“I look away from her.
“I have felt like an old man my whole life. And they get to have fun and snort their fucking drugs and get wasted and it doesn’t matter who they’re hurting because they’re young and having fun and I’m a judgmental prick if I say anything.”
“Do you think they’re having fun?”
I don’t have an answer for her.
“I’ll never be able to compete against it.”
“Maybe you don’t understand how powerful it is,” she says.
“How powerful is it?”
“Very.”
“And that’s an excuse?”
“No.”
“When do they get to take responsibility?”
“For themselves?” she asks.
“Yes.”
“Always,” she says.”
