Rona: This is impossible. I’m never going to hit the target. Why is it that I’m the only one in this archery class who has no aim?
Leonardo: You’re doing fine. I can tell you’re new to this. It takes some practice to develop any precision.
Rona: But you seem to be picking it up quickly.
Leonardo: I’m taking this class as a refresher. My father taught me the rudiments of archery when I was a kid and I thought I would take it up again.
Rona: You’re really good. You’ve hit the bullseye three times already.
Leonardo: I’m using a much more forgiving bow than you are. If I aim for the target, I can usually get the arrow in the neighborhood of the bullseye.
Rona: You’re just trying to make me feel better. I’m hitting wide of the mark every time!
Leonardo: I think your arms are too tense and that tension is ruining your accuracy. Here, let me help you.
Rona: Watch out. With my aim, I could take you out.
Leonardo: I’ll take my chances.
