Woke up at four AM. I was delighted...my invention was awarded a patent. Then I realized that a patent was worthless. I had to collect the royalties that were due.
I am like the guy who invented the time delay windshieild wiper... great idea.. and every car used the idea..but nobody paid him. He spent the rest of his life trying to collect royalties. Critics and friends alike told him to forget it...invent something else, but no. He wanted crediti for his invention, and spent a forturne and a lifetime seeking it.
So I woke up frustrated. My idea was granted a patent, but I was cold. I still had to get up and turn on the furnace. So the great inventor rose. Was I up in the middle of the night, or just up early? I guess that depends on whether I go back to bed or not.
I haven't decided.
