Trying to find first 2 letter word in a list of words
Hello ndc85430

I am trying to teach myself Python from How to Think Like a Computer Scientist so I must admit to being very much a tyro, please forgive my lack of knowledge. Now answering your hint I think that the first iteration passing over "this" produces a False and so the function should continue on to the second word in the list "is", which is a 2 letter word so the function should return True and stop iterating at that point and move to the print command outputting "The first 2 letter word is is". I still cannot see why the function does not do this.
