This story is broken down into two parts.
Part I 'The Road to Perfection', takes place literally on the road to Boston.
Part II Giving up on Perfection', can be summed up by this quote from my story:
"Regret is not the result of failure. It is a consequence of giving up. You will look back forever on what if, but you will one day find comfort in the defeat of giving it your all."
