Weird and dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks idea for storing a hodl stack of XMR?

So, I have this goofy-ass idea of just setting up an XMR hotwallet, making note of the deposit address, the creation date and block height, and the seed words, and then deleting it from all devices.

Then I store the seed words in a top secret place somewhere… and whenever I get XMR I want to hodl, I just send to it to my deposit address. Then I don’t need a digital hardware wallet or even a hotwallet at all. Right? I mean if I’m not planning on selling any XMR for the next 5 to 10 years, why wouldn’t this be even safer than a USB-connecting hardware wallet?

Is this a dumbass idea and should I just get a hardware wallet?
