How do you explain your excitment, when you fix that bug?

I hope the title makes sense because this is something I have been thinking about for a little while now. You know that feeling when you finally get that bug, and it turned out to be something relatively simple. You've spent hours Googling, and browsing Stack Overflow, and then when you finally get it fixed, that feeling. How do you explain that to someone who isn't a developer or even someone who doesn't know much about IT? If I had to try and explain that to my grandparents or even my parents, they would probably look at me like I'm crazy 😂

Hahaha. The other night I was trying to figure out why this repo wasn't pushing my post to dev.to, all my tests were passing. Turns out I had one too many tags in the post 🙄 only took me a couple hours to figure it out

It would explain as if it were in those investigative movies where the detective has that “Gotcha” moment, you know?

Probably something like that

I hadn't thought of it like that before. It makes a lot of sense, and I think it's easier for people to relate to.
