“Currus bovem trahit Praepostere” [Put the cart before the horse]

It seems I have always done things out of order. I purchased my first car before knowing how to drive, I bought DVDs before I had a player. In Paris, in 1994, Merchant/Ivory asked if I was an actor before I was one (I lied and said I was then quickly scurried to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art). Looking at a vintage typewriter…
