Back in 1986 I was a cocky young thing, full of bravado and bluster. Well that's a lie. I've never really been that person. But back when the original Top Gun came out we were all so young and full of that certain kind of confidence that only 20-year-olds can have. The idea that the world is your oyster and your life will unfold just as you want it to. How naive we were.
