What I Will Miss/What I Won’t Miss

Posted on Jul 8, 2012 in Blogging, Life, Listicles | 26 comments

Today’s Monday Listicles comes at the suggestion of Deborah at Mannahatta Mamma, inspired by the late great Nora Ephron.   In her last book she made a list of Ten Thing she Will Miss (when she dies) and Ten Things she Will not.  Deborah and Stasha are encouraging us to come up with a list of our own.  Before I give you my list, I want to encourage you to check out Deborah’s page (links above).  Her story is fascinating.  She is an ex-New Yorker who moved to Abu Dhabi with her family in August, 2011.

Okay, without further ado, here is my list.  I am going to start with what I won’t miss so I can end on a positive note.

Things I Won’t Miss When I Die

1.  People who walk their dogs at the same time as me.

2.  Mean people.

3.  “Homeless People” with signs.

4.   Jealousy

5.  Mental Illness (mine and others’)

6.  Crimes against children.

7.  Organized religion.

8.  The way my body looks.

9.  Chin hair.

10.  My newly sensitive and super itchy skin/rashes.

Things I Will Miss When I Die

1.  Wine and chocolate

2.  Running/walking with my dogs

3.  Sleeping next to Hot Joe

4.  Noah kisses

5.  Santa Barbara

6.  Driving in the Maverick

7.  Playing the time game

8.  Music

9.  Family and friends

10.  Wine and chocolate

What about you?  What will you miss?  What won’t you miss?

    Wine and chocolate. And wine. And chocolate.

    I have a new weird hair on the annoying bump on the side of my nose. Frick.

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      Thank you for understanding. Please send a picture of the hair on the bump on your nose. I am strangely fascinated.

    People actually have the nerve to walk their dogs at the same time as you? Horrifying. They should be shot. I laughed out loud at “homeless people with signs”. So homeless people without signs are okay? And we’re not even going to talk about chin hair. Stupid stupid chin hair. Great lists, sister-wife!

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      Other peoples’ dogs distract my dogs and the people are always stupid. The homeless MAN without a sign here just walks the streets smiling. He can stay. I assume you have a goatee as well? Sister-wives are so similar.

    But disorganized religion is okay?

    Chin hair, I only have one, but it is of brute strength.

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      Disorganized religion is even WORSE!!!! Funny that my mom said the same thing. You only have ONE chin hair. I bow down to you. I have about 1200

    Thanks for the shoutout!! What a great list. Kisses from kids are right up there with best-things-ever. I don’t have a chin hair but I have eyebrows that could easily become beards if I didn’t prune them almost daily. Ah the joy….

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      I love that!!!! Eyebrows that could become beards if you don’t prune them. I could so overshare here.

  5. Stasha

    I could have just written my top ten favorite chocolates tobe honest. Yep, peeps with signs equally bug me!! Great list xo

    Just thinking about skin rashes is making me itch. I’m sure a little wine would help that but alas, it’s only 8:25 am. Well, at least there is chocolate. Ellen

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      The only chocolate we have is fudgcicles and if I had one at any time of the day Hot Joe would know. From work. Bastard.

  7. Lenore

    Chin hairs. Hahahahahaha! Wait. I mean, I cannot relate at all to that thought.
    I won’t miss wine, but I will miss Guinness. And ice cream – but not enjoyed at the same time.

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      Guinness? I’m afraid of Guinness, I won’t lie. I would think that ice cream would be your top three.

  8. Mom

    Miss – The touch of Rick’s hands o my lower back and wrapped around my hands and the rest of me, the smell and hugs of my boys, the smiles and hugs of my girls, my wonderful brother, my sweet dogs, the sound of the birds in the morning, the softness of a new baby, FOOD! especially carbs, my dear friends and everything else that makes me smile.

    Not miss – dumb people, wars and fighting, organized religions that just separates people, illness and suffering, negativity, dust, commercials, flys, natural disasters.

    • Kimberly Pugliano

      I would miss Uncle Craig too and the boys’ hugs. And DUST – I would not miss that either! Some commercials are funny, though.

    I haven’t found any chin hairs yet, but it won’t be long since I get the wild throat hairs and the odd crazy-professor eyebrow hair, so they’re closing in on my chin from two fronts.

  10. Deb

    Homeless people with signs – yes I agree. Especially at stop lights because I feel sorry for them and irritated with them for giving me the stink eye because I won’t roll down my window.

  11. Ducky

    Chin hairs, nipple hairs, gray hairs…all those things no one ever tells you about getting older! I wouldn’t miss my aching knee or stiff joints either!

  12. Jackie

    I love your list Kim! And I’d like to add, the worst are those mean homeless people with signs who seem to always find my car at the red lights.

  13. Nami

    Chin hair. It’s the reason I banned “The Three Little Pigs” from our reading list.
