at me and they were like are you okay? I said no, and then went over to the dumpster and obviously ended up getting sick.  SO embarrassing, but I like to keep it real up here on They Call Her Meghan!

  1. OH NO! So sorry you got sick at the fair...but, honestly, it doesn't surprise me. With all food and heat - I would have gotten sick, too! Hope you're better now.

    And the eyes unsewn thing...OUCH!

  2. Ooof. I would hate hate hate to have a tire blow out on me. We had both tires blow out on the passenger side on my husbands truck, but luckily he was driving.

    Having your eyes unsewn while you were awake? I would be kicking and screaming now as an adult! Yikes.

  3. Yikes. I've had my share of flat tires too. But I have never had my eyes unsewn (or sewn). And without any anesthetics?? Ouch!!

  4. Sorry to hear about the flat - one of my biggest fears is something happening to my car while I'm driving in it. To make matters worse my husband doesn't always answer his phone at work so I'd be stranded!!
