Mister is sleeping and I start sprinting my cleaning marathon. I put in the laundry. I put two pacifiers in to boil. I dust the furniture. I clean the mirrors and glass. I Swiffer the floor. I move the laundry to the dryer. I clean the bathroom. I Wet Jet the floor. Mister wakes up from his nap. I feed him and he dozes. I change his diaper and watch the gummy grin light up his face. We play. Then, I smell a strange smell. It smells almost like when I overloaded the washer and burned a belt, but less electrical. It smells like melting plastic. Then I remember. I put the pacifiers in to boil but I didn’t take them out. I race downstairs. The two pacifiers are now melted to the pot and each other. If I forget about boiling pacifiers, how can I expect to remember story ideas?
What do you do when you get a good idea (so it doesn’t get melted to the pot like the pacifiers)?
