Ever been having a good time in your life, then something knocks you off ofyour feet?

#1
It happened to me today. My friends have been as nice as ever, I'm in with a chance of going out with one friend I REALLY like, school work is at a decent standard, home life is pretty calm and peaceful etc etc.

But today... not the best news of my life. My granddad has just been diagnosed with some advanced form of cancer. My mum didn't specify what type, likely to be lung cancer seeing as he is a heavy smoker. Doctors have estimated that he only has another 6 to 8 weeks to live.

I'm not particularly close to my granddad, haven't seen him in a few years, but when I was with him, he was a really cool and kind person to be with. It's a terrible shock to me and my family.

So UG, my question is: Ever been having a good stage in your life, then something catches you off guard?
NOPE.

So I, with a broomstick(Just in case) walk right where they can see me and I said:
"You kids ever taken a broom up the ass?"
The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

You can always move on to another instrument, and bring your melodic sense from guitar with you. The saxophone or singing is always cool!

Nothing as bad as the majority of these stories, but I used to value my virginity. I wanted to lose it to someone I really cared for(My girlfriend), and wanted it to be the best. So the other day, she is over my house. We start messin around, and she mad a move for sex. We start, and I am happy as because i'm losing it to someone I want to. All is going well. I hear a car pull up. Mums home. We didn't get caught, but the way I imagined losing my virginity and the way it happened was completely different.
