Why is this failing? Error did not see the write items being printed

def loopy(items): # Code goes here for item in items: if items.index(item) == 0 and item == 'a': continue print(item)

breaks.py
def loopy(items):
    # Code goes here
    for item in items:
        if items.index(item) == 0 and item == 'a':
            continue
        print(item)
