Obviously, your friend is much wiser than you and has far more to offer but he unfortunately wasn't born with the financial advantage that you have. Also, he'll never make it to Viet Nam because he's going to die before the sun rises, probably when someone dares him to scale an electrical tower or dive into a quarry.
Now about you. You should be wistful, without really knowing why. Just kind of wonder why everything doesn't mean more. Why every footstep you take isn't weighed down with resonating import. The awesome part is you're totally gonna get laid when you and your girl/boyfriend have sex for the first and last time and it'll feel like rape. When the sun rises and you don't know that your friend just died, throw a beer can into a vast space, like the quarry (assuming your friend didn't just die there. If you're aware of your friend's death, we understand that you'll be at the hospital slapping walls or demanding information from nurses so we'll just go home). We wanna watch the beer can float into so much wide open nothing because it'll symbolize how indifferent the future is as regards you and the choices you'll soon make.
