“If you hate your parents, the man or the establishment, don’t show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents, outearn them, outlive them, and know more than they do.”
Nikki posted this on her blog (as quoted by Henry Rollins) with the sentiment that someone understood. Just so you know, dude, so do I. I don’t hate my mom, and I would never advance my life to show her up, but my dad…whole ‘nother story. Remind me to show you his response to the blog post I took down (in shame), but keep considering re-posting.
