Sweaty Palms

I find this to be a very difficult thing to do: to actually tell the print-shop folks that yes, your last file was the final  one and they can go ahead with printing it. It is difficult to decide that this is 'good enough' and it won't embarrass you, because at this stage in the process even a missing comma embarrasses you. And given my handicapped English there is always something to find.

I had hoped that giving the final nod would have given me more pleasure, a sort of narcissistic release. Although I am happy to clean it of my priority list, it turns out to be just another experience on the list of been-there-done-that-never-again.

Time for new adventures again!
