On the Probability of Success

A conversation I had with my wife Cindy the other day:

Cindy: "It's so hot!"
Adam: "We should invent like a portable room with air conditioning and just drive it around."
Cindy: "You mean like a car?"
Adam: "No, no. We'll put a couch in it and a TV or something. We can rent it out!"
Cindy: "Good luck with that, honey. I think you've got a better chance with getting published."
Adam: "Wow. I didn't think the idea was THAT bad."

Oh, oh, that just hurts!

Matthew MacNish said...

Ouch! Though, she may have a point. Why not just get a conversion van with a big TV?

Combine the two, make an air conditioned book-mobile, and go around selling your books.

Actually, that sounds like a really awful 70's movie.

Happy Weekend!

My conversation with my wife when she finished reading my book:

Helen: "Wow, this is good. I can't believe you wrote it."

Matt: "Ummm... thanks, I think."

Helen: "I mean, it's like a real book."

Matt: "You can stop complementing me now."
