So, I had this idea. It was a Great Idea. You know the kind. It came to me while I was brushing my teeth (which is almost as good a time to get ideas as showering) and I knew it would make a fantastic blog entry.
Unfortunately, it was late, and I had to work the next morning. I sat at the computer and flirted with the idea of staying up a little longer. I stared at the clock. Actually, I stared at the clock long enough to have probably written the entry. But I ultimately decided that it was too late and that if I didn't go to bed immediately, I would be a zombie the next day.
I went to bed.
On the commute from my computer to my bed, I decided it might be good to write the idea down. But I was several feet away from a pad and paper and seriously lacking in all forms of motivation. So, I didn't write it down. After all, with such a Great Idea, how could I forget it?
As I got into bed, I knew I would forget it.
You know what? I forgot it.
I've learned my lesson. I must make a note of Great Ideas before they escape me. This is uncharted territory for me, because up until now I haven't had a problem. I forget things, sure, but never Great Ideas.
Now I know.
Maybe I'd better write down this lesson before I forget it too.
