Thank you Uncle Timmy, for being so understanding. This is what I
have come to love about the Python community.
As you surmise, I have been coding Forth at the Cheez Whiz factory for
about 35 years. I was lead designer of the WEINOR 59 (Whiz Extruder
and Injector, Numerically Operated Robot) and only just discovered
Python a few months ago, after a dare from Melvin X, an employee of
mine who is the Primary Cheez Canal De-gunker and Tube Washer. Melvin
is a very bright kid, but even so, I was quite skeptical until he
boosted our Whiz Canister Thruput seven fold after converting the
prime Cheez pump control software from Forth to Python in a (very
productive, and crackerful) weekend.

Those are not the only curly things I reach for when I program Python.
