Affirming something is over my head can be the summary of a recent conversation with a gaming enthusiast. Details regarding the world of gaming might seem adventurous, exciting and even quite daring to some. In my case they went mainly over my head.
That most of the ideas managed to go over my head says more about my limitations perhaps than those of gaming. The art, science maybe, of tabletop battles, miniature re-enactments, or whatever the correct terms are, is something I have never felt inclined to delve into.
As a hobby I appreciate it has many millions of fans, one of which could be you. In any case, these words today are not meant as a criticism or slur against either the activity or its participants.
Thinking about things going over my head, I could have chosen to write about car engines or cake decorating, to list two of many possible candidates. Like everyone, I choose interests based on curiosity, a specific external input or a necessity.
With spare time limited, it is not strange to allocate any free time with attention. Letting certain things go over my head is a conscious choice.
That said, circumstances change and the need to develop further knowledge could lead me to re-evaluate what I am letting go over my head, also in areas of life previously ignored.
And you? If you’d like to share what goes over your head, please feel free to leave a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for reading about what is over my head at present.
