|Creative People Frequently Have Stains They Can Not Account For|
They Frequently Have Stains on their Shirts Which They Have No Idea Where They Came From. Take for example, right now. It's six-thirty and yet I already have a stain which appears to be barbecue sauce. However it tastes like bearnaise. Barbecue sauce is red, and bearnaise is pale amber. I have had neither in at least a month. Mysterious.
They Are Often Funny Without Intending to Be. This happens to me all the time. Everyone will crack up after I say something perfectly serious.
They Really Love Skittles Candy. I don't know if this is true of all creative people or just me. But seriously, have you tried Skittles? They're delicious.
They Look a Whole Lot Better Standing in Front of the Mirror Than They Do in Photographs. Look at a picture of the slouching, pot-bellied middle aged man that I appear to be, then come to my house and stand beside me while I'm in front of a mirror. My posture is better, my stomach is flat, and I could swear, I even have more hair. I can't explain how this is possible, but it's true.
They Form This Weird Gunk in the Corners of Their Mouths When They Sleep. I don't know if this has anything to do with creativity, but it's something I've noticed.
Their Spouses Tell Lies About Them. I regret to say this, but it cannot be denied. For example, Nancy, whom I love dearly in spite of all her faults, has the persistent delusion that I snore. All my arguments to the contrary have failed to persuade her.
