Well, the rest of your life up to
the point when you are
diagnosed with cancer. I get what
you’re thinking. You’re 16 — you’
re invincible, just like all your
buddies. If you were to jump
ahead 33 years, you couldn’t
write a better dream than the one
your life is going to be.
Dear 16-year-old Curt,
Tomorrow at lunch, a kid is going to dare
you to take a dip of Copenhagen. If you say
yes, like I did, you’ll be addicted for the
rest of your life.
