It can be dangerous to get hooked up into the small stuff. Outright, inright, sideright, upright, downright, or anyright. :lol:

When I was a kid in school, I wouldn't finish my reading assignments because I got hooked up on a word that I didn't understand. After talking with the teacher about my failing grades -- he suggested to me to keep on reading and don't get hooked up into the words that I didn't understand. I guess he was trying to say the same thing as "don't sweat it, more will be revealed". If it's important you'll come back to it -- if the further reading and revelations haven't already answered your questions.

Now, I can't remember if I was telling the teacher the truth... or, if I was using it as an excuse why I wasn't doing my reading and homework. I think, looking back on it, it was probably just an excuse. I never did like doing my homework. It interfered with my play time. :lol:
