The Hazards of Cleaning Out Your Idea File

Right now, because the online notes service I use is going away, I'm in the process of transferring all my story ideas. I'm reading through ideas that I've jotted down since 1995, and I'm feeling a little like Paul Reiser's character in the "Mad About You" episode "New Year's Eve" (December 17, 1995). Paul has bought a new wallet, and as he cleans out his old one he finds a note and he reads it aloud to Jamie. Thanks to Nomi, I have the exact quote. He says, "Oh, remember this? 'Idea for a movie: bus can't go slower than 55 or it explodes.'"
