The word punctilious came to me from Bret in ABQ on the back of a postcard cut from a Marble Red Ale six pack which reads “punctiliously brewed in ABQ NM USA” As I told Bret, I had to look it up.
This may be the one and only day I’ll use that word in a sentence as I prefer short-shorter-the-shortest word that gets to the point. I do however have a deep appreciation for attention-to-detail. Maybe I should just say I dig details.
You’ll often find me talking to myself as I roll around town on a bike going over things I’ve gone over before. Repeating repeatedly. Back in the day when I was a legal messenger and expected to catch the mistakes of highly trained legal secretaries, paralegals and attorneys, I’d be mumbling to myself “we appreciate your attention to detail, unfortunately it’s all the wrong details”
But the details are where it’s at. Sometimes I go downstairs for a zip tie or electrical tape and I get distracted with some petty detail like a Scott Norwood card stapled on the wall oh just so and I forget why I went down there in the first place. Some say that’s called getting old. I like to call it attention-to-detail.
Barking up the wrong tree is fine with me. Just keep it outta my face.
