Not the face!

Well, I've just returned from my first ever Tae Kwon Do tournament. I placed 4th out of 8 in my division, which strikes me as a pretty good placement: I'm in no danger of developing an ego from this -- I was eliminated in the second round. But, the four judges scored it as a loss, a loss, a loss, and a tie. A tie! That's enough to convince me that it wasn't a complete rout, so I can safely declare it a good day.

Well, almost. After my competition, I was watching another match with one of our class instructors. Just out of curiousity, I asked, "So -- have there been any grievous violations of etiquette that we'll hear about next week?"

His smile dimmed a little. "We'll talk about that later."

Uh-oh. I know I stuck my tongue out at the camera during a group shot, but I didn't think anyone was going to notice until after the photos were developed.

If I don't post anything on Tuesday, it's because I'm still doing push-ups.

Were they actually using a film camera? These days problems with photos are discovered much sooner than after development. :-)

I'm just hoping against hope that the camera that took the offending picture actually belonged to the parent of some other student, and that it'll take a little while for the grapevine to initialise.

It's a long shot, I know.
