The Evolution of a Freebie
... this one, that is.
The other day, I was spending a ridiculous amount of time in a doctor's waiting room, but at least I had a chance to read some magazines. I came across an interesting advertisement, and into my head popped an idea for a freebie for visual memory and categories. "I'll make some category cards," I thought to myself, "and just give everybody the info about where to find the ad. No copyright issues that way." Noting that it was a July magazine, I jotted a list of twenty categories as I waited. Actually, with all the time I waited, I probably could have listed 40 or 60 categories!
When I got home, I looked for the advertisement on the same page of the same magazine that I already had at home. Well, the ad wasn't there. Long story short, after a lot of time spent researching it, I found out that I had overlooked the fact that the doctor's issue was from July 2011!!
Lessons Learned: Look more carefully, and never expect to find a current magazine in a doctor's waiting room.
So, turning lemons into lemonade, I gathered a collection of doodads and, feeling kind of Walter Wick-ish, took my own photo, changed just a few category cards, and here it is!
