Chance Remark By Spouse Leads to Creative Effort

Here’s how it went down, as best I can remember.

Wife:  You know, there aren’t any songs about all the dud guys you go out with before you meet the right one.

Me:  (ceasing strenuous workout, putting down French play): Really, dear?

Wife: And that’s true of heaps of women.  You waste time on losers, because they’re a bit unusual, and then the right guy is someone completely normal.  Someone you would have ignored when you were younger.

Me (really thinking about cold fusion): Ah, yes.

Wife: It would make a good song.
