  9. The time I almost killed my friend because the car I was driving started to spin.
  10. The time I got mono.
  11. The time my friend waited 6 months to tell me she had an abortion because she thought my Christianity would cause me to hate/judge her.
  12. The time I mentored a 14-year-old foster kid and she died in a car wreck less than a year into us speaking daily (or more).
  13. The time I ran a construction company startup, and made more money than I could spend.
