    Well what would life be if you’ve haven’t gone through any of it? it would be boring without any disappointments and set backs, but its great for all those who don’t want to get into any scrapes. you should try to adding “putting an orange too close to your eye and isn’t a good idea” that’s a good one it hurts horribly!
