I was working really hard on this, and I got to the point of: "Stop touching it. You're making it worse."
I don't know why I decided this perspective was a great idea, but it turned out to be more trouble than it was worth. I ended up cheating it a bit, but I'm sure a perspective guru would call me out on it. *cough* You know who you are.
Ah well, practice is practice, right?
