1. Yes, painful as failure can be, it shapes us for the better if we’ll let it! You may remember this incident, or at least the bench. (Although I don’t recall ever seeing you sitting on it!)

  1. I’ll keep this in front of me whenever I’m tempted to think I have to do something perfectly or not at all. (Which is most of the time.). Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t think they should have made you sit on the bench, but you handled the embarrassment magnificently.

    1. Thank you, Rhonda. Times were different in the 70s and 80s. But it affected me for sure! It’s good to hear from a fellow perfectionist! I appreciate your support so much.
