I just imagined him stumbling around in the garden. Anything could have happened. (It turned out that Eric Clapton was asleep on a logpile in the basement.)

I turned him down - and, for four years, he became a drug addict. At first, I felt guilt. Then I felt anger because it was totally irrational of him to blame me for something he was probably going to do anyway; it was very selfish and destructive.
