You did the best you could, given that you had no idea how dumb I was. If
you encounter anyone else who says they don't know the meaning of certain
specialty terms, believe them... People sometimes find themselves suddenly
faced with situations so foreign that they have difficulty even describing
Seeing that leak gradually slowing down and stopping in response to the
