    • Nope. I’m nowhere near bright enough to think that up. All it means is that what appears so obvious is, in my experience, not very obvious at all. There’s another word for it. But I can’t remember what I meant. It was quite a long time ago and my mind clutches a thing and then moves on really quickly.
