What is something that most people will experience at least once in their life (and probably several times)?

Just want to see what you all come up with, and to check them off my list.

examples: pay taxes, step in $hit, have a cashier give them incorrect change….etc

your answers can be as mundane or profound as you like. let ‘er rip!

Find something valuable in the street that no one claims so you get to keep it guilt free.

Eat a truly exceptional meal

Love someone worth the bother

—Accidentally fart in front of someone that you admire or have great respect for.

—Have an ex that dumped you show up with their new boyfriend/girlfriend shortly after the fact.

—See snow fall in big giant puffs, just like the snow in A Charlie Brown Christmas.

—Eat a piece of cheese so delicious that you actually feel like you just had a big O in your mouth.

—Accidentally touch a chili pepper and then touch your eye, and feel like you might go blind.

—Have a friend or loved one disappear (not die, just leave) from your life or stop communicating with you, with no explanation and no apparent reason.

—Witness a car accident as it happens.

—Get kissed by someone in a way that makes you compare that particular kiss to every other kiss that you receive from here on out.

—Laugh so hard at a friend’s joke that you literally spit liquid.

—Have someone shush you, after you’ve been laughing and having the best time of your life, and have that same person remind you that your voice carries and it’s very late.

—Walk through a forest, and really feel the spongy carpet of needles beneath your feet, and really hear the crackle of dried oak leaves as you crunch step, crunch step your way along the path that you are creating. And really hear the whirrrrrrrr whooooosh of the wind dancing through the tree tops and actually spot the woodpecker that is creating the cunk, cunk, cunk sound that is echoing across the woods. And realizing that during this time, in this place, that those are the only things that matter, if only for a few fleeting moments.

—Ask someone online if English is their first language and have that person angrily accuse you of being a racist (even though you can’t see them and have no idea what their race might be).

—Smell and taste Cardamom for the first time : – P

GabrielsLamb's avatar

@Blackberry As long as it’s not the phone or an angry bird going up the butt I imagine it would be somewhat safe… Maybe?


GabrielsLamb's avatar

@Kardamom I got most of those.

Blackberry's avatar

@GabrielsLamb Yes, I would hope for many that their experience was pleasurable.

tinyfaery's avatar

Fall in love.

GabrielsLamb's avatar

@Blackberry I think in this particuar case… Once is QUITE enough. Live and learn.

Kardamom's avatar

@GabrielsLamb Even the bad ones? Those ones sucked pretty bad.

AshLeigh's avatar

Obviously play Angry Birds. ;)

Kardamom's avatar

@digitalimpression Actually, I don’t think that most people will ever experience Fluther, not even once. We’re the lucky ones : )

digitalimpression's avatar

@Kardamom I know.. I just couldn’t think of anything else. It’s my fallback. =)
