Memorable Experience Growing up, I had frequently heard the expression, "you gotta get back on the horse," but did not really give much thought to how that statement might apply to my life. I rode horses frequently, but I was a good rider and had been riding since I was very young, and did not give much thought to the idea of falling. After all, falling off a horse was something.

The first thing that stood out to me was what we are currently working on, description. From the beginning Petroski uses description to tell his story.

Of course I have made mistakes, but I have also learned to evaluate what was the reason for my mistake and correct that error. You are commenting using your WordPress.
