Have you ever made a decision based on an assumption (see Looks can be deceiving), but then later discover you didn’t have all of the information at your disposal?  And to add insult to injury (a common idiom that doesn’t help matters), it’s really a moot point — of no practical importance; irrelevant — because regardless of your assumptive reasoning, it was still the right choice to make.  Okay, did all of that make sense?  Perhaps a hypothetical illustration will help.  Consider the couple in the movie The Wedding Planner.  Mary falls in love with Steve, but the timing is all wrong.  Why?  He’s engaged to be married to one of her clients.  Consequently, when she discovers this, she keeps her feelings to herself because loving Steve is a moot point.  I won’t ruin the ending for those of you who haven’t seen it (it’s an oldie but goodie) but, suffice it to say, I’m a sap for happy endings.

Is your life filled with a moot point or two?
