The other day I was watching a mainstream morning news program that will remain nameless (OK, fine, its name begins with a ‘T’ and ends in an ‘oday’).
The anchors were working with an ‘Idea Specialist’, who was sharing her thoughts on how to pass the time should you find yourself temporarily without power.
Aside from my feelings on someone referring to themselves as an ‘Idea Specialist’ and the fact that the very audience to whom she was speaking was notably, you know, WITHOUT THE POWER TO SEE HER, I found myself transfixed by the suggestions that were being tossed around: Turn each room in your house into a different vacation destination! Speak in code! Do everything backwards and act like you like it!
While I am willing to do everything backwards, I’m just not sure that I love the part about being told that I need to like it…
But I kept listening, because, as with so many things on TV these days, I just can’t look away.
And then I realized: I want to be an Idea Specialist, too! I want to travel the land slinging my sweet intellectual gems! I want to share my ideas with the world via Matt Lauer and Al Roker!
How can I get started?
I guess I’ll need some, uh, ideas…
