It was funny because it was so relatable. The planets must have been aligned because the day before I found it, I attended the CSS Cafe meetup where Josh Comeau gave this excellent talk on the hidden/secret fundamentals of CSS which covered this exact issue. He used some great analogies for this and other CSS concepts that will finally stick with me. I hope. 🤞
