Again for the first time

You know when you have a great idea and think, "Whoa...! What a great idea. I should write this down," but instead go to bed thinking, "This is such a great idea that I'll never forget it!"

That's a bad idea. You should write it down.

That said, the joy of finally remembering the the idea is at parity with, if not better than, hatching the idea in the first place.

"The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time."
-Friedrich Nietzsche
