They say the Devil is in the details. Does that mean detail-oriented people have one hell of a time? As for sweating the details, that notion might be attributed to the fact hell is reportedly hot (the further you are from them, the less you perspire). Of course the road to hell is paved with good intentions, so it should come as no surprise I had intended to write an inspiring note this morning, instead, you get this (I know, details, details).
In thinking about the origin of the word details, it occurs to me the Devil has a tail… a D-tail, if you will… (this is probably not the correct etymology, so don’t go around spreading this notion). Another word that begins with the letter D is donut (perhaps a better urban myth to start). This morning Ben Peterson (donut boy) broke away from his detail-laden advanced computer model long enough to make a donut run at LaMar’s. So whether you are a big picture person or you’re down in the weeds, come on down and help yourself to a delicious donut.
