This is the person I want to be when I grow up. I’m a cautious and responsible person. I eat my vegetables and pay my taxes. And how for just one day, I’d like to be the kind of person who could say, “I never learned nothing from playing it safe, I say fate should not tempt me.” and mean it.

Or the kind of person who could cut the deck right in half and play from either side.

Until then, I’ll live vicariously through Mary Chapin Carpenter.
