Friend Makin’ Mondays: Have You Ever?

Last week I saw similar questions popping up on my Facebook feed. I think this is too much to answer there, but it’s perfect for FMM. I tried to create some variations, and I’m looking forward to seeing your answers.


If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen.

      A couple of years ago a friend called me because she was nervous that her relative had passed away. I looked through his window, and he was lifeless on the floor. It took quite a while to get that image out of my head, but I’m glad I’m the one who saw it instead of my friend.
