  1. Why don’t we encourage failure more!!
    Cue….and here’s one I prepared earlier…..demonstrates a disastrous piece of cooking or art!

    Sadly, we are all set up to fail!
    I do so hope the poor girl gets a few more days of wonderful innocence before she becomes a dull eyed moron like the rest of us!
    Cue….end of rant……embarrassment……delete comment……nah, I feel better!
