The Apprentice



I'm finally pursuing one of my goals, and that is learning the art of custom tailoring. I am apprenticing at Charlie's Custom Tailor. My mentor is young but very old school about his teachings. Like today for example, he tied my "thimbled" middle finger to my right palm, and I had to keep it like that and work for 8 hours. This was especially difficult because I am left handed. It was so frustrating because I couldn't stitch in a straight line due to my handicap. No gripes here though. The pain goes away after a nice "fanger massage" but the knowledge I gain will stay with me forever. Muahahahahaha.
