Oh yeah? Well, I've done LOTS dumber things than you!!

Try mixing up a liter of RA-4 processing chemicals - and realizing I was developing *FILM* - C-41 - just in time to avoid pouring it into the tank. That was the latest - yesterday - in a l-o-n-g line of mistakes.

Then there was the time in a "fine art" (hmm... Freudian slip... I typed "fun art", before I corrected it) session, where I went through a whole set of absolutely *brilliant* and beautiful poses - with an empty magazine in the 'Blad.
I tried to save things by saying (after my obvious stunned reaction), "Uh, wait - I'm going to take one more roll..." The model looked at me and said, "Nice try, slick - an empty magazine." So much for acting "cool".

Cursing ... A freind of mine's father owned and operated a Beauty Salon. You should hear the language those women use. Enough to embarass a troop of drunken Combat Engineers....
