Shower Moments

I'm sure you're like me (or I'm like you and everyone else)--you have your most brilliant thoughts, machinations, epiphanies in the shower. Why is this?

The person to provide the most creative answer will receive a $20 gift certificate to the retailer of their choice.

To submit your answer, reply to this blog, tell me which retailer you prefer, and how to reach you. (And please keep it clean; pun intended.)

I'll announce the winner on Friday, July 29.

Ok, I've got it. Water is often associated with birthing metaphors. And birthing is wrapped up in creativity. So there we are, reenacting our own births every morning in the shower ritual. That's why we come up with all our big ideas in the shower! I see no one else has come up with anything else yet, which means I'm winning...

I believe many of us have epiphanies in the shower because it is often the only time we are alone. It is just us, the water and maybe some really nice smelling shower gel. :) It is one of the few times, sometimes the only time, during the day when we can relax and give all our attention to ourselves. While we don't always need quiet for creative juices to flow, we can't have other people (lovers, bosses, friends & family) clamoring for attention. Plus, singing in the shower is just plain fun! We'll see if my theory is right....I wrote this in the shower. :)

Wow -- this is too tempting to pass up, but I really can't think of a witty/plausible reply. I'll need to save this topic for noodling the next time I'm in the shower...
