I should note that I had yet to notice that there was another CD in there,
outside of the rumor from Micah; and I certainly have yet to listen to it.
Therefore, this has yet to happen to me, but I really, really, really
appreciate the warning.
I usually never play any music for someone else until I've listened to it
often enough to become very familiar with it, so I guess the odds are
lower of my doing the above, but, still, I really, really, really
appreciate the warning.
