The Art of the Midlife Crisis, How Addicts and Rehabs Struggle Under Quarantine and TikTok Teens High on Nutmeg
When I was 25, I bought a used motorcycle. I didn’t know how to ride it, per se, but ride — and crash — I did, anyways. My friends all made fun of me: “Oh, look, there goes Jeff on his quarter-life-crisis mobile,” “what a dumb bike,” yada yada yada.
And it was dumb, I admit it. I stopped riding once I realized it actually scared the shit out of me, and the motorcycle sat on the side of my house collecting rust for years before I finally “sold” it to Kars4Kids.
