On this Date in 1986 (Part VI); Or, If I Could Go Back
in Time and Kick My Own Ass, I Would Do It Today

As always, background info for this series is located here. Previous entries here, here, here, and here.

On this date, according to my 1986 Roanoke (Va.) Catholic High School Calendar, the following significant, completely unrelated events took place:
Got my fuckin' drivers' license. Got wasted off gas from 6th period chemistry. Slept all afternoon. Worked [at Kroger] 7-11 p.m.

For quite obvious reasons, I can only barely recall the lifestyle described in this entry. Nonetheless, when I try to visualize the combination of nihilism and optimism that defines the human condition, this pretty much does the trick.
