Say What?

By Darvell Hunt

“You can’t be cop if you have more than 3 false teeth. To write a detective book, you need to be a cop. You can get a letter of recommendation to be a cop if you have more than 3 false teeth, and then you can write a detective book.”

I woke up at 3am this morning with a great idea for a story. I jotted down the above and went back to sleep. I have absolutely no idea what that means.

There are some stories that hit you at certain times that will never come again. If you don’t write them down when you think of them, they may never come again. Sometimes you only get one chance.

I’m afraid my idea from last night is gone, even though I wrote it down. I’m not 100% sure about this, but I don’t think it was any great loss. Not this time, anyway.

That's hilarious. I have written down some bizarre things while half asleep as well.

I had to read it a few times. :) It is pretty funny the bizarre things that I say, or think in my sleep stricken mind. You did give me a laugh... I have done that myself.
