I overheard this in the supermarket today.
Little boy to his dad: Remember, I don't waste my ideas. You should listen to me Dad, because if you don't, you'll be wrong.
I have no idea what he meant, but I just love the very idea of not wasting one's ideas.
The boy was, maybe, 5 or 6. He spoke with such confidence, as if whatever idea he had shared with his father was some sacred wisdom that he wouldn't share with just anyone. Or maybe it was that he wouldn't waste his time thinking up ideas that weren't important.
Either way, maybe we should all ask ourselves if we let our own ideas go to waste.
