“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.”–Nolan Bushnell, entrepreneur.
Tonight at dinner, we were eating grilled hamburgers. The topic of our dinner conversation was about how to do impact testing on the Comfy Cup™ in our own backyard. We decided that we needed something about the size of a 7-11 year olds’ private parts for testing. For these tests, we didn’t want anyone to have to put their own testes on the line. Our seven-year-old daughter dipped her hand into a jar of mini dill pickles. She grasped one in her fist and held it proudly in the air. "Would this work?” Kyler grabbed the pickle and put it in his lap, as if to measure against his own private parts. "Yep, that should be about right." He replied. We all started cracking up hysterically. That, my friends, is how we tagged #protectyourpickle.
Immediately after dinner, we got to work testing and experimenting with the mini dill pickles. I'll never look at a pickle the same. Ever. Again.
