The Anti-Bucket List


The Anti-Bucket List Bucket Cleaning Wash Capacity Pen Plastic


So, I found this fun list to do over at Suze’s place, and she found it from Georgie, at her place, and now I’m taking on the challenge (of course – I can’t resist a fun challenge).

Now this is an Anti-Bucket List, where we list things we’d Never Do! It was harder than I thought it would be to come up with some of these.

  1. I would never get in a lake. Why? Because there are fish in a lake, and my worst phobia is fish!
  2. I would never water ski or snow ski. First, water skiing takes place on a lake (see #1), and snow skiing is on snow. I don’t like winter or snow.
  3. I would never climb a mountain. I love looking at mountains, but climbing one – nope.
  4. I would never again stand in a fire-ant bed. I unwittingly did that before, and talk about the fiery pain of the stings! Never again.
  5. I will never again lay out in the sun to get a sun tan. I used to, but never got a tan, just sun-burn.
  6. I would never eat raw fish. Yuck! For one thing, it’s fish, and raw fish creeps me out just as much as real live fish.
  7. I would never bungee jump, parachute from a plane, or try my hand at window washing skyscrapers.
  8. I would never wear fake fingernails. I like mine very short, and fake ones, well…they look like ugly fake claws.
  9. I would never (knowingly) eat bugs.
  10. I would never stick my arm in a box full of mosquitoes to demonstrate how effective a mosquito repellent is.
  11. I would never want to be a Cobra snake charmer.


That’s all I could think of at the moment. What would be on your Anti-Bucket list? 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Haha! Love the idea of an anti-bucket list. My bucket list is so boring… this could be a lot more interesting.
    That’s a lot of fishy stuff, Barbara. What about one of these fish pedicures where the fishes nibble away to make softer feet? Not me! Hugs.

    • I know! Fish are horrible and scary to me. Ghosts, wonderful! Spiders, I love them. Just please no fish! haha … and I would die if I stuck my foot in fish water so they can nibble your feet. Thanks, Teagan! Now, what would be on your anti-bucket list? 🙂

  2. I get my nails done every two weeks. I’ve fake nails and I love them. When I didn’t have them my real ones would break all the time.

    I love this idea. There are lots of things I wouldn’t do either.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    • Oh, sorry Sandee, hope I didn’t offend you with the fake nails statement. I was thinking of those extremely long ones. I’ve always kept mine short because they’d break off so easily otherwise. I do like getting my nails & toes done at a salon, too. … Wishing you a lovely rest of the week! 🙂

  3. I love this idea and I enjoyed your list. I’m with you on all of it. I’m not afraid of fish, but I can’t swim and I don’t really like being in something I can’t see the bottom of (I only go in the ocean up to my knees on a clear day, my ankles otherwise). I just might do this myself! Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks, Tara! It was fun to think of some things to never do. I used to swim a lot in a pool, but haven’t in years. I have waded in the Gulf of Mexico, which was pretty nice. Have fun making your list! 🙂

  4. I am so glad there is someone with an anti-bug-eating item in their lists! yea, fire ants suck big time. and no more mountain climbing for me either!

    • The mister likes to watch those TV shows where the guy eats all kinds of nasty stuff like bugs…and more…ugh! I haven’t seen fire ants here, but south & central TX has them everywhere. Those suckers hurt! Thanks, Suze, for your list. It was fun to do. 🙂

  5. I’m going to do a post about this and give you the credit you deserve for sharing an unusual idea. 🙂 Great list btw….. some things we should NEVER do. Too bad more don’t realize that… 😉

    • Thanks so much! It was a fun list to think about. I’ve never been very adventurous, so I’m amazed at some of the things people will try, sometimes successfully sometimes a disaster! Have fun making your list, too! 🙂

  7. Thanks for the pingback! I agree with everything on your list, especially eating sushi, yuk. But I’m afraid I’m a sunworshipper and am quite keen on a bit of sunbathing, which is what I’ll be doing from Thursdsy, when I’ll be back in Greece for the whole summer!

  8. Excellent choices. Fire ants and skeeters for me as well!
    I likes me fishies, but hey, we all have our things! My third or fourth college roommate was terrified of my goldfish. Couldn’t even cross to my side of the room. Bless you both. You’re the only two I’ve ever ‘known’.

    • Yes, it’s sort of a weird phobia to have, with the fish. I can see why there are fish, such as to eat, but I see no use whatsoever for fire ants or mosquitoes! I’ve done the same when I’ve seen someone has a goldfish…avoid that part of their house. haha!

  9. The only things I can think of include skydiving, bungee jumping, motorcycling and the like. No way.

    Alas, that’s a much nicer name than I’d have chosen. I always used the term “fuck-it list.” Haha.

    • Oh, motorcycle riding I wouldn’t do either. I have been on one, once, and it was fun, but I wouldn’t do it now. I do like the name you would call the list! haha! Thanks, Lynn! 😉
