trade secret

My husband Don is head of a creative department in an ad agency, so being creative is his job. His job depends on getting ideas. (And we depend on his job!) He writes down an idea as soon as it comes to him, so it won't get away. That's why you see him scribbling on napkins, backs of envelopes, even sometimes on his linen hankies! I just found a matchbook from California in his blue summer jacket. Sure enough, there's even scribbling in that. Can't make out most words, only "Joy" and "Palm". Which must mean he's pitching the dish detergent account. Shhhh. Don't tell friends at Grey!
