Realizing that I had not practiced an engine-out approach in too long, I decided to "fail" my Lycoming while doing touch-and-goes at Jacksonville's Herlong airport.

"Cherokee 69T. Simulated engine-out and short approach."

[After a few moments, I saw that I would be seriously short.]

"Cherokee 69T again, simulating getting my engine back on!"

(The next try was spot-on.)
