THE VAPOR EFFECT

I've altered my brain!
Seriously!
While in bed last night, trying to fall asleep…
A great idea for a blog post popped into my mind.
The thought was clear—brilliant, actually.
Yet this morning…
All I have is a vague recollection…
Not of the idea…
Only that I had an idea.
So, for heaven’s sake?
Where did the idea go?
Yeah, I know—keep a pad by the bed…
But it wasn’t like I woke up in the middle of the night in a dreamy stupor…
Then fell back asleep…
I had been wide awake.
So, this morning, curious…
I Googled: thoughts, ideas, matter…
Wondering if thoughts and ideas have matter in a metaphysical way.
I learned “matter” is anything that has mass and takes up space.
And everything around us and in the entire universe…
Can be classified as either matter or energy.
Well, my thought took up space in my brain…
And it took energy to think it.
I also learned that temperature can change matter into another form.
Suddenly I realized…
I’ve been using a new “cool mist” humidifier in my bedroom…
And so you see?
The cool mist could very well have vaporized my thought!
And if it did—what form did my thought take and where did it go?
Hmm?
Sitting here now…
Drinking my coffee with the hot steam wafting up my nose…
I wonder how the temperature of this vapor will effect my brain…
And if my brilliant thought from last night will materialize.
Hmm?
Maybe it isn't the caffeine in coffee in tea that effects us as much as
The vapors.
I think I might be on to something.

Always, Em-Musing

hahaha! Your posts always make me giggle. What a weird and wonderful personality you have.

I think if your thoughts were to vaporize, they might travel in my direction via the wind. And if so, I'll be sure to catch it for you, when it rains down on me, scan it, and email it straight back to ya. ;o)

My brain will be waiting.

So that's where all my thoughts go. I've been wondering.

I've always found my ideas in the bathroom. Yeah, I spend a lot of time in there as that's the only place Monster Baby won't go when I'm there.

If I don't write them down, then they get 'flushed' instead of vaporized.

Sorry, it's Monday.

Oh, those darn vaporizers, lol! Maybe the idea will settle as dust once the vaporizer is off?

This is funny! I actually had some great thoughts last night and refused to write them down because I was too tired! Of course they've all evaporated.... BTW, your tag on my blog is hysterical. ;)
