When I was in high school, whenever someone made an unintentionally profound remark, especially one that had nothing to do with the conversation at hand, someone else would always say “wow, that’s deep.” We’d also say it when someone belched or… well, you know….
For the bloggers out there (that would be nearly everyone reading this): Do you ever get writing a blog post and realize about halfway through that you’re really getting a little too deep into the topic? That happens to me a lot, especially during the A to Z Challenge, where we try as much as possible to keep the posts on the short side. I get writing, and writing, trying as much as I can to simplify it, while at the same time making the thing so difficult to understand that even I don’t know what I’m talking about. The way I usually fix that is to trow it all away and start with something new. Something that I hope won’t make me do that.
Off topic, but something I wanted to mention: I’ve gone back to the classic editor in WordPress. Their latest modification to the block editor, a.k.a. Gutenberg, made it less friendly and more of a pain in the ass. Besides, I discovered that I was writing as much HTML code as I was with the classic editor, so it wasn’t really saving me time, and I get a little fussy about things like centering that obviously mean very little to the people who created the block editor. Anyway, that’s all I had to say about that. Much more, and I’d be getting way too deep.
