This happens to me all the time. I’ll come up with a funny joke or something. A pun. I pat myself on the back: “You funny guy!”
But then I google the idea: Wuh whoa, it’s taken! Done. Often more than once.
In the “good old days,” I would have remained in back-patting mode. Told the joke to others. No one would have known the difference. Now? No such luxury!
Anyone else experience this?
