n.— «Using a technique called “sheeting,” I was supposed to get the thing to fly gentle figure 8s between 10 and 2 on an imaginary clock face in the sky. Instead, the kite was mimicking the dive-bombing actions of the mockingbirds.» —“Riding the next extreme wave” by Joe Miller in Nags Head News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) July 18, 2005.
