Ok, so about 3 1/2 weeks ago or so, I go through this horrible break-up with my girlfriend - ok, I got dumped - it happens to everyone, once in awhile. I really feel like crap but what's a guy to do? Buy a new uke of course! I pick up an all-flamed spalted maple Kala tenor from MGM for myself to play away my blues (if only I knew how to play the blues). I find that I get several layers of enjoyment with uke-shopping therapy: my UAS is satisfied, I get a new uke to cheer myself up from the sadness and playing the uke is very theraputic in itself.
So here's the fun part: before I've even received my Kala, my ex-girlfriend calls me up and tells me she wants to get back together again and she bought me a Pono PKT2 (to say "sorry" and "happy birthday" - coming up soon)!!! (well, I had to purchase it myself since she doesn't have an eBay account but that's just splitting hairs)
Holy Crap! I'm on Cloud 9 right now: we're back together AND I've got a Pono! Moral of the story: ukes make a great gift for every occassion! (and MGM is there for you in good times and bad - lol!)

I hope it works out for you two.... cause in my opinion, a girl who buys you a uke is certainly a keeper ;)

It's funny how things work out sometimes. Well, it looks like this this cloud's silver lining was actually made of curly koa!

Bro, be careful, pay enough attention to your girl so that she won't be pissed off again. With two new ukes, that will be difficult. Good luck with that.

MGM, and his ebay store is like therapy. Calms you down when you feel like raging.

Ukes will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no ukes.

Nope, but I can think of a few suitable substitutions for 'ukes'.
