In highschool, we were wasted, my friend told me that the little girl she babysits is actually her child that she gave up for adoption a few years ago. No idea my good (lesbian) friend had a child at 14. Not to mention a child that I’ve met before and had no idea it was hers. 10.
We have this friend who has a lightning bolt tattoo that we always make fun of, mostly because he won’t tell us what it means and it looks like the Gatorade symbol. One night a couple of months ago, he and I get drunk off straight Vodka. He starts talking about getting more tattoo’s and his ideas so I asked him if he’d tell me what the lightning bolt meant. He said back in 2008, he was going through a really rough patch and he started thinking about suicide. On one particularly hard night, he finally decided to go through with it. He had access to a couple of guns, took one and put it in his mouth and pulled the trigger. The gun jammed. He said the instant he pulled that trigger he regretted it beyond words and had never been more grateful for life. Apparently, that night there was a really rare thunder and lightning storm (we almost never get those here) and he saw the flash of lightning and realized his time wasn’t up yet. 11.
Friend found his dad in bed with one of his friends. 12.
That his dad wasn’t really a diplomat always abroad. He was a heroin addict that OD’d and died. I know it could happen to anyone but this guy is so polished, well adjusted, and just awesome.. you’d never be able to tell he comes from such a place of hurt. He told me all the f*cked up shit his dad did to his family before he died. Even breaking in and stealing all their valuables to sell after his mom kicked him out. Back to Top
