Fill in the blank: "I've always wanted to ____".

Asked by bob_ (19685points) August 9th, 2010

Inspired by this question. I guess some would list the same things, while others would list things they’ve done and they’d like to repeat. In any case, what’s something you’d like to do?

“Always” is a long time. I can’t think of anything that fits that bill. If you had said , “I’ve wanted to __ for quite a while” it would be ride my bike. (too hot)

I’ve always wanted to get in a cab and say ‘follow that car!’

@rpmpseudonym YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hip hip hurray for Richard!!!! now, we need one more person to cheer to make it a crowd!

JilltheTooth's avatar

yay will that do? I haven’t been on many threads with @rpmpseudonym so I cautiously round out your crowd.

rpm_pseud0name's avatar

@JilltheTooth How have we not crossed paths yet? All you need to know is that I’m a delightful person who has been snuck into the 10k mansion by an ‘anonymous’ passerby. Either way – thanks for cheers, both of you.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’ve not even been here 2 weeks yet, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of each other! I’m a pretty delightful person, too, BTW! So, on the basis of all that, I amend my previous answer to YAY!
