Difficulty level: 2/5
You're going to need some help from your friends on this one. Post the following question on Facebook (or write it on a piece of notebook paper and pass it around to your friends, IRL-style):
I'm writing a poem about you and me, and I need your help. How do you know me? How did we meet? Leave a comment below. Then, in a couple days, I'll post the poem I wrote out of those comments as a status update. Love to you all and thanks.
(Edit that as necessary.) Give it a day--or more or less, depends on your friends and how chatty they are--and then collect all the comments. What story about yourself can you tell, using these details and no others? Don't forget to post the finished poem on your Facebook, just like you promised.
