Every once in a while, in the midst of a perfectly normal moment, I have a sudden understanding of what it would be like to lack impulse control. Nudging the fine line between control and chaos, I feel the freedom of throwing a glass against a wall, swinging something heavy in a crowded room, or letting the car steer itself where it will on the freeway. For that brief moment, chaos knows my name. Then it turns its attention elsewhere, and my life continues as it did before, the order of the world around me oblivious to how precariously it survives these moments in everyone, every day.
