Unique

I enjoy listening to people story telling about memorable occasions in their life. The stories are fascinating, funny and tear wrenching! Great stories to share with family and friends over a chat.

Top notch stuff

Amazingly well curated collection of stories, all of which offers amazing insights into the minds and hearts of people. Some make you grin to yourself like a idiot in the subway, some make you pretty close to tears but none of them ever disappoint.
