It occurred to me the other day, in a bout of unaccustomed modesty, that newer readers of my blog may not be aware of some of the gems of blogger wisdom and humor that are hidden away in the archives of Proper Course. So I thought it might be fun occasionally to dig into the treasure chest and show off some of these nuggets.
And then I thought it would make sense if I had some kind of theme to the archive posts that I selected rather than just picking out two or three random posts from yesteryear. So the theme of this blast from the past is "Revelations"... posts in which I reveal aspects of my character or psyche or general incompetence that may not be entirely flattering.
Think of it as redressing the balance for all the posts I have written this month making fun of other people such as Larry Ellison, girls in keelboats, and men who are excessively proud of the length of their thingies.
First up is a post from January 2006 Overheard on a Run in which I rashly revealed that I have a phobia of having my photo taken with a fairy.
Second is a post from January 2007 Broken Record in which I candidly confided about how I broke my own record for most capsizes in one regatta.
And third is a post from January 2008 Airline Paranoia in which I courageously confessed to a deep-seated psychological fear of being separated from my tiller.
