Thank you, Netflix!


What do you do when you wake up at 5:00 a.m. with a great idea, but you don’t want to wake your lovely wife by getting up to grab the laptop? You grab the Netfilx envelope that happens to be within reach and write down your ideas. Fortunately a nub of a pencil happened to be in the vicinity as well.

I’ve written enough strip ideas on bank deposit slips, grocery receipts and gum wrappers to fill a drawer.

  1. Good idea. If you don’t write it down when you just thought of it, you might not re-think it. I wonder how many things like that never return to our minds….

  2. How awake are you when you do this? I’ve heard from folks who made notes while half-asleep… that they never made sense of, once they were awake!

    • Bob, A very old reply to this question: I’m not very awake, and the ideas are usually pretty bad once I read them in the morning.
