Unusual Things

A lovely young woman wrote on her Facebook page this morning and got me thinking. She’s hung out with my kids since middle school and is now a college graduate. And an amazing woman. She asked the question:

What is something you have done that is so unusual that you are certain you are the only person on my friends list of 500 to have done it? 

I typed one answer. Then came up with a few more. Here are my answers:

Gave birth to seven Duncans. ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป

  1. Your list is incredible! What a ride you’ve had so far–I’m hoping we will get to continue to read about what’s to come via your blog (keep writing is what I am trying to say!). I need a writing prompt, and I may take this and run with it. A very good read!
