Why can the instructor print "list" with interpolation before we've defined it with a value below? It's just okay?

I know this is hard to reach sorry IDK why I can't add a code block :( Video timestamp 1:06.

def create_list print "What is the list name? " name = gets.chomp ................................... def print_list(list) puts "List: #{list['name']}" puts "----" ...................................... list = create_list() puts list.inspect list['items'].push(add_list_item())
