to those who never made a mistake

Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, I admire your professionalism.  Who among us hasn’t been involved in a situation trying to improve a situation, only to make it much worse?  In your shoes, I certainly wouldn’t have been able to restrain myself to such a tame expletive as “Oh, great!”  But you acknowledged your mistake, kept your composure, and didn’t miss a beat as you continued to execute your job.

I’m reminded of the time I was heating a can of Campbell’s soup on my electronic stove at home, trying to save a few bucks, only to spill the entire can of soup over the electronic panel, thus destroying a $500 stove.
