Perfection. Just what is that?
According to the
dictionary it means, "lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind;

about the illusive nature of perfection when I was young.
I was 21 when I started my apprenticeship as a
cabinetmaker and of course I knew everything.

“No problem” means
“no problems except the ten we didn’t mention”
