I just finished reading this and wept and cried and bawled and when I was done bawling I decided to picspam it so I am. I'm willing to defend my choices to the death, so.

"You don’t work. One group claims women support you. Another group claims you’re impotent."
"No," I said. "I just had an accident."
"Listen, Jake," he leaned forward on the bar. "Don’t you ... ever get the feeling that all your life is going by and you’re not taking advantage of it? Do you realize you’ve lived nearly half the time you have to live already?"
