A Meeting Between Breadfruit

Breadfruit, which I'd heard of but never thought much about before today, is a fruit/vegetable found in Hawaii. The breadfruit tree yields many fruit each year, and they are large. They are gluten-free, loaded with nutrients, and if you want to know much more than that, go here (but check the Urban Dictionary at your own peril!).

With that out of the way, what the heck am I writing about?

The breadfruit brought me a lovely experience.

I'm still a Facebook participant and yesterday succumbed to a post someone put up that went like this:

I think most of you know or remember me, no matter when our paths may have crossed. Maybe some like me and others don't, but if you are on my Friends List, I want to believe that you like me. 😊
I would love to see if we can still communicate with more than just likes and gifs and actually write something to each other. I decided to participate in an experience called "A Meeting Between Breadfruit". The idea is to see who reads a post without a photo. 
We are so immersed in technology that we have forgotten the most important thing: good friendship.
If no one reads this message it will be a short social experiment. But if you read it until the end, I want you to make a comment with ONE word about us. For example, a place, an object, a person, a moment with which you relate or remember me by.
Then copy this text and stick it on your wall (don't share) and I'll go to your wall to leave a word that reminds me of you. Please don't write any comments if you don't have time to copy the text. That would ruin the experiment. Let's see who took time to read and answer according to the shared story beyond Facebook!! Remember... using only ONE word.

I was [figuratively] blown away by the response. I heard from a childhood playmate, a Weight Watchers leader, a seminary classmate, a neighbor from 1968, a teacher/friend, many quilters, and a girl who asked me for a rubber band in 2001. Among others. One word at a time.

My day was filled with memories. Wonderful memories. I don't play a lot of Facebook games and I'm surely glad that I played this one.
