This is what I call a “Woulda, shoulda, coulda.”  I was close, so very, very close!  I woulda used the colored markers if there were a couple of more colors.  I shoulda not have mentioned my solution was in production somewhere.  Yes, I know one cannot use solutions like cookie cutters.  My proposed solution contained the changes I felt were necessary to fit the situation.  I coulda won if I had stated that.   Woulda, shoulda, coulda…

Note to self: color = good, no color = bad.  If there aren’t enough colors, use them anyway. 

I must remember to point out the changes made in a solution to customize it to the situation or else appropriateness will be suspect.  Got it.  I will not make that mistake again.

I truly am glad Chris won today.  Don’t get me wrong, I wish I would have won, but since I didn’t, I’m glad it was Chris.  He is a really sharp guy and he deserved it.  He just better not win another one…just kidding! (no I’m not)
