I'll Never be an Edison

"How about a filter for a fan?" I asked my friend. "I'm sick and tired of cleaning fans each fall."

"Good idea. Check it out," said my son and my friend, Paulette.

"I've got it! How about a pull out shelf that fits below the cabinets for short people!"

"So how will it work?"

"I don't know. I just have the idea.....and the want it for me."

"How about ........"

Same responses.

I consider myself the think tank. I come up with the best ideas ever! I don't know how to make them happen. I just want someone to put my ideas into action. I come up with a new idea at least once a month. And....get the same responses. Darn it.

Maybe my ideas are not true inventions. My ideas are re-inventions. I am finding better ways to make my life easier. I'm short. I notice a lot things that could help short people. I have great ideas. Ah. What can I do? I don't know why I mention my wonderful new ideas. I get the same responses each time. I don't know how to build a better dog house, but I have ideas to improve one. If I did invent something, everyone would want to help me and cash in on the good fortune I would find. Sigh.

I'll never be an Edison. The light bulb that goes on in my head never seems to stay lit. Perhaps I'm just meant to be a thinker.
