a part of me just died

I was just playing my electric guitar, trying to learn the solo for Cowboys From Hell (tough undertaking, I know) when all of a sudden, right after that part with the hammer-ons at the 11th fret, you know, where the solo starts I felt a slight whipping sensation on my right forearm and noticed the sound stopped somehow.
My first instinct was, without even ng down at the guitar, to scream "SON OF A BITCH!!!!" then I looked at my guitar and saw the high e string hanging loose from the bridge and after closer inspection i saw that it snapped right at the tunning peg....... a part of me died in that moment
This was a HUGE bummer for me 'cause that string set had lasted me since I bought this guitar about 6 months ago, and, surprisingly, they didn't feel rusty or did they sound dimmed, at least not enough to indicate the need to change them.
It sucks because now I gotta go and buy a whole new set of strings since they don't sell them individually at my music store. Besides, When I change only one string it usually looks or sounds quite different from the rest of the set so I change them all in full.... anyway, I know this sounds silly, but I'm gonna keep that set of strings, if anything for the cool memoires and fun tiems that I had with them (that's my first and only electric, so I'm fairly attached to it) :'(
