We have ALL made dumb mistakes, and don’t you even try denying it.
Maybe you forgot to turn on your AAD and the entire plane had to stop so you could turn it on? Maybe you downsized too fast, against everyone’s advice, and pounded yourself into the ground? Maybe you got on that load when the wind sock – and your elders sitting down – should have told you otherwise and you ended up in a tree?
In skydiving, BASE jumping, paragliding, speed flying — when you seriously cock something up, how do you get back on the horse?
Is it a phrase you say to yourself? A trusted friend to put things in perspective? Run and hide until people have forgotten? Mega mea culpa on the DZ’s facebook page?
