message 1: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I was just thinking that I never replaced the broken scale we had, and you know, I don't miss it. I know there's some research that indicates people who were once unhealthy but have improved do check the scale every now and then but I can check at the Y...I don't need a scale at home.

I'm sure we can adjust to things we have now were they to disappear. For example, I'd probably go through cable mourning if, for whatever reason, we couldn't get cable, but I'd probably adjust. I guess I'd miss cable sometimes.

But...what did you have once, that you don't miss?

I don't miss living in the city much. Too many advantages to living in a small town.

You?

I don't miss my CD player. I resisted the move to digital music for so long, but now that I've converted it seems hard to believe I ever toted around such cumbersome machinery.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments ever see someone with a CD walkman sally? may as well carry a Rahkim boom box


message 7: by Gus (new)

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Being cold outside these days, and seeing the die-hard smokers huddled outside for a quick drag, I don't miss smoking.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I don't miss 8-track players, which would skip to the next track in the middle of a song.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments I don't miss those big green "Reader's Guide to Periodicals" indexes, where you had to write down the magazine issue you wanted, and then cross your fingers that the library subscribed to that magazine, and still had that particular date.

Love the instant gratification of ProQuest...
Or, is that just me? :)



message 10: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I love instant gratification of all kinds.


message 11: by tee (new)

tee (teerex) | 13 comments I love the topics that you think of. As you can tell by my devotion to responding to each and every one of them.

I don't really miss pay-tv. I miss Propety Ladder and Relocation, Relocation but I can survive without them. So far, anyway, it's been six months and seven days... just kidding *cough*

I know it's the opposite of the question, but man, I miss coffee, I'd kill for one right now.

I don't miss being pregnant, I won't ever do THAT one again.

Or acid.


message 12: by Lori (new)

Lori I don't miss meat. But that wasn't difficult, because the reason I stopped was due to not liking it!


message 13: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Or acid.

I do miss acid! Acid was crazy fun. But the two days afterwards, whoo-ha, I don't miss those at all. I'll never do acid again. So I guess I don't miss it that much.


message 14: by tee (new)

tee (teerex) | 13 comments I miss being 19 and not caring what effects acid was having on my brain. Same with everything else I guess.

How about, I miss being naive. Being naive made everything fun.


message 15: by smetchie (new)

smetchie | 4034 comments Oh good one. I don't miss acid either. Or any drugs I don't do anymore. Cuz, you know, that's why I stopped doing them! (except cigarettes. I miss them at least daily)

I don't miss living in a land-locked state.


message 16: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I don't miss drugs. The illicit kind, I mean. I don't miss all the driving I had do in everyday life in Texas.


message 17: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i do miss missing stuff. i have sort of forgotten how cool some of the stuff i used to do was and now i don't really miss it. oh bother

Careful, Kevin...



message 19: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments should have been Raheem as in Radio Raheem. it was supposed to have been a Do The Right Thing reference but i blew it


message 20: by Zen (new)

Zen (zentea) | 515 comments Don't miss, big or small, anyone's penis. (Even if it was magically stolen.)


message 21: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Magically delicious. No ... I didn't say that, did I?

In that vein (oh my god, did I just say "vein" in a penis thread?), I don't miss having sex with women other than my wife.

Ack! Vein! Ack! Ack! Ack~!

I was very disturbed for a second. Whoo!

... does the vein-y go along with "muscular"?


message 24: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Magically muscular.


message 25: by Rannie (new)

Rannie Brings to mind the flasher we had as a patient. I came in to draw his blood, and he pulled it out. I told him "that looks like a good vein, hold still."
He never flashed me again!


message 26: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Perfect response!


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Excellent Rannie!

Barb Reviving penis ... threads ... penis threads now LG? te he he


message 30: by Ken (new)

Ken (playjerist) | 721 comments I missed my penis when I thought it was lost. But since I found it in the glove compartment, I have the same confidence I had before that it will be there when I need it most, as long as I remember where the keys to the car are.


message 31: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments Is it right to have glove compartment penis envy?


message 32: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Does anyone actually put gloves in there?


message 33: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments Excellent question Larry!


message 34: by Jaimie (new)

Jaimie (jez476) | 664 comments I don't miss my job. I miss having a job but not that one. :-)


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I don't miss clubbing 2 to 3 times a week.

I don't miss going to Blockbuster.

I don't miss commuting 2 hours to work.

I don't miss going to any video store. Horrible! They never had what I wanted and so many things were misfiled.


message 37: by Phoenix (new)

Phoenix (phoenixapb) | 1619 comments I don't miss being a military wife.


message 38: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3356 comments I'm an old woman, and I miss being seen. But I don't miss the crap that comes with being an attractive woman. It's like being rich: You don't know if someone really likes you.


message 39: by Carol (new)

Carol | 1679 comments I don't miss being young. I don't miss the self-doubt and uncertainty which really is narcissistic. I don't miss most of the people I used to talk to but don't anymore, or I'd go find them!

Me, either. Not one damn bit.


message 41: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i miss being younger. not young. my lifestyle revolves around physical activity and i do not like declining skills, failing abilities and increasing soreness and pain


message 42: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments That was a good point Carol, I don't miss the self-doubt either.


message 43: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I don't miss going to Blockbuster.

I tried to explain Blockbuster to my sons a couple days ago, because there's still one open near us, and they had been there when they were little, but even explaining the concept reminded me of how awful it was.

My dad always called it the "gin box." Perhaps in his family it was more likely to contain gin than gloves.


message 45: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Gin. Yeck. Poison.


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeck?

I love gin. If I had only one spirit to drink for the rest of time it would be a close one between bourbon and gin but gin would win.


message 48: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Poison.


message 49: by Jim (new)

Jim | 6485 comments I'm with Larry, gin=poison.


message 50: by [deleted user] (new)

I lerve gin & tonic with a twist of lime. There is nothing more refreshing on a hot afternoon.
