CaptCliff on Why I Really Should Write it Down Next Time

It seems like every time I think of an ingenious solution to a global problem like world poverty, mental illness, or gun control, JUST when I’m ready to write it all down and go through its simple but elegant Einstein-ish logic, I get hopelessly sidetracked by a more pressing personal matter like laundry, expired milk in the fridge, or having to answer the front door for two young Republican-Mormon looking guys wearing matching suits and clutching clipboards. Their glazed eyes and frozen smiles morph slowly into panic and terror when I answer the door wearing nothing but my fluffy robe and a 4 day unshaven look, like some mutant cross between a biker and, well, a cross-dresser. Also, it doesn’t take long for them, even without normal interpersonal skills or special training in social cues to see that my facial expression is saying, “You just interrupted my epiphany and now I have to kill you both with my fluffy winter slippers.”   Usually they dont even wait to hand me their whiny brochures or ask for a donation and instead flee for their lives while throwing dozens of their Watch Tower newsletters in my general direction, like Air Force One deploying clouds of anti-missile chaff. The problem is once I settle down to write up my earth shattering, once in a lifetime realization, I have pretty much forgotten it…..kind of like the milk.
