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:
