    Found another example in a transcript of a discussion of a 2008 financial statement. Seems to mean “get down to very small details normally beneath the speaker’s notice” (as in individual grains of wheat):

    Michael Lapides – Goldman Sachs

    Got it, okay. And final question, I haven’t seen the queue up. Are you guys going to file the historical from MoPub in St. Joe’s? Meaning kind of… I’m just trying to think about the modeling of a quilt, I hate to get down in the wheat here, but the last since MoPub in St. Joe’s didn’t really file Form 1, I think the last filing date I had for this guys was one of their Missouri rate cases a year or so ago.

    Sorry to end the discussion, but I was misquoted. I actually did say, “down in the weeds,” but the interview was done on a cell phone.

    Hilarious, and even more hilarious that I found a backup example that actually pre-dated Tom’s misquoted quote. Technology strikes again…
