Walmart is a blight to humanity
the stealing of your thoughts,... which I find as genius as you described, ....just as they take your cash,... is yet more proof of the negative draining energy...

personal space
You find you have more personal space in line if you take a notepad and pen.  I've noticed people back away when they think the person near them is... eccentric.  :-)

Delightfully written post.  You sound like by x-husband.  He was always coming up with inventions and sure enough we'd see an infomercial or an ad for a new product and he shout "That's my invention!".  Yup - keep that pen and pad of paper with you.

Witty and creative - am sure people will be swiping up a product of yours very soon.

I must admit I write the most inspiring stuff while in the supermarket line
like you, buy the time I have the time to write it down Ive lost the momentum.. My brother who writes suggest I walk around with one of those small recording thingies.  Dictating my thoughts into it.  I can just imagine doing this in a bank and being arrested on a suspected conspiracy..

Your brain just keeps working, giving you brilliant ideas... while
forgetting each one just as fast. A tape recorder should help, you can probably write a masterpiece if all your thoughts were captured.

See, the partial schizophrenic in me believes that someone has implant radio probes in our brains and is reading our thoughts and stealing our ideas, then creating them and making the money we poor folk should be making

I wanted to make an exercise movie, back in the early 1960's, exercising to
Beatles music, but I didn't know how to make a movie in those days.  Now we have oooodles of exercise videos.  A whole industry of them.

Re: trisha, what you need to do is invent a remote tv of some sort that people

I have thought about ways to ZAP people in line so I could get out of there sooner.  For instance, some sort of freeze/unfreeze gun.  That might work.  I could also make them get out of my way when they park their cart in the middle of the aisle so I can't maneuver around them and get my own shopping done.  Of course, I've thought of more painful methods than freezing, but that's only when I'm really frustrated and those weapons already exist...

trisha, what you need to do is invent a remote tv of some sort that people
waiting in line at Walmart could watch, or throw things at.... (maybe monitors at each checkout so we could say hi to ourselves).....
