Yesterday, me and my g/f went to Disney. We have annual passes, so this has been the norm for a few months now. Anyways, the bus pulls into the main
gate, and my g/f sees a Mickey Pumpkin- a Mickey Pumpkin head with mouse ears. She states " Wow! they could turn that into a set of mouse ears and
sell them!" Me, being the smart ass that I am, stated as matter of factly as possible: "They just heard your idea, and they already started making
them. They'll have them out by this afternoon".
That afternoon: 1:40, we're walking thru one of the gift shops on our 'beat the heat' trip to the front entrance of Disney Studios, and head for
Epcot. I got distracted by something, when my g/f stops, reaches into a pile of Halloween themed stuff, and PULLS OUT A PUMPKIN MICKEY MOUSE HAT.
I nearly went to the floor laughing. It even came with a stem!
Now, I know exactly how I did this. Knowing Disney, they already had this idea (Not to mention the endless plethora of Mickey Mouse ear variants as of
late anyways). The rest was pure (hilarious) coincidence. I have a penchant for timing, and knowing how certain things work, I can easily have a
scenario that if it didnt work would be plausible, and when it does, makes me look like a freaking Jedi genius. There's other times I do similar- and
it's taking what could be plausible, and what isnt, and boiling it down to something workable.
