Keep in mind I've shopped at the same grocery store for 15 years. So, my million dollar idea is this: on each shopping cart is an electronic device where you type in the item you're looking for and then it tells you the location of the item. Badda bing badda boom. Grocery trips will be cut in half. Busy people everywhere will rejoice. And maybe or maybe not world peace will ensue.
I overheard another great million dollar idea at a birthday party last week. The idea came from the birthday boy's grandpa who was reminiscing about when his children were young and he would dress them in Garanimals. Are you familiar with this line of clothing? Basically on each tag of a shirt or a pair of pants is an animal. A young child can dress himself and ensure that he matches if, for example, he chooses a shirt with a tiger on the tag and a pair of pants with a tiger on the tag.
Anyway, this man was saying how he wished they had Garanimals for men. Brilliant, right? My husband sure could use it. He's always asking me if things match (No honey, you can't wear striped shirts with plaid pants) and his sense of color is a little off (he swears he owns a pair of white shorts but in truth they're a light khaki).
So, there you have it. Two million dollar ideas. Take 'em or leave 'em.
P.S. We're excited to debut our two newest Pear Shaped Thoughts writers this week. Look for Chelsea on Thursday and Lisa on Saturday!
