Pee on the post
When I come up with an idea for a comic, a sketch, or something to write about, I usually don’t have anything to write it down on. I’m driving, or I’m walking around, or I’m at a party, and I don’t carry a notebook everywhere I go. So instead, I save it in my phone as a draft of a text message. It’s not the best solution, though. Besides wanting to write the idea down quickly so I don’t have to have my phone out wherever I am, typing into my phone (a flipper, not one of those smartypants phones) is a hassle. Instead of writing it all out in detail, I try to condense the idea into just a few misspelled words or a phrase that’ll jog my memory of the idea. Most of the time it works fine.
It gets tricky when I’m drunk though. Jogging a drunk memory is tougher than a sober one because I have to think like drunk-me to put the pieces together. Then when I do, the ideas aren’t even that great.
I have this one draft note, though, which I absolutely can’t recall what it’s about. It says, “Pee on the post.” I don’t know if it’s a command, an observation, which post it’s about, who’s doing the peeing, if I came up with it for the alliteration, anything. It is a mystery. Doofy stuff.
