"Spin" in aviation training: a "stall" or loss of lift, a subsequent nose-down spin, the specific actions required for recovery, and the feeling, after recovery, that you could tackle absolutely anything!

Always Read Directions.
Recently, I spent part of a weekend in the city. The frustrating thing was that, though I was buying the parking tickets from the machines and booths, I kept getting fined. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. I checked the street signs. I checked the time restrictions. And then, just before I was to head in to an art show, I realized what I was doing wrong. Right there on the ticket, in red letters, it said:
"Place Face Up On Dash."
So I did. It was uncomfortable. I had to get up on my knees on the front seat to do it but I didn't get any more tickets. I did, however, miss the art show.
