On having ideas in the shower

Believe it or not, there are actually people out there who read this blog. That fact alone surprises me. I am always startled when someone posts a comment. It's like talking to yourself and having someone catch you at it. (I really hope it isn't only me that has had that experience) Someone asked me, “where do you come up with this weird stuff?” Sadly, "this weird stuff" IS the story of my life.

Most of the things that end up being posted on this blog, appear in my brain while I am in the shower. I don’t know why that is. Standing in the mechanically enhanced downpour, I suddenly recall the strangest moments or observations. The collection of memories then seems to ooze out like an overfilled taco onto this blog. Because of my shower induced flashbacks, I had considered naming this blog, Naked Wet Man. It would probably get more hits on the Search Engines that way, but the image it evokes is just too unsettling, even for me.

I know what you mean about getting ideas in the shower, I dont know what it is, maybe you get relaxed, I dont know but whatever it is it's nice. Some of my best ideas come in the shower, I'm writing songs and a story right now and i always think of things in the shower and by the time i get upstairs i forget them, which bugs me a lot.

Try saying the words aloud. As long as no one catches you talking to yourself, it is a great aid to memory.

Love your blog! And I understand the shower syndrome...for me it's crossing the street, just as the light changes and the cars start careening directly towards me...wait, does someone have a pen?
--aa.

Thank you for saying so. I'm afraid my "say it aloud" trick won't help you much in that situation unless you are also pushing a shopping cart and wearing six winter coats at the same time.
