            Confession: I'm a dumbass! As a kid, I thought my aunt was strange because in her thick southern accent I remember her saying, "I'm off to my toe painting class!"🎨 I am today years old when I learned that she was actually saying "tole painting" and that *I* am the weird one. 🤔

Example: Python data types - brackets vs. parenthesis L as in List is half a square, and [ is half a square, so a List uses brackets: my_list = [1,2,3] If I said "Yer' Tuple is showing!" you'd guess Tuples were round, so use parenthesis: my_tuple = (0,0)
