Brilliant ideas come at 4:00 am.
Have you ever heard the story of how the Rolling Stones got the song Satisfaction?
Keith Richards woke up in the middle of the night with the riff in his head. And somehow recorded it before passing out in a drunken stupor.
Have you ever heard where I figured out how to beat the casinos at roulette?
It was was brilliant...I was so excited! I tossed and turned after coming up with it. Finally I called Cousin Saul. We were gonna kick Atlantic City arse!
Saul quickly figured out what was wrong with my plan. (The casinos set betting limits...otherwise I had them)
Last night I woke up with this other brilliant idea!
I was too tired to jot it down...but awake enough to remember it.
The next time I went a plane trip I would buy a huge box of pens.
About an hour into the trip I would take said box of pens and walk down the aisle handing them out to the happy crowd.
SO TO SUM UP:
The song Satisfaction is better than me handing out a box of pens on a plane.
Handing out pens on a plane was brilliant at 4:00am.
