comment apply_filters() and the_excerpt are giving unexpected results
No worries. I always fear I'm not making sense when I ask questions. I was pulling from the database, but I didn't want to open a whole 'nother loop since I have things like get_the_title($post->ID) available. The final line of code was $description = wp_trim_excerpt(get_post($post->ID)->post_content);

comment apply_filters() and the_excerpt are giving unexpected results
Thanks for the link. I knew I could set up an additional loop, but it seems like overkill. My solution was adding a filter. I see it as a little elbow grease now for a lot less code later.

comment apply_filters() and the_excerpt are giving unexpected results
From the Codex entry on the_excerpt: "it will display an automatic excerpt which refers to the first 55 words of the post's content." I'm looking to mimic that behavior outside of the loop.

That returns blank if no excerpt was entered for the post. I need to mimic the actions of get_the_excerpt() (creating an excerpt if none exists).

Sorry, that's what I meant. Thanks for clarifying.
