One of the greatest discoveries I’ve made over the past few years is the unparalleled effectiveness of bar napkins in brain storming and planning processes. Pretty much I’m convinced that the Fibonacci sequence was first realized through a marathon note taking session on a string of whiskey soaked napkins. Also, this was how the pilot episode of Twin Peaks was written.
The point is that I think bar napkins deserve their due as a viable platform for ideas generated during drinking. How else are you supposed to remember that really useful insult generator your friend came up with?
The problem is that now I’m worried that I’ll miss something very important if I don’t dedicate a portion of every drinking session to sketching out a list, letter to the editor or scientific hypothesis on a bar napkin. Which is maybe getting annoying to people and maybe also resulted in me being really disappointed recently when my brunch companions vetoed the “Is it Cheating or Not?” venn diagram session.
Please help me legitimize the art form by sending me your bar napkin lists.
