the prior art to see how wrong I was :)

I like to do that too :)

That's what I tried the first time I ever did any parsing (it might have even just been lexing at that point). Wound up with several notebook pages filled with some half-baked bullshit "theory" that made no sense, and then gave up while trying to distill general rules out of it. I'm kind of amazed just how far I managed to dig down that particular rabbit hole.

It was fun, though. And it made learning the proper theory easier since it made so much more sense than my crazy version ;)
