We've all experienced chilling changes. A loved one unexpectedly dies and in an instant life flips upside-down. You have a shimmery feeling in your gut that you have just met THE ONE, but then he tells you how long he's been president of Blink 182's fan club. There's no way he could ever turn-you-on again and you escape out the bathroom window.
That's life. Unpredictable... Irrational. We have to adjust somehow. These stories are all over the map.
