I am upset beyond words. Every once in awhile I come up with a clever idea... tell my friends... ha ha... laugh about it... "I should patent it" ha ha.. then forget about it. One of these ideas I have been talking about for over five years. A mashed potato machine. In the same vein as a bread machine, you would dump in the potatoes and it would peel, cook and mash them.

I should have done something about it. Homemaker Carmina O'Connor thought of the same thing and patented it and now her mashed potato machine is the Invention of the Year. Joel found the link and I was crushed. My hopes and dreams dashed. I will never be known as the inventor of the mashed potato machine.

This follows close on the heels of my "rivet cornered so it can be posted into the sand beach blanket" idea showing up on the shelves of Target last week. Clearly someone is easedropping on me and my brainstorms.
