To Daphne: you're quite right, you can look at it like I've made sooo many mistakes(which , by the way I have, but that's just a secret between you and I (and of course, several thousand other people who may be reading this right now,) but LIFE is a learning experience, and even though we would like to sort of buff over those little (tiny in the scheme of things) mistakes, we still made them, however we did LEARN from them. So don't break your leg kicking yourself in the butt, IT HAPPENS. Smile the next time and remember, NOT AGAIN! i'm different now. TAKE CARE V A L
