I am trying to understand Kenneth discuss getattribute.
In the following code he says the
except KeyError: return super().__getattribute__(item)
will look for an attribute with dot notation in the original dict
What would be an example of an an "attribute with dot notation in the original dict"
that would not be found in the 'try' section but would be found in the 'except' section?
He does not give an example unfortunately.

Good question. Python uses the
__getattribute__ method to get methods as well as "regular" attributes.
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
