    Every event is a "once in a lifetime" event as no 2 events can ever be the same.

    I disagree...I also wrote once in a lifetime experience.

    I thought I wrote experience.  I swear, between my bad eyesight and google spell check I can't tell what I type out anymore.

      That’s not what I meant at all! I only meant that there is only one “first time” that I read it, could have read it, would have read it, etc.
      Even reading it numerous times cannot absolve the fact that the unique experience of reading it the first time can never be redone. If you or others think it’s not a good question, I disagree with that sentiment.

      Now that you’ve changed the wording of the question after some of us already answered it, some answers are either out of context or appear to make no sense. Mine is one of those.

    My first stay in the mental hospital. There were others, but this first time eye-opening. Another time was the shock-treatments. There were others, but the first time was eye-opening. This post was edited by Zack at September 18, 2022 7:27 AM MDT

    One day we learn you were a sewer worker and now you tell us you are also a ballet dancer. I suspect you have other hidden talents you haven't yet shared with us.

    Possibly, ha. :)
    I have been told numerous that I have a variety of interests and I do have/ have had various kinds of jobs. :)

    And in case you didn't see under Thriftymaid's reply:
    With my answer, I was more thinking about how my dear friendships with so many of the people involved with that dance company, especially the company founder and her husband, have benefitted my life. I was in a stage production of a musical and the founder  of this dance company was the choreographer for the show. She liked my work, she invited me to be a part of her Stravinsky ballet. And it started all my formal training in ballet, tap and modern dance. :)

    You've been keeping your talent a secret.  I am happy to know this, my friend.
