Are your ideas all wet?

Where do you get your best and brightest ideas? Mine pop into my head in the shower.

Scientifically, I don’t know if the hot water stimulates blood flow to my noggin, but I noticed that I become a brilliant thinker in my 3′ x 4′ white space. Blame any genius ideas after 7 a.m. on thick strong coffee.

Recently, a fellow “shower thinker” had brainstorm while lathering up one morning and probably thought (like I have), “gee, I should keep a notepad near the shower so I can write these ideas down.”

After many soggy, torn and illegible notes, this frustrated doodler realized he’d have to find a steam-proof way to communicate, and thus invented AquaNotes®. The notes are made of waterproof paper that is totally recyclable, environmentally friendly, and made 100 percent in the U.S.A. The pencil is waterproof and water just beads up on the paper, which is perforated so you can take your idea from shower to office.

As often happens, life circumstances and the need for convenience leads to innovation. And so the story didn’t end for this inventor. After marrying the love of his life, he wanted to leave love notes for his new bride that she would see when she stepped into the shower and –you guessed it– his product line expanded to include Aqua LoveNotes®.

        Much nicer than saying ‘get your mind out of the shower!’ 😀
