Kent Myers made the following astute comment about pinball, once a passion
"Every time you try something new you will get lower scores for a while,
then eventually better scores if you keep at it. Playing pinball well may
look easy, but it isn't, and it doesn't come naturally."
This reminds me of skiing with my pre-teen daughter. She will come in
after a day on the slopes and proudly declare, "I didn't fall once today!"
To which I tell her, "Then you didn't improve!"
