Since this has to be at least 75 words long, I will have to mention that it will have HEROICS! (I've already mentioned that several times, here and there), close calls, near disasters, frightening near-misses, sweaty moments when I didn't think I would make it, some incredible, near-superhuman efforts that will be forever unsung. and a possible serious threat to the tablecloth and a consequent loss of face to myself. This latter is important, since it involves traditional Chinese hosts and guests, and I am a white boy.
As soon as I write it.
