Thank you for posting this.

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

My H keeps talking about this story. He can't get over how this MM with a great job did something so risky and dumb and is losing it all. I keep thinking honey you have no idea how risky and dumb your W has been. The motorcycle really hits home to me. Those rides were the epitome of my A. A true escape just the 2 of us, sometimes it would cross my mind about what would happen if we crashed...I obviously didn't care at the time. As the author of the article said, my life was out of control.

The MC was the xap's pride and joy. I was always too afraid to ride with him, for this reason exactly.

Ah, yes. How about the time my truck threw a tie rod on the way to meet with xAP? Fortunately I hadn't gotten very far on the way and was still near enough to home that I could have explained where I was when it broke. I was always so relieved when I was back in my own territory, just in case something happened.

The chances we all take are breathtaking. I have so much compassion now for people who really f*ck up. I know now how easy it is to lose control of your life. How it's only a little thing at first and grows until you realize there's no easy way out anymore.

And then there was the parking ticket I got while parked in front of xAP's house on street cleaning day.

Yep...and the motorcycle thing really hits home for me. Many, many rides on the back of xap's Harley...flying down the expressway while he is trying to show off whatever pathetic qualities he lacked by going insane speeds of 80+...yeah, and I hung on for dear life. How he never crashed I'll never know. I guess my angels were doing overtime.
