Sir,

Thanks for the launch. I'm not normally an inconsiderate ass-hat.... I was in a rush, which is no excuse. Let's see, I hooked my lines on your kite, was going to self launch upwind of you, and was basically being lame.

Thanks for being polite, cool, and throwing my kite up. I deserved much less.

Best,
Eric

Way to own it.

We've all done things at times that in hindsite we should have done differently.

The difference in owning our mistakes vs denying them defines who we are.

And of course... Learning from our mistakes such that we don't keep repeating.

Hey Gman, reminds me a little of how you and I first met, via your flyingsquirrel beach catapult bouncing off of my back and finishing with a sandy yardsale landing.

Ahhh..... the good ole sandspit days.....! When high speed body contact created friendships forever.
