Why yes we did.

I am ashamed. I have lost face. I will commit Seppuku now.

Would you be my Second?

For hociR will not be an acceptable Second.

Depends. Does it mean I'll have to clean up the mess? If so, I'd suggest we do as always: fix the problem with duct tape.

Why not make him your First? He who fights and runs away, gets to fight another day. Doesn't work for possum or armadillos. Running is not their forte. They can move fast when confronted by K3 sales staff though.

Duct tape over "hociR" ... now there's a good idea ... could even be some of that colored duct tape ... "Construction Orange" comes to mind ... J (...but, haven't we already been over this one, too ?)

I didn't really specify which problem to fix with duct tape, though...

Hah! To be the First you have to have a minimum of courage and honour. To misquote you: He who runs away lives to run another day!

No, let's stick to the duct tape. Blood is too messy anyway.

Because first doesn't work.

I can't run anymore since they replaced my hip.
And no, the possum and armadillos do seem to have trouble with running. Maybe they have artificial hips too.

Although I agree the K3 sales staff may make anyone run.

Yes, duct tape is the better choice.

Or maybe a Sharpie!

Scratching with a nice X-acto blade is not bad either ...

Another thing (thing, not a problem mind you) is that since the PENTAX logo on the back of my K-5 is under the glass covering the LCD, it's very hard to cover it properly with a sticker with the mark of hociR. Which means the K-5 can not be upgraded to a K-3.

Yeah, 5 > 3, so an upgrade it can't be. I did get through some maths at the University, after all.

"5 is greater than 3, so an upgrade it can't be"
You're a poet, and we didn't know it. Does your nose show it? Is it a Longfellow?

A slam poet, perhaps? Maybe I have a bright future as a rap artist? Or a wrap artist? With duct tape and all that.
