Looking around I’m seeing many friends and acquaintances getting the recognition they deserve. To be Freshly Pressed is truly amazing, so congrats to Le Clown, The Ringmistress, and The Roller Giraffe. (I also feel the need to include Madame Weebles.) This has caused me to wonder what I could do to leave a positive footprint on this earth. How can I make this world a better place, like the people above have? There are all sorts of ideas that one could have. Peace, Love, Hope comes to mind. (Hah, you see what I did there? Is this trademarked? If not, back off. I’m looking at you Obama.) Is this too much – too big of an idea? Probably, so I figured I should try to focus on the smaller things in life. This is what I’ve come up with.
The first idea is (extra) small fries, but still not bad. From time to time I leave my drink out when I go to bed. This is a very
gross convenient habit to have come morning. The first thing I need to usually do when I wake up is wet my whistle. The problem is my drink ends up watered down, every time. What are we to do about this? I know. Let’s develop a product, whether it be Kool-Aid or Crystal Lite doesn’t matter, that takes into consideration the possibility of melting ice. What do you think? Is this marketable? Are you absent-minded? Do you enjoy having your drink cold? What do you do if you’re a slow drinker? You go for a Flavor-Aid. No matter how much water gets added, it will still retain its flavor.
I’ve come to realize that first ideas are usually stale, so hold on to your knickers as I reveal the second one. I don’t have much need for this next product, but I think many other people will. I’ve noticed that some ladies are often in need of a hair thingy. I’ve also noticed that they are
often always sometimes late. How about we try to fix both of these problems at once? It’s Scrunchy Time! A hair thingy that doubles, conveniently, as a watch. A perfect product for the ladies…and hippies too. When not worried about your hair getting in your face, you have a very wonderful time-keeper right there on your wrist. And when the wind blows, you have something that will save you so much time. The tag lines write themselves. Hmm…maybe time to move on to the bread and butter.
This year my Muddah and Bruddah have decided to have Thanksgiving with my Grandparents in Seattle. They’re leaving me here all alone. I don’t really feel this way, but it is fun giving them a hard time about it. And I’m sure one of two things is going to happen. Either someone is going to invite me over, or I’m going to have a Hebrew National hotdog, wrapped in bacon, over at Faddah’s house. (I can’t speak for Faddah, but I mean no disrespect. I have actually witnessed this meal being prepared.) In any case I was over at Muddah’s house tonight, for dinner. She asked, again, if I was going to be okay. I assured her that I would, and that I would probably just pick up a Hot Pocket or two for that special holiday. This was a joke…but, it got me to thinking.
How about a Thanksgiving themed Hot Pocket? Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and gravy all wrapped up in a convenient package, with its own weird sleeve, ready to go. You have to admit, it sounds just as tasty (or gross) as any other Hot Pocket flavor out there. And you know what? I bet they taste better the next day too. Pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce flavored Hot Pockets sold separately.
I wonder, have any of these products been thought of yet? I hope not. These are great. If you
take steal borrow some of these ideas from me, and end up making a lot of money, yeah, I want some of that money…just saying.
